Plethora Magazine (DK)
Plethora is an independent art publisher and design studio based in Copenhagen focusing on printed matter. Their trademark Plethora Magazine is a hybrid between a journal and a curated selection of fine art prints. A timeless, gentle giant (70 x 50cm) in the face of fast-track digitization- with no noise, no ads and no logos, just 52 pages of poster-size visual indulgence and tales from the life less ordinary. The magazine’s editorial profile is a fusion of universal philosophical themes, naïve science, mythological and ethnological phenomenon and contemporary art features. Our various books and magazine editions are printed by the monks of a Hindu temple, paying homage to the unique qualities of artisanal printing tradition and offering a purist vision for the future expression of printed matter.
