It’s Nice That

Another utterly random find! “It’s Nice That” magazine (…and I have to admit, its LOVE at first-sight…)

“It’s Nice That” is absolutely jam-packed with superbly interesting features on artists from a variety of disciplines and at various stages of their career trajectory (from student to seasoned.) The magazine is beautifully printed, on thick thick textured/recycled(?) paper. The features range from a highlight, to full-on interview, each are fascinating…. Love it…

Once you open “It’s Nice That”, you wont put it down until you’ve read the entire magazine! Yes really, it’s that good…

I was happy to see, just a few pages in, the work of Alex Trochut (see “Vroom” post) – alongside is the fantastic Oliver Jeffers iconic illustrated story “Lost and Found” (…a story about a boy and who finds a penguin and decides to return him, home….) been made into a 3D Film, by Studio AKA (I had no idea, and am so excited to hear that!)

I was also pretty transfixed reading the Eike König interview, founder of HORT design studio, it really read as a fantastic place to work…The Jacob Dahlgren interview caught my eye, having seen “The world, things, life” at the Venice Biennial in 2007 and also because of his striped t-shirt addiction, er, very interesting…

Another truly fascinating read, Andreas Laszio Konrath‘s “A road to somewhere” – a really sweet and genuinely heartfelt self- exploratory journey through-out his childhood, how those things that effect us as kids, can, if we allow it, shape the people we’re to be; be this the cruelty of kids, picking on another for a foreign-sounding name, to the love of death metal or punk music, or of skateboards or photography:

itsnicethat15There are just so many fascinating highlights, that I run the risk of literally listing them all here,. so just final couple to mention and I’ll stop, “Swimming Pool” by Leandro Erlich (below left) and “Urban Collectables” by ChinnyChinChin
