The two covers of Fool magazine #7, published in a double version: the cover with Bo Songvisava of Bo.lan in Bangkok and the one with Aaron Turner of Igni, Australia. Published in Sweden, written in English, you can order it online for 23.59 euros (limited edition, 3,000 copies)
The seventh issue of one of the most interesting editorial projects worldwide was out a few weeks ago. It’s called Fool magazine and it’s published in English by a couple of Swedish authors from Malmö, Lotta and Per-Anders Jorgensen, respectively art director and photographer.
Watchful readers perhaps remember Fool#4, entirely dedicated to Italy, with the brigade of Osteria Francescana in Modena portrayed in the cover as if it were a scene from Federico Fellini’s "8 ½". Sometime before, after receiving the title of “Best gourmet magazine in the world” from the Gourmand Awards, Per-Anders presented the editorial project on our website.
Issue number 7 lives up to the expectations. The title is “The Political Issue”. The choice of fil rouge is clearly explained in the introduction: «Politics in food and gastronomy is a huge subject, with news about climate chamge, fishing quotas, bee colony collapse, plastic bans, food safety, land grabs and food scams filling the media every day».
