Boneless | Bloom Publishing

Boneless is the ninth title from Melbourne-based publishing house Bloom, released in celebration of their second birthday. The publication features an 8fps image sequence taken by Lloyd Stubber of Jay Dymock’s infamous boneless 360. During the summer of 2008, a famous Perth skate spot had yet another NBD (never been done) ticked off its list, a boneless 360 by Jay Dymock. Although maybe second nature to him, it went down in history for all that witnessed. Still to this day the video footage has never surfaced, whether it was lost or taped over – or maybe not even recording – still remains a mystery. This 462 page, perfect bound, digitally printed, 6″ x 9″ flip-book is released in a signed edition of 25. Feature

No Substance Magazine

No Substance Magazine

One of the best things that has flown into our letterbox this month is ‘No Substance’, an indie magazine with a focus on fashion, photography, and culture. The content inside is simplistic. The publication is full of photographs taken by a community of upcoming talents; the only thing missing must be text. This 180-page magazine recycles the same idea over and over, imploring readers to delve deep into the lives lived outside the ordinary. No Substance might not have a paper varnish applied to its pages like other photography publications and not everyone agrees that imperfection is a sign of perfection, but to me, this is a publication completed with perfectly portioned ingredients.

Spin: 360°

Spin: 360°

As the design world is undergoing immense transformation and continually adapting to digital alteration and aesthetic trends, it’s not surprising to see everybody try to evolve in order to survive today’s constantly changing market. It’s true that good work is a core part of what makes a successful business but the attitudes of people who run it also play just as big of a role. London’s leading design studio Spin was born out of passion of the two founders Tony Brook and Patricia Finegan. Now you may be wondering what makes Spin so distinctive in its vision. I guess the answers can be found here in their new 520-page monograph that offers a close-up look at every aspect of Spin’s practice. Feature

I don’t think it’s too much to say that Offways is a testament to the challenge of global capitalism. And it doesn’t surprise me that all copies of the magazine sold out quickly. Feature
