I am not sure exactly when it happened (maybe a year ago?) but one day this magazine appeared on my coffee table that had eccentric and fascinating artwork ingrained on the cover. It had peaked my interest enough to fan through it quickly and see just what this was all about. I stopped the pages from flying and paused on a page that made my jaw drop. I turned another page and another and another and my jaw never closed. Then I decided to go back to the beginning of the magazine and zip through it page by page, taking my time to examine and read the articles that accompanied the pictures. Only the “zipping” turned into about an hour or so of reading. I couldn’t believe some of the amazing work that I was holding in my hand. I felt like I had found something that the word “cool” or “amazing” could not do full justice to. I no longer needed to go searching the interwebz, it was right here all in one place, collected for me and my viewing pleasure.
Hi-Fructose Magazine covers:
The latest volume 13 blew my mind so I knew it was time I talked about it and get the word out. What’s great about this magazine is that I don’t always find everything in it that fits my taste but I can still appreciate it as art. I know I can’t do it justice so you’re just gonna need to see it for yourself to understand what I mean. You can order it from the website or grab it a your local bookstore. Either way, this is a must read to add to your list.
Here are a few covers from their previous issues…
It comes out quarterly and each issue is only $7. Check out the website for info on artists, art shows, past issues and of course the art world as seen under the counter culture.
