Finalist for one of our favorite new publications, and certainly one of the best magazines of 2012 is: Alpine Review.
We picked up the hefty issue No.1 on a recent trip to Berlin, and spent most of our flight back devouring it (made all the more enjoyable by Lufthansa's shiny new A380).
From the publisher: The Alpine Review is a bi-annual publication that tracks changes in thought, systems and creations around the world. Assembled by a multidisciplinary team and designed with extreme care, The Alpine Review is a compendium of ideas for a world in transition.
The premiere issue focuses on the theme of ‘Antifragility’, a term coined by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, and through this lens we find connections and crossroads in some unlikely places. Exploring industries and ideas from agriculture to pornography, marketing to axe-making, future business and ownership models to climate change, we’ve found connecting threads that tie them all together.
We were particularly interested in the pieces on Taleb's new philosophy, the "coffeeshopification" of retail, the idea of the magazine as artifact, and the marketing of creative space in the city. A surprising selection of ideas in one place.
