What we save, saves us

A tactile object containing stories about creation.

Thisispaper came to life online almost two years ago to showcase design of exceptional quality as seen through our purposefully subjective eye. Since its inception its form resembled a moodboard, in that it relied much more heavily on image than on text.

With time we began to feel the need not only to tell longer stories, but also to give these stories a tangible form – so that they are physically by our side, waiting to be revisited, rethought and reconnected with anytime. Some content vanishes in the abyss of the Internet but thrives in print. The immediacy of webbrowsing allows for absorbing inspiring bits and pieces in large quantities but doesn’t necessarily foster careful examination or rereading. In this book we let the designers speak for themselves, asking them questions aimed at the underside of the finished product. Their generous answers unveil the details of how and why they design.

A propos de ce numéro

Issue Two is about stepping into the world of unique individuals, contemporary or historical, in a lot of different ways: quite literally by visiting their studios, or methaporically by exploring them through their work. Whatever the way, we were seeking sincerity, passion and thoughtfulness, and we found them. More than in the Inaugural Issue, in Issue Two we focused on shedding light on the work of the Polish artists who deserve international recogniction.

Faustine Steinmetz and 6a Architects invite us into their studios and speak at length about their creative process. The Italian duo Studiopepe talks about how they manage to stick to their distinctive, surrealist style while working on various commercial projects. Two very different Polish photographers are portrayed: Bownik, a contemporary photographer with a mysterious aura and a flair for scientific experiments, and Zofia Rydet, who took a unique approach to photographing children in post-war Poland. We also visit the modernist villa of Bohdan Lachert, one of the most prominent Polish pre-war architects, in Warsaw's Saska Kepa.

What is special about Issue Two is the way we, the Thisispaper studio, share our thoughts on living a healthy and fullfiling life, with our Guide to Everyday Excercise and an introductory course of culturing your own Good Bacteria.

Thisispaper Magazine Issue Two is a limited edition of 2000 numbered copies. The publication is advert-free and perfect bound.
