  Livraison No.1 Spring/Winter 2005

Livraison (trans. Fr. delivery) is a new magazine from Sweden, somewhat similar in nature to Purple and all its entities. Issue 1 is themed "Private Issue" and textual interviews with varying artists, writers and musicians are presented alongside completely unrelated photo essays. This shift from text to picture creates a third presence in the magazine, whereby the reader tries to figure out how the two relate. The interviews are conducted via email, so the interviewee has more time to think out his or her answers. Issue 1 includes interviews with the likes of the band Adult, Ann-Sofie Back, Rei Kawakubo, Asia Argento, and Bruce LaBruce. Compelling interviews and quirky photography make this a fun read. Especially odd are the photos of people in their skivvies with mutated stuffed toys on their heads as masks. The amusement park meets genetic engineering. Price: $45.50, 168 pgs., no ads.
