3. Pretence

We live in a struggle between authenticity and fabrication. These small fabrications, so easily dismissed as vanity, reveal something personal and truthful in their ability to both empower and control us.


The Publication  




The third issue contains seven essays and two editorials exploring the meaning of collected designer packaging, the preformed truth of modelling and the false images of us held by others, amongst others.  

Available from the FRANC STORE and selected stockists
