Devoted to adventure, expeditions and exploration
Sidetracked has always been rooted in inspirational journeys. We were born from the passion of wanting to tell the stories of those who put themselves out there, setting aside fear and doubt in order to experience the breathtaking, the awe-inspiring and the magical.
Everything about our magazine is intended to present those narratives in the most compelling and visually stunning way possible. Words and images portraying the inspirational truth of the experience. It’s more than a magazine – it’s about being immersed in the journey of those with captivating stories to tell. The Sidetracked Journal is released three times each year and brings together some of the finest stories of exploration and adventure. From extremes of human endurance to both cultural and emotional discovery, we present endeavours from a global group of adventurers, writers and photographers all looking to shatter boundaries.

Issue 3 of IMPORTANT MAGAZINE is exploring the theme of VANITY. As a subject it not only plays to elegance and subtlety with intellectual flair but also individual signatures and elements of surprise. This issue contains an exposé of how we all are apt to create a shell identity on the way to our true selves and the shedding of all other fake IDs. Poetry that grasps the sky and the edge of a letter, feelings that overwhelm words. How do we as humans play with masquerades, movement, comparison, identification arranged as graphic intensity and sensory investigations. Photography and scenarios travel beyond 'mere' vanity to the realm of excellence and revelation. Skin texture and adornments being points to the sublime. All this warped and wefted as images and texts, ancient and modern.
We are so happy that summer is finally here and we can inspire you once again with a new edition of Imagicasa magazine. The storm has subsided and has made way for sun, warmth and cheerfulness. We are going to enjoy it with a fresh Corona beer in our hands!
Over the past few months we have continued to work hard on our online platform to offer our readers a moment of relaxation during the challenging period – which we can now hopefully leave behind us – and to let them dream away at beautiful images, surprising stories and unique projects. Our Instagram page now has well over 20,000 followers, a very welcoming confirmation that the work we do is appreciated and that we can continue to do what we enjoy doing. We’ve also added a lot of exclusive decorations and furniture to our webshop, so be sure to take a look if you want to give your own interior a stylish update.
This summer issue has come with some delay, because we wanted to make sure we could offer you another amazing edition. If we can say so ourselves, we very much succeeded in this and we are therefore proud to present to you projects by OOAA Arquitectura, Fabrice Juan, Banda Property, Gori & Yoon and our compatriot Nicolas Schuybroek, among others. As usual, we also went back into design history to introduce to you some of the top designers of the 20th century (Gio Ponti, Joe Colombo, Pierre Paulin) whose iconic creations certainly don’t look out of place in today’s interiors.
Art is also a vital subject in any edition and we hope that the works of André Bogaert, Bram Demunter, Tilde Grynnerup and Pia Maria Raeder will charm you as much as they did us. To get even more into summery atmospheres, we bring you along on a visit to the unique Hotel Lou Pinet in Saint-Tropez, designed by Charles Zana, we present no less than two stylish yachts and we take a look at a beautiful project in Valencia decorated by our partner ‘t Huis van Oordeghem.
Enjoy this special collection of stories and enjoy the summer!

