You'll Love This Digital Edition If:
- The theme "Identity" intrigues you
- You want to see what Dutch designer's Metahaven cooked up
- You want to hear from Steven Heller, Paul Shaw, Michael Silverberg, Eva Hagberg, and all of the other great design minds you've come to expect in Print Magazine
Each issue this year has seen a new collaboration between Print and a guest art director. One after another, they've reinvigorated the magazine with their own vision. Fittingly, the latest—and last—issue in the project, guest designed and coedited by the Dutch designers Metahaven, is the Identity issue. We expanded our usual focus, moving, as Metahaven writes, "to the fringes of the design world."
The hardcopy version of this issue is available here.
