Elephant is a UK-based arts & visual culture magazine. I think it’s called Elephant because it’s a really, really fat magazine, crammed with interesting and in-depth arts-related articles and interviews. But interestingly, despite the size of Elephant, this issue deals a lot with really tiny things, in an extensive section on microworlds in Art.
The other thing featured in this issue of Elephant (and the reason I’m blogging about it) is an article by Ana Ibarra about printing on textiles, where they visit seven designers to talk about how they go about it. There’s work by Monica Romero, Filip Pagowski, Lindsay Alker, Hitomi Kimura, Yuko Uemura (of PataPri), Zoe Beck… and moi!
I’ve never seen Elephant on sale in South Africa, but it’s from the same stable as FRAME and Mark magazines, so perhaps it will make its way into select local bookstores. Keep an eye out for the Elephant in the room.
