The geniuses over at JOSHUA’s Magazine, the slickest men’s print magazine on the planet right now, have released their highly anticipated Issue FOUR. Based on the duality of the expression SO REAL, Issue FOUR references organic, natural matter, brands with history, authentic products that present themselves with natural honesty, contrasted with the high definition, ultra clear, modern clean lined brands that dominate physical space.
The JOSHUA’s team traveled to Japan to interview Masamichi Katayama (founder of Wonderwall), to AESOP’s new Kyoto store and visited CORE JEWELS to see their new ONE range, combining luxury jewellery with NFC technology.
Crossing the varying topics within men’s lifestyle, their automative angle features Aston Martin Rapide S a fashion interview with the Saturdays NYC founding partners Colin Tunstall, Morgan Collett, and Josh Rosen. FOUR includes other unique finds, such as the limited edition Marc Newson x Beretta 486 rifle, Bang & Olfusen’s new BeoSound Moment as well as editorials featuring Thom Browme, Moncler Gamme Bleu, Dunhill, Giorgio Armani etc.
In keeping with previous editions the Issue FOUR Special Edition Back cover is illustrated by visual artist Nas Abraham (http://nasabraham.com) interpreting the FOUR theme of SO REAL:
“For Issue FOUR, I wanted to design a back cover that related to the content of the issue. I chose to hand draw four crystal formations as I felt they embodied the themes of beauty, nature, also possessing a strong classical element to it, contrasted against my art style of digitally stretched pixels.” — NAS ABRAHAM, Visual Artist
