Video Review: One Day magazine
With a population of 23 million, the tiny island of Taiwan is the 17th densest country in the world. But as those who live in overpopulated cities would know, looking for fellow purveyors of art and culture to connect with — likeminded magazine, film, music, or travel enthusiasts — is like looking for a specific type of M&M in a bargain candy bin.
This feeling, which I get every time I return to my birth place of Taipei, dissolved when I picked up One Day magazine (小日子), which was recommended to me by Nelson Ng of Lost magazine. A monthly art, design and culture magazine capturing everyday life in Taiwan, its stories are told through honest, humour-filled and extremely personal narratives. In this publication, ordinary characters are celebrated, along with everyday, seemingly mundane details that make living in the country such a delight for the editors, contributors, and interviewees.
