This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: This publication collects the first ten issues of Album magazine, created by artists Eline Mugaas, chiefly a photographer, and Elise Storsveen, who works primarily in painting, collage and textile. Each issue of the magazine grapples with a different theme: heterosexuality, commodities and commodification, the "lonely man," femininity, architecture, the desire for children, outer space, the creative female and nature. Each theme is explored entirely through found images or full pages taken from a variety of sources from the 1960s to the 1970s, which range from Scandinavian advertisements, etiquette manuals, cookbooks and magazines to craft books and sex-education guides. Each thematic issue provides a deftly arranged panoply of clever readings, made clear only through the artists' juxtaposition of images. Album engages in a sophisticated metanarrative on the human body, sexuality and the social lives of images.
