If you in London and love art and design books go check out Magma Books. Amazing selection, good vibe. Be prepared to heat up your credit card.
Imagine a shop as a vial in which more or less volatile substances mix to release energy. Ultimately, walking into Magma should be like walking into a thermometer, an instrument indicating ‘where things are at’ at a certain point in time and space. Not because we think so, but as a result of that process, of that retail alchemy: the power of people walking through the door, making suggestions, connecting, rejecting, reacting, interacting, over-reacting. This is the essence of what we do: to try and capture some of that influx and crystallize it into a retail environment.
