Illustrative launches ‘Objects – The Journal of applied Arts’

The magazine focuses on the international trends in the Neocraft movement. Following the revival of craft, the magazine deals with the latest news in illustration, graphic design, textile art, ceramics, glass and book art. The initiators, Katja Kleiss and Pascal Johanssen, intended to launch a magazine which presents and discusses international trends in new craft.

The title is programmatic: OBJECTS is interested in the individual artistic craftwork, the object. ‘Unique things remind us of our individuality in a standardised world,’ says Pascal Johanssen, ‘the selection of these ‘objects’ is a statement. While design is made for the masses, craftwork is dedicated to the individual.’ Each issue features academic essays, non-academic interventions of artists and multipaged spreads.
