Plain Paper - Surface (issue 1)
This is the first issue of ‘Plain Paper’, an English-language magazine dedicated to a multifaceted exploration of paper, launched and jointly produced by Amsterdam-based paper enthusiasts and graphic designers Esther Krop and Philip Stroomberg. Its theme is “surface”, a tribute to the tangible experience of paper, which is elaborated upon through the varied work of six contributors: Stephan Keppel, Barbarber, Vincent Bijlo, Underware, Cindy Moorman, and Ruth van Beek. Interestingly, numerous texts throughout the magazine are covered by scratch-off logos or images, which the reader must deface in order to read the words underneath.
