The Singapore based team behind Underscore magazine have just released the 4th edition of their wonderful magazine, entitled the Flight issue. For those who aren’t familiar with it, Underscore’s ethos, in their own words is ‘to underline/highlight simple values that are important but neglected in our everyday lives.’ Clearly, Underscore has gone down the path favouring quality over quantity. The love and hard work that is poured into each issue is evident from the moment it is picked up through to the turning over of the last page. Each issue really is a collectors’ item.
The Flight issue (the previous issue was the Fight issue) features a front cover designed by Design/Art supremo Jaime Hayon. As the title of suggests, it explores all aspects of flight, from NASA missions to slack lining (think base jumping) through to birds’ nests and circus acrobats. I loved the last page – a wonderful DIY cardboard aeroplane cut out, also designed by Jaime Hayon. Check out a flick through of mag in the video below, as well as my fumbling attempts to construct the very cool aeroplane.
