Desire is in the cracks of everything. 
Resist the pull of wanting, I dare you to try. 


Desire is the wonderful in between of a thing. The wanting. The waiting. The needing. The longing and the dreaming. When the object of your desire is obtained, the emotion slips out of reach and evaporates back into the ether. Consider the printed form of DESIRE, physically wanted things captured on a page in ink but this only propels the reader forward on a deeper journey. There are no full stops in this grand tour just a tantalizing lifting of the veil for a singular second and on you go, deeper into the in-between of wanting and having.

Be seduced by the fluorescent colors that hum on the page to create a paper light box. Discover the contents of a sealed envelope, distinctive inserts and a booklet that is literally sewn into the issue. Handcrafted and created using the finest paper stock and highest quality printing techniques, there is nothing disposable about this magazine. It is to be cherished.