Ever since its founding in 1967, it has earned a place as the most authoritative men’s fashion magazine in the world, a privileged partner for Italian designer brands, a scout of groundbreaking photographers, trendsetting dressers and fashion revolutions. After its 50th anniversary L’Uomo Vogue has been relaunched as a bilingual English-Italian quarterly with a new supersized format, a very modern design and four sections. L’Uomo has a ldigital presence within Vogue.it and its own social presence, and also organises a series of live events.
Now in its fourteenth issue, INVENTARIO continues to tell the story of the culture of design, combining design, art and architecture in an open and interdisciplinary dialogue. The cover of this new issue is dedicated to the fan: an extension of the hand and an object with a precise function, but at the same time an instrument of seduction that moves as if in a dance. Showing and hiding, telling endless stories from one gesture, fans move not only air but also attention. In the pages of INVENTARIO, the stream of thoughts, objects and images unfolds in the usual columns. Beppe Finessi explores the multiple possibilities of meaning that space can assume, between emptiness and boundaries, in “Bounces”, while in “Other Gazes” Roberta Valtorta explores Robert Frank and his photography, in which everything is fragmented and in movement. In “Temporalia”, Chiara Fauda Pichet focuses on overcoming fractures and on the ways in which various designers have interpreted this idea, with its strong symbolic value. The reflection on the theme of fractures – highlighted or recomposed, but nevertheless transformed – continues in “Species of Spaces”, where Matteo Pirola and Gianni Faraci describe the “Grande Cretto” of Gibellina by Alberto Burri, from design to realisation. For “Absolutes”, Andrea Anastasio chooses Mona Hatoum and her “Map”, an atlas of the world made of glass beads that inspires a reflection on freedom and power, while Paolo Bocchiproposes “Tutto Cambia”, a carpet by Bruno Munari with combinations of coloured shapes and threads left free to move, to create infinite variations in the design of the carpet. Lorenzo Damiani is interviewed by Marco Romanelli in “New Masters”, while guitars are at the centre of Giulio Iacchetti’s “Short Notes”, which explores twelve iconic variations of the musical instrument with texts and drawings. Corrado Levi presents, through his “Why”, Franco Albini’s “Veliero” bookcase, created in 1940, while Maria Elisa Cecchi dedicates “Normal Wonders” to Amalia Pica and her sculptures from the “Catachresis” series: assemblages in the ironic spirit of the ready-made, in search of new identities and balances. Manolo De Giorgi’s column “Hues”, which was launched in the last issue, continues this time with green and a selection of works, objects and spaces that are characterised by this colour.
Beppe Finessi (1966) is an architect, critic, researcher and teacher. He curates and edits exhibitions and publications that deal with the great masters of Italian design as well as with the new names on the international scene. He has designed and edited “Inventario. Everything is a Project” since 2010.
Colour is science, psychology, and communication, but in art and design it is also about perception and choice. Colour is fun, packed with emotion, and is personal, but it can also become dangerously political. In DAMN°76 we explore some of the most colourful myths and realities – from naked cowboys riding pink unicorns to the corrupt power of the American greenback – and get new insights into how the use of colour feeds and challenges our perceptions. We look at the latest exhibitions and projects and talk to some of the artists and designers whose work dares us to recalibrate our thinking on the politics of colour – especially given the huge changes the digital revolution has introduced.
Toothache issue seven takes us to New York, Portland, San Francisco, and across the internet to many other parts of the country and world. Get inspired during these uncertain times, and also hear about chef's thoughts throughout this crisis. This heavy-weight magazine is filled with thick uncoated pages perfect for your coffee table, bookshelf, or kitchen. A magazine made entirely by chefs; this issue continues to offer the closest and most personal look into award-winning chefs.
This issue includes: Vince Nguyen - Berlu • Fabian von Hauske & Jeremiah Stone - Contra • Peter Cho - Han Oak • Chris Cosentino - Cockscomb • Eunji Lee - Jungsik • Susanna Yoon - Stick With Me Sweets • Nathaniel Reid - Nathaniel Reid Bakery • Joanna Artieda • Ramon Morato - Cacao Barry Lab
This issue also includes a feature about the future of the restaurant industry, where Toothache creator Nick Muncy talks with Naomi Pomeroy, Daniel Patterson, Nelson German, and Gavin Kaysen.
Toothache 07 is a 128-page perfect-bound publication.
Toothache is a small self-published magazine conceived after dinner services with industry friends, primarily during last call at dive bars. Often times, food media is produced by people who do not live and breath kitchen life. Usually, it’s comprised of lengthy articles, a few pictures and a recipe in cups and tablespoons. Which makes sense, because they’re generally not writing for us, but instead writing for home cooks or “foodies”. This magazine’s goal, however, is to give ourselves a little bit of the media power back; to produce a magazine that a chef or cook would actually want to read. We essentially made this a collaborative project and gave chefs blank pages. We then let them add whatever images, recipes, and writing that they wanted.
Like many of our readers, we’ve been gradually adjusting to these unprecedented times of pandemic and protest. Through hard work and commitment from all involved, this issue has become a time capsule of artists working during (and reflecting on) lockdown.
One project that was well and truly borne out of this strange time in history is the brilliant Offcut Project – an ingenious idea by Suki from The Print Block, who created editions with artists using her paper offcuts and has raised funds for important charities in the process. Kyle Hawley and her all-female team at Letterpress PLAY also make the most of their materials by ensuring all of their products have multiple uses – what gets cut, gets kept. Proof that when things change, we change with them and often the ideas that bloom are just as creative as ever.
The slower pace of things and spending more time in your own company can sometimes feel daunting, however printmakers are in a unique position to reflect these emotions in their art. The print community has also come together offering its support to the Black Lives Matter movement – be it through the free use of Riso printing or placard making at letterpress workshops. Print has always found itself a key means of mass communication, even in a more digital age. US printmaker Jamaal Barber discusses with Tanekeya Word the complexities of black as a colour and Black as a culture and how he infuses his work with impact and authenticity.
Issue 12 featured artists/studios:
Peter Allen • Armchair Hero • Helen Arthur • Jamaal Barber • Veta Gorner • Alexandra Hedberg • Alice Irwin • Letterpress PLAY • Luddite Press • Krista Mezzadri • Laura Peturson • The Print Block • Marina Ruiz • Barbara Sanders • Sonofafox • Nelly Trubnikova-Omelchenko • Type Tom • Jeremy Wat
Format: 100 page perfect bound publication, printed by Park Communications on Edixion Offset paper. (including 2 page insert with art print by Type Tom printed on GF Smith 135gsm Colorplan Citrine stock.)

