Klebstoff #5 — Magazine For Urban Sticker Culture
Last year we reviewed the fourth issue of Klebstoff, the world’s first and only magazine that consists entirely of stickers. Printed in a limited edition of 1000, Klebstoff features great sticker designs by a wide range of graphic talents from around the world. Some weeks ago we received the magazine’s colorful fifth issue, that was co-produced by Berlin-based Lodown Magazine.
Klebstoff is a unique magazine that’s completely printed on high-quality vinyl sticker material. The magazine is not only a carefully curated collection of fresh urban sticker art — the precise kiss-cuts make it possible to peel off all of the 199 (!) featured stickers. “Erst lesen, dann kleben.” However, I can imagine that you want to keep these little artworks for yourself, because many of them are just too great to stick to a lamp post.
The fifth issue of Klebstoff features stickers by German graphic artists like Matthias Marx, Newskooldisplay and Florian Bayer, but also by international talents including Matt Furie (US), Dennis Chow from Canada, and UK-based designer Will Sweeney. There’s no real theme, but the makers explain that “in the making we found a lot of skulls, sex references and satanic shit on our table of content”. Get prepared!
Klebstoff #5 is published in a limited edition of only 2000 hand-numbered copies. Don’t wait too long if you want to get your hands on a copy — the issues of the sticker magazine are pretty popular. (Klebstoff #1 and #3 are already sold out.) Check out this website for more information. Stick ‘em up!
