Balkon & Garten is a sort of art- and literary magazine about plants and the people who like them, particularly city people. For each issue, a theme is announced and the readers are invited to send art and writing in response.
I’ve been a long-time reader and sometime contributor. My side of the Urban Plant Research project has developed in symbiosis with the constant flow of information about other plant-related art that I get from Balkon & Garten and its companion blog, Beton + Garten. So I was happy to be invited to guest-design the current issue.
Please take a look and if you like what you see, you can order a magazine from its publisher, Anke Wulffen:
The new issue on the Balkon & Garten website (in German). To browse the magazine, click and drag the bottom right-hand corner to turn the page.
The new issue at Gute Seiten (in English), a new online newstand for independent zines.