Italian food pioneers enchanted us with passion, fed us hope and humility, and said, “Be here now, forget schedules, let life dictate pace.” They showed us their grounded carpe diem spirit—how to live in the moment, slow, steady. In return we pushed our appointments, extended rentals, and rested our heads on hardwood floor, fully present.
ITALIAN VARIETY WITHOUT LIMIT
Italy has found a way forward by reaching into history and pulling out techniques that are tried and true. It’s a path rooted in community and hospitality, closely tied to the land, giving back as much as it takes. A path blazed with Italian bravery. Bravery that speaks plainly, saying “We shall not be tamed by modern problems.”
INSIDE THIS ISSUE OF SALT & WONDER
You’ll explore hidden castles, gardens, and rooftop terraces. You’ll find Italy’s new wave of slow-baking, its modern artisans, its Etruscan history, and the future of food systems. You’ll meet a mad scientist who ferments everything and a woman who bakes family tradition into her bread. You’ll feel the soil with Italy’s first organic rice farmer and raise a glass to fresh drinking styles at rebel-friendly bars. Finally, you’ll discover the magic of Torino, where off-the-map authenticity will make you fall in love.

Two traveling brothers who promote local ingredients with Italian-Asian fusion at their restaurant atop an ancient seaside castle.

This issue is a gateway between East and West; a mix of influences and cultures, textiles and objects, grand architectures and simple yet charming interiors from the masterly Istanbul Portfolio by Antonio Monfreda, and the beautiful imperfection of form and decor of the Denizli mosques by Miguel Flores-Vianna. Other stories include a hidden gem in Paris photographed by Mark Luscombe-White, a beautiful house in Beirut captured by Simon Upton and an extensive portfolio by Guido Taroni on Piero Portaluppi, one of those rare examples of an architect-designer's synthesis of great modernist design and decorative details recalling Baroque Italy.
Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee a specific cover at time of order.
Cabana explores the close relationship each person has with interiors, not only grand rooms but the small detail in the corner that make a room feel unique yet personal. Each issue will take you on a journey of obsessive collecting, colors, textiles and objets d'art brought to life through vivid photography. Welcome to the world of Cabana.
See The ACT Creative Studios present the second issue of ACT, published under the title “WARDA AL HANI”
The title of this issue is WARDA AL HANI (Madame Rose Hani - Part Two ) which is one of Gibran Khalil Gibran’s novels where he tells the story of a young woman who is married to a rich man, but she feels imprisoned. One day she finds the light inside the darkness in a young man and decides to leave her husband to witness love and modesty with this young person. Society judged her. Her powerful ex-husband made use of his power to put her reputation to question. but she didn’t really care because she knows everyone’s story and decided to have her own. She decides to live for love.
How many Wardas have you seen? Being judged for their life choices and their decisions. How many men used their powerful voice and social positions to put the reputation of the women that they love (who didn’t share the same interest) in question. How many persons are like Gibran, take the time to actually seek the truth and decide what is the right thing to do? We chose this novel by Gibran as the title of our second issue because it best describes how society objectifies woman for their actions.
A hint of what to come in this issue; So many women sharing the same and different point of views, stories about experiences they face as women, stories about daily battles and a society that keeps on reminding them that they need to do more. Not one day do they feel any kind of freedom to just be, and when they do, they are put to question again. Stories of women. A society that objectifies women.
ACT (Art, Culture and Talent) is a visual ART magazine, with a platform for expression. A place to create, communicate and inspire. It is a journey, a trip for your mind and an escape from your daily problems. A play with all the elements; a full official ACT. The process we went through to create this magazine is the same we go through when writing a movie: the research and the longing for expression.
ACT creates a tribe so you can belong; it can be your comfort place and escape. It presents articles that express and represent each one of the contributors in their own words.
The subjects that ACT treats in every issue, are related to so many factors from social situations and observation, to politics, economy and travel; keeping in mind that art is at the center of everything; It is an inclusive project of all forms of visual expression.
ACT is the result of long years of cinema and filmmaking studies, art direction projects and a career of fashion and styling.
Artists cannot be framed into only one category or lifestyle. Once an artist, always an artist. A real one who breathes art day and night. One who sees it in every aspect of daily life where inspiration is just everywhere, and if you are really trained and your brain is used to seeing it, you will.
It is a long project of commitment, persistence and a process of observation. A project of an outsider trying to fit in, but fighting the process with art. After long observation and research came the necessity to create a new art magazine. Reading may have been neglected for some time, and it has become a forgotten activity we used to enjoy and practice back in the day.
So, we made sure our visual, with all its artistry and creativity, is as important as the words and articles we included. One of the very amusing activity we used to enjoy was coloring, so we added a couple of pages for you to reconnect with yourself and re-center your mind.
Sometimes literature and poems can take you to places with one key to access: your imagination. It was IMPORTANT to add this extra level of inspiration, so you can create and imagine it yourself.
Take some time off your phone screens, because nothing can be compared to the smell of books. Disconnect from your phones and re-connect with yourself and get inspired.
The lights go off, a spotlight unveils the curtains, they announce:
“Please turn off your phones and enjoy the act”
People applause, the curtains open revealing the stage covered with decorative elements. The orchestra plays music and you are taken by the violin.
You begin to see the ACT as the characters reveal the truth behind their masks.

