B.L.A.D. Issue nr. 9 - The Complete Guide to Mushrooms
Mushrooms are among the mysterious plants on earth, therefore we thought it would be necessary to make a complete guide to mushrooms. This issue contains beautiful illustrations combined with good to know facts about mushrooms, and for the culinaric reader we even added some nice and delicious receipes. Many would maybe consider this issue of BLAD as a little far-fetched guide to the world of mushrooms. But remember nothing is too far out after you have tasted some nice and trippy mushrooms. 300 copies.
What is B.L.A.D.? Literally “blad” is the Norwegian word for “leaf”, and a “leaf” is a magazine, therefore B.L.A.D. must be a magazine, with a “blad” on the cover, a “blad” inside the packaging, and across its many internal “blads” there have been featured a wide range of illustrators and topics, and once even nothing at all.
The concept is simple; provide an artist or a topic with a surface that fits in your pocket, lovingly offset-printed in a secret basement and spread it around to anyone who would like to have a look inside. Since its humble beginnings in 2009 the zine has spread across the world and reached a double-digit number of issues, bringing its weird and wonderful content, created by the likes of Vilunki 3000, Ian Stevenson, Rat Salad, Hungry Radke and more, to far-flung corners of the world, and now even beyond, thanks to a new distribution deal with Motto! Berlin.
