‘The Curiosity Shoppe has recently teamed up with artists, Luke Bartels and Jeff Canham, to offer a neighborhood of wooden bird houses. This particular neighborhood is on the seedy part of town of course, and includes a bail bond office, a foreclosed home, a strip club, a liquor store and a pawn shop. These bird houses measure only 5-7” square and vary in height to about 11” tall.’
The first issue of the 48 Hour Magazine has now been made and is available to buy at MagCloud. It can be bought here.
The theme for the first issue (issue Zero) was ‘Hustle’. You can flick through previews of the pages over at the MagCloud page. It looks like there’s a really eclectic mixture of content to go through. I’m unsure as to whether or not a more stylised focus would be more beneficial for the publication, but then again that somewhat takes away the ‘anyone and everyone can be involved’ approach that they’re advertising.
