Issue #37 “For Those in Fear of the Lake of Fire”

Since most residents of Sarpourenx are very old, and thus have an impending need for a place for eternal rest, an acute dilemma has presented itself. What to do with the dead?

Build a new cemetery on the other side of town? Surely an experienced mayor would be able to come up with a reasonable solution? However, the mayor decided to follow less conventional lines of reasoning and concluded: Let us ban death. (More>> www.t-post.se)

For the third issue in a row, we bring you the talent of a London based designer. This time its the queen of Peckham Kate Moross. Starting out by designing flyers and record covers for the London underground music scene a few years ago, she was soon picked up by larger clients and got to design everything from billboards to her own clothing range.

Kate likes three sided shapes and illegible typography and this piece celebrates the marriage of the two. A geometric typeface spells out a sentence, visable for those in fear of the lake of fire… Now, go to katemoross.com and browse through the wonderful world of this 22 year old up and coming design superstar.

About T-post

T-post is a wearable magazine. Subscribing to T-post is a lot like having a subscription to a magazine but instead of receiving magazines in your mailbox – you receive T-shirts. As a subscriber you receive a new t-shirt based on a current news item every six weeks. Select designers provide their interpretation of a specific news story and that design is combined with the actual news which is printed on the inside of the shirt.

“What’s fascinating about T-post is the interaction it creates. Nobody asks you about the article you just read in the bathroom. But if you’re wearing an issue of T-post, people tend to ask what its about. The next thing you know, you’re talking about the ethical treatment of robots or some bank robbers in Brazil who got away with 45 million bucks. You’re forming your own opinion, getting someone else to think about the topic, and it just keeps going from there. Because the news is printed inside the shirt, the subscriber is left with an opportunity to interpret and communicate the meaning behind the shirt. It really becomes the subscribers interpretation of the story, which is even more interesting to hear about, I think” said Peter Lundgren Editor-in-Chief at T-Post.

T-post started back in 2004 from an idea to re-wire the structures of news communication. While concepting ways to engage people in important topics, our favourite garment, the T-shirt, quickly came up and seemed like an ideal media for our aspiration. T-shirts inspire conversation, and when you ad a story to them, you get people thinking; you create a buzz. By combining a magazine subscription with a T-shirt were able to utilize the attention and commitment accustom to the fashion world while communicating interesting and important news topics. It all started out as an experiment. Today we’re sending our issues to over 50 countries.

A subscription to T-post costs 26 EUR per T-shirt, and can be delivered anywhere in the world. All shipping costs are included in that price.
