“Design cannot make a boring magazine interesting”
Audrey Fondecave is one of the editors of Too Much, the Japanese magazine that mixes art and architecture to create a poetic understanding of the spaces we inhabit. They call the resulting hybrid “romantic geography”, and each issue is exhaustively researched, drawing upon a wide pool of expert contributors to ensure that the ambitious editorial is as authoritative and provocative as possible.
In this conversation, Audrey speaks about their process for creating the magazine, why it absolutely needs to exist as a physical object, and why she doesn’t want it to last forever. There are lots more conversations with independent magazine makers waiting to be discovered in our archives – take a look in Soundcloud or iTunes or wherever else you get your podcasts, and of course if you follow us while you’re there we’ll be able to deliver next week’s episode to you as soon as it’s ready.
