When Acne Paper was relaunched last year, it arrived as a hybrid between a book and a magazine, reimagined in a new format and bold design direction: expanding to 500 pages. The new issue of Acne Paper has taken the idea of a hybrid one step further. Part biography, part novel, part cultural art journal, part fashion magazine, this experimental and interdisciplinary issue is imagined around the story of Atticus: a fictional personality in the art world who will celebrate his one hundred year birthday during the Acne Paper launch in Milan this November.
The center piece of the publication is a written memoir by Atticus. Within its five chapters Atticus narrates us through his cultured life where he starts out as a dancer, first with Balanchine, then with Merce Cunningham, before becoming an art world personality. In his vivid reflections illuminating chosen moments of his life we meet a dazzling gallery of art world giants, dancers, musicians, writers, designers, architects and people Atticus has admired, encountered and befriended.
