While we’re on the subject of 1991

I thought it might be interesting to take a look at the limited edition art book/fashion magazine Visionaire whose first issue came out that year. The theme was spring and its editors couldn’t afford to bind it so they assembled all 1000 copies by hand and sold each for ten bucks.

Now, issue 56 is out. Its theme: Solar. Its collaborator: Calvin Klein Collection. Its effect: magic. When the book is placed in direct sunlight, works by artists like Richard Phillips (above) mysteriously transform from black and white into colour.

Which is kind of like a sophisto-twist on the hypercolor  t-shirts I wanted so bad (but never got) way back in 1991.
