DUST MAGAZINE, ISSUE 2

Issue 2 of  DUST magazine is out now. Although the first issue was slightly more powerful, probably by virtue of being the first, the second is just as hard-edged and provoking, with an equally strong focus on youth subculture. It's still beautifully printed on mat paper, and although it's not cheap at £15 it's the kind of magazine you won't throw out. There's also an interesting interview with Peter de Potter, the Belgian artist who has collaborated with Raf Simons on a lot of prints/graphics.
