It seems highly inadequate to call Plethora merely a "magazine". The rich curation of articles and imagery by Peter Steffenson, and his slew of masterful artists, is a feast for any art and literary lover. Here is a glimpse inside the newest issue.
Plethora Magazine is an independent, biannual publication founded in Copenhagen which challenges the bounds of the conventional magazine format — conceptually
as well as physically (70x50cm).
More akin to a curated selection of fine art prints the magazine serves up a novel and thought-provoking take on the approach to printed matter which is both infinitely slower than your average glossy mag and excessive enough in format to
seriously put the size of any coffee table to the test.
Skillfully printed by the monks of a Hindu temple, Plethora Magazine pays homage to the unique qualities of artisanal printing tradition and offers a purist vision for the future expression of the printed magazine - along with a quiet
ode to all things left behind by fast track digitization.
No noise, no ads and no logos, just 52 pages of
poster-size visual indulgence and tales from the
life less ordinary presented in a careful blend of
quirky archive material, wondrous art prints
and contemporary artist features.
