Alex Hansford, the magician behind the Neat Review 1, 2, and 3, broadened his scope from magic to tangentially related arts with his new release Tangram. If you liked The Neat Review, you'll find Tangram just as beautiful and inspiring.
Tangram celebrates awe-inspiring expression across all creative disciplines. Each issue features an eclectic cast of artists, tinkerers, scientists, and eccentrics who embrace the many exciting intersections between beauty and surprise. The physical journal itself is designed to express a philosophy of play as art. Within the pages, a curious reader can find tactile, visual, and intellectual excitement. Tangram can spark a shift in perspective—things begin to glimmer that never did before. The world becomes a more astonishing place.
Read Tangram to discover unexpected beauty, to appreciate sumptuous print design, to hold something new and unique in your hands, to uncover secret adventures hiding in plain sight…
Tangram is named after the ancient Chinese puzzle, a small set of simple shapes that combine to create an infinite universe of visual possibilities. In Volume One we present the six artists working in illustration, photography, sculpture, paper engineering, taxidermy and mathematics:
- KENSUKE KOIKE
- ROBERT BOSCH
- KELLI ANDERSON
- OSCAR UKONU
- POLLY MORGAN
- TOBIAS DOSTAL
A biannual journal exploring art and wonder. Created by Dan Buck, Dave Buck, Adam Rubin, and Alexander Hansford.
