It might have become harder to make money in print media, but that hasn’t stopped good creative and content flowing from independent publishers, the type of publisher who with their low overheads have thrived in this modern era of media. The latest to launch is MATTER. 200 pages and retailing at £8.00, the first issue includes Google’s Creative Director of Data Arts, Aaron Koblin, on digital art. Iconic fashion designer Rick Owens presents an Anthology Of Colour. Editor Jennifer Higgie on twenty years of Frieze magazine. Art & The Automobile, featuring the American artists Richard Prince and Erwin Wurm. Tate Exhibitions Curator Tanya Barson on the Lyon Biennale. Celebrated conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner, shot by NY underground photographer Ari Marcopolous. Photographer – and former director of Dior Homme – Hedi Slimane’s best images of women.
