Space is the Place

A zine of psychedelic illustrations throws an equally-trippy launch party

Inspired by the Sun Ra film of the same name, Space is the Place is a rad little zine coming out of Brooklyn. We first fell for it when it was one of the few indie publications we chose to feature in our pop-up shop with Gap last fall. The work of illustrator (also a friend of CH) Keren Richter and graphic designer Andrew Janik, the mini mag includes some of the best contemporary graphic artists in the field.


Featuring the work of nearly 25 hand-picked international artists, the work is united by underlying tones of "psychedelia, fluorescent jarring colors and patterns, drug inspired fantasy, and celestial iconography."


If you're lucky enough to be in NYC tomorrow, swing on down to La Caverna in LES for Space is the Place's "Magazine Launch Party/Rave" featuring DJs, video projections, and even an open bar. The first 50 people there also get a complimentary copy of the zine and some other fun party favors. Make sure to RSVP!
