Stack at home: Pfeil, June 2020

by Kitty Drake in June 2020

In June we delivered Pfeil, which is so unusually tall we had to print a special batch of extra-large envelopes to accommodate it. Describing itself as a magazine-shaped exhibition — “each page… represents the floor, walls, or ceiling which together create an imagined room displaying a printed exhibition” — Pfeil is part literary journal, part cultural critique, part conceptual artwork. The unifying theme that runs through everything in this issue is ‘Economy’, with contributors blending documentary photography, drama and poetry to respond to the theme.

The photographs subscribers sent in with their copies were beautiful. We’ve rounded up some of our favourites, below. Scroll right to the bottom to see our Stack subscriber of the month.

Dutch subscriber Piet van Zoen got his Stack delivery + a Unicorn picture book. Good post day.


4. Beguiling

Nice close-up of Pfeil’s rather abstract cover star.

3. Watermelon

Zooming in on Pfeil’s back cover star, a watermelon, which is interestingly more arresting than its front.

2. Ottolenghi

1. Tiny wonders

We love this beautiful picture of Pfeil, taken by a very arty wall, in the shadow of a very arty pot plant. Stack t shirt on its way to you, Dospina!
