Desired Landscapes – A Magazine Reading into Cities, is a pocket-sized collection of person-to-place bonds, urban observations and poetic snapshots, seen through the eyes of people who write the stories of today’s cities.
Every issue could be seen as a city guide which reflects upon the representations of the urban experience. A collection of postcards depicting distant theres unvisited or perhaps unforgettable; of projections of possible homes, streets yet to be discovered and urban clichés to be demystified.
This magazine came out from the urge to create a vehicle to travel without traveling. As an unfortunate surprise, that became even more relevant during Covid-19 days. Instead of designing maps of routes, we now count walking distances, to see who are we allowed to see. With this issue, we rethought walking, the hotel, online meetings and telepathy. Sometimes, the experience of reading a text about a city can be more enlightening than an actual visit.
And a city’s image can be more rewarding.
