ARTICLE #3: the four dots are still there

ARTICLE is probably one of the best designed men's fashion magazines around at the moment. Issue three just washed onto the shores of Athenaeum Nieuwscentrum and looks stunning again. The four golden dots on the cover are present since the first issue.

Prominent in this issue are vinyl record labels designed by Vaughan Oliver in the 80's for 4AD records. We spotted The Wolgang Press, Pixies, Cocteau Twins and the Dizzy 12" by Throwing Muses. 
Apart from the impressive design it's full of content as well: Jacky Tsai's illustrations get investigated, there's an article on the history of the suitcase firm Globe-Trotter founded by David Nelken in 1897, an interview with men's fashion designer Christopher Raeburn and an interview with actor Joe Dempsie, properly dressed and photographed in between the words.

Then there are five pictures of smiles by Joe McGorty, everyday objects photographed in an unusual way by Arthur Woodcroft and the issue ends with a short story on modeling, heartbreak and wisdom by Jammy Taylor.
