Acid surf magazine is a beautifully designed and produced slice of surf culture. Issue 2 contains a flurry of entertaining and stimulating pieces, like an extensive look at Gotland, the Hawaii of the Baltic Sea; Thomas Prior’s take on the Eisbach; a trip underwater to discover artificial reefs; a tale of survival attempts in tropical and polar waters; an examination of the relationship between surfing and coastal developments; an exploration of Ireland by bike. And some more.
Acid is more book than magazine, it's 144 pages being perfect bound and 5 colour offset printed on FSC paper. The run is limited to 2,000 copies.
Salt+Wax is the second book by photographer Mark Leary. Having surfed since the age of nine Mark wanted to capture a sport from the real angle and not the stereo-typed imagery that so regularly goes hand-in-hand with this sport. Images that hopefully all surfers will relate to - the everyday obsessions that all watermen have. A limited edition signed book, only 600, all hard-backed quarter bound foil blocked things of beauty.
“Mark has captured the sentiment of the water world’s view of life. The pages bring us back to the happier reality.” - Tom Wegener / Shaper
