For many reasons, mass appeal manages to be the best magazine that exists for street / urban culture. It is so thorough and consistent, with every issue … good look and feel (thick color pages, matte cover with a nice intuitive fold), never inundated with poorly chosen advertising or layout design, and the content is always witty / refreshing / on point. Always.
This month’s cover was done by design / illustration duo Morning Breath from Brooklyn, a cool collective I had never heard of. And come to find out … they’ve done some nice projects with Upper Playground in SF, and arguably the best album covers for both Kanye and Talib Kweli. Check out their recently released book too.
