The creative people at Boat Studio decided to beat the recession by publishing a bi-annual magazine dedicated to covering ‘new stories from a forgotten city’. The whole team, it seems, decamped for a month, this time to Sarajevo, along with illustrators, photographers, journalists and musicians, to find interesting stories that shed new light on a place that has found it hard to establish a new, post-war, reputation.
The result is an insightful and beautifully crafted magazine that brings a fresh perspective on placemaking in general and Sarajevo in particular.
I will bring in my copy and leave it on reception but please visit www.allaboardtheboat.com for more info.
