Sampler: Gentle Rain #2

by Grace Wang in August 2017

Gentle Rain is a city magazine centred on Hamburg, Germany. Created by Die Brueder, the editorial and design office who also run the independent magazine festival Indiecon, it’s a great model of contemporary design in independent publishing today.

From the insightful articles to the inventive graphic design, this is a journal for anyone who has ever wanted to visit Hamburg, or wanted to learn something new about hidden corners of the metropolis. Have a look at some of the spreads and content below, and head over to Sampler to order your copy for free shipping.


In this issue:

— Doing tequila shots with the best barkeeper in the city
— Partying with space sergeants underneath a fish market
— The Wild East of Hamburg, and its complicated building plans
— A recent tenant of the Beatles’ old apartment report on what remains of the legend
— And photographer Frederike Wetzels visually conjured the spirit of those times in the attic flat
