Magpile’s Featured Magazine this week is Dank, a skate magazine from Norway, which has just started publishing fully in English. Magpile user, Barry Duffin, explains how Dank sets itself apart from the typical skate mag:


  “It is a skateboard magazine in its essence, but like the lives of the people involved, it is not exclusively about skateboarding. Applying brilliant design and photography to deliver consistently original and relevant content, Dank feels closer to high end lifestyle publications, similar to Apartmento and Inventory, rather than a zine punched out by skaters with no care.”

Elsie Magazine

After watching Steve Watson of Stack review this last night on Vimeo as this week’s feature, I knew it looked special. 

The magazine is the work of one man, Les Jones, and it contains a visual cornucopia of stuff that inspires, intrigues, and excites him. Just 1000 copies of issue are printed, with issue #2 having 100 different covers for you to chose from! Treats abound too … one in every 25 copies contain a free art print.

Elsie has been called “adorable from cover to cover” and I can’t wait to receive my copy. 

To My Future Self (by Jiani Lu)

A fantastic collection of hand bound booklets narrating three defining aspects of Jiani Lu's life. 

Made from a compilation of excerpts and quotes from personal journal entries, life lessons, tweets, bucket lists, and other pieces collected over her life, the project reveals early childhood up to recent travel experiences.
