magazine: SOUL, 2020

SOUL is a voice for the unsaid that deconstructs discriminated obsessions with a curious heart by prying into the souls of others. our magazine explores the psychological aspects and rationalises these obsessions into relatability.



background


SOUL expresses these often derogatory themes in a positive light, through short stories, poems, photographs and monoprints.

in this first issue, we pry into the souls of toys and question the obsession with these objects, even after growing up into adults. do you still have that toy with you at home? do you still hug it to sleep at night? are you too old to play with it? can adults play with kids toys? whichever object that popped up in your head, that is the object whose soul you will pry open today.

note: this is a fictional project.


sleeve


the magazine sleeve is a hardcover with white plush fabric lining and little trinkets like googly eyes, embroidery patches, bells, etc.





publication


the publication is japanese stab bound and printed on pearlescent paper to keep the fun and quirky vibe. it includes frenchfold pages where viewers could peek into the full-bled monoprints that convey the intepretation of the poems. view the .pdf to flipthrough below.
