Meantime magazine is collection of love stories from Singapore’s past. History is revisited through family photographs and personal memories in an attempt to find a place for human intimacy in the “disconnected national narrative” of Singapore’s past.


The publication is organised into three chapters mirroring the stages of love: beauty, uncertainty, and letting go. Tactile elements are incorporated, including a hand-torn cover,  and an exposed spine. There’s also a roll-out screenplay, a pull-out love letter, an illustrated paper boat, pinned photographs and pressed flowers.


In this issue:


  • Can you find love with a single photograph? The couple who run a photo studio specialising in arranged marriages
  • Falling for the girl next door in a kampung, or village
  • A story of forbidden love between a Singaporean woman and a Japanese soldier during wartime, and their child’s struggle for identity
