Memorable for marquee interviews with Dozie Kanu, Jonathan Olivares, Frida Escobedo (second cover), and genius artist and freestyle urbanist William Scott, among others. Designed under the influence of Erin Knutson, with melting titles and dream-like Lanzarote landscapes. Comes with Yeezy supplement. A crowd pleaser, then and now. (2021 cover reinterpretation by Iwan Baan.)
