Minchō is a magazine dedicated to the latest trends in illustration and the graphic arts.
Minchō #19 echoes this recent fascination with cooking in an issue about food, creativity and collaboration whose aluminium container on the front-cover invites you to open it and sample a selection of works and articles that will help you to take a cultural approach to this succulent theme.
We have selected a front-cover image that is unusual for our magazine: the photograph of the creative invitation to an edible exhibition that the London artist and activist, Bobby Baker, organised in her house of Acme Studios in 1976, which is the perfect metaphor for the creation of something exciting out of the ordinary. And this is what food-themed art and cooking is all about.
