Beautiful/Decay Relaunch


From their start 10 years ago when they hand photocopied an all black-and-white magazine, Beautiful/Decay has come a long way. Never one to rest on old paradigms, the art-filled 'zine is reinventing themselves by narrowing down the production to 1500 limited-edition copies while simultaneously doubling the size of each issue.

The cover of the first revived issue will feature artwork by Kyle Thomas, who is personally hand-drawing every single cover, providing each copy a one-of-a-kind value. Always focused on being a resource tool for artists and designers, the distinct cover is only one reason to collect the magazine.


The 164-page expanded format version, launching 1 July 2009, will feature even greater in-depth articles and include inserts, stickers, posters and original artwork. Subscribe ($40) now to ensure you receive one of the remaining 200 copies.
