isnotmagazine

http://www.isnotmagazine.org/Current Issue Issue #1, April 2005 The Love and Lust issue. The raciest grey area we could find for issue #1. What comes to mind? Your wife? Your porn stash? The frequency of your intimate encounters generally? In answer to the Love Is/Not Lust brief, our contributors came up with: ‘examining the ethics of sibling incest’, ‘an economic model for marriage’, ‘interviewing a graphic designer at a porn agency’, ‘reviewing Lost in Translation after 2 bottles of vino and some weed’, ‘an analysis of lust in the OC’, ‘the many connections between cookery and sex’ and ‘Louis Vuitton has broken my heart.’ So here it is: Love and Lust and joyous rambling editorial confusion on the street. And check out the love letters. You may have written one of them.
Is Not Magazine is: on the streets of Melbourne from April 9, 2005; a 1.5m x 2m bill poster; a magazine with no advertisements; a design challenge; a reading experiment; independently published; championing new writers; a canvas awaiting your written comments; the work of five young Melburnians; a bastion of editorial complexity; a grey area; on display at 50 inner city poster sites; appearing at a café, bookstore, laundromat near you; always looking for contributors; available for purchase full size only; cheap at the price; a paper saving device; unique in all the world; for the discerning communal reader.

I went and checked out this poster... it was a pretty good read, especially the love letters. They are private, yet being on the poster they are so public and exposed.