Even at issue number 21 of zweikommasieben, it remains challenging to identify a common theme among the different contributions gathered in a magazine. What is the “thing” to which we have dedicated ourselves issue after issue?
Over the years, it has become clear that the “thing” that continues to captivate us is in flux, as are its possible definitions. Various contributions to the current issue of this magazine attest to this permanent development, too. And whatever our “thing” might be called or actually might be, the following has become clearer in the recent past: the boundaries separating different artistic practices have been dissolving more and more. Also this second assertion seems to be present again in the interviews and texts present in zweikommasieben #21.
The contributions in the current issue hint a third unifying characteristic of our “thing”: in the context of the developments and the cross-disciplinary thinking, music does not figure largely anymore. More often than not, it is a starting point and stimulus for further thinking rather than anything else. This assertion might seem contradictory coming from a magazine that claims to be devoted to the documentation of contemporary music and sounds. Yet, it does not seem to be problematic for the artists appearing. It no longer seems necessary to have an answer to the question, what function music fulfils within our “thing.” Or what else it might be about. Rather, the nature of our “thing” reveals itself in the work and the talk—and, so we hope, in the act of reading.
zweikommasieben is a Swiss magazine that has been devoted to the documentation of contemporary music and sounds since the summer of 2011. The magazine features artist interviews, essays and columns as well as photography, illustration and graphics. In addition, zweikommasieben organizes concerts, parties, club nights, matinees, raves and other fun events in various cities.

The different sections allow the exploration and presentation of a wide range of artistic practices and are the facets of a single and organic research project, conducted through the pages of the magazine and also developed within the other activities of CURA. platform.

Little White Lies was established in 2005 as a bi-monthly print magazine committed to championing great movies and the talented people who make them.

A journal about creating a style of life with passion. We want to present stories about people who make their ideas into tangible, long-lasting reality – people that make things happen.

Above all, Rhineland-Palatinate stands out for its wine with 65 percent of German wine being produced there. But what about design? Following the Special Issues of Babylon (2013), Marrakech (2016), and Rwanda (2019), we were curious to find out more about our Heimat Germany and highlight regional differences.
The first destination of our journey took us right across the Rhine, to Rhineland-Palatinate. In its state capital Mainz, Johannes Gutenberg invented letterpress printing and delivered the first printed Bible in 1456, and probably drank a pint of wine on it. The state was formerly founded from the French occupation zone after a referendum on the state constitution on May 18th, 1947, two years before the founding of the Federal Republic of Germany. The black, red, and gold of the flag of the Hambach Festival, the first democratic demonstration, are still the colors of the Federal Republic of Germany today.
The state has a long tradition of arts and craftsmanship, supported and kept alive by a strong middle-class as well as strong regional institutions and cultural drivers. Awards such as the State Prize for Arts and Crafts promote, amongst others, outstanding gem and jewelry designers, ceramists, silversmiths, carpenters, barrel makers, and textile designers of the region.
With the help of descom—Designforum Rhineland-Palatinate we sourced designers, photographers, illustrators and makers—all people who love their region and are passionate about what they do. So yes, beyond beautiful landscapes with vineyards, rivers, forests, and castles, Rhineland-Palatinate is a shining example of design in Germany, that moves with time while sticking to its roots.

SKATEISM Issue 5 is entitled “ELSEWHERE”, is an exploration of diaspora, travel, movement and the lesser covered communities in skateboarding.
Notes from the publisher:
We – skateboarders, yes; but people, generally – move. In our bodies, we move. And in our minds too. Estrangement, exile, exploration – all these happen in the psyche, with equally constructive and destructive results, as in physicality. In all our differences, we have this common thread. So while we can congratulate ourselves, as skateboarders, for having this big wooden passport which, though it may be one of the most irritating things to bring on a plane, affords us instant access to a community of similarly inclined street-dwelling weirdos; we must also remember that those of us who are lucky enough to use it to its full advantage, also have the power to reach out to our siblings who do not. In the past decade, skateboarding has been increasingly referred to as a “tool for social change” – and if this is true, then we all have a choice to make whenever we step onto our boards. The days of “skate and destroy” are over, my friends. What’s next? Where will you go? What will you do with this tool? What risks will you take? What might you learn about yourself?
