In addition to opening up a new location in New York, the fine gentlemen at INVENTORY have recently released their much anticipated eighth issue for Spring/Summer 2013. The cover stories for this issue of INVENTORY focus on Nepenthes president Keizo Shimizu as well as the British photographer Mark Borthwick, both well known industry figures with interesting backstories to be uncovered. Further features include photoessays from the talented James Pearson-Howes and Osma Harvilahti. There is a look at the history of the renown Cone Mills denim mill and stories on The Soloist, Leslie Hewitt, Gottlund Verlag, Takashi Kumagai and local legend Raif Adelberg. Each issue of INVENTORY is a pleasure to pick up and browse through for the beautiful layout and design as well as the nicely curated content and the eighth is no exception. A less publicized highlight, Illustrated Examples comes through with one of its most interesting themes to date, focussing on some of the cars from ‘our’ youths. Definitely worth a look if you’ve enjoyed their work in the past, the newest issue is available now both in their online shop as well as in the New York and Vancouver stockroom locations.
