Issue #3 continues the slow journey downwards through the substrates of human culture and the natural realm - as always in search of primordial forms and a still deeper code…
Plethora Magazine is an independent, biannual publication founded in Copenhagen which challenges the bounds of the conventional magazine format — conceptually as well as physically (70x50cm).
More akin to a curated selection of fine art prints the magazine serves up a novel and thought-provoking take on the approach to printed matter which is both infinitely slower than your average glossy mag and excessive enough in format to seriously put the size of any coffee table to the test.
Skillfully printed by the monks of a Hindu temple, Plethora Magazine pays homage to the unique qualities of artisanal printing tradition and offers a purist vision for the future expression of the printed magazine - along with a quiet ode to all things left behind by fast track digitization.
No noise, no ads and no logos, just 52 pages of poster-size visual indulgence and tales from the life less ordinary presented in a careful blend of quirky archive material, wondrous art prints and contemporary artist features.
