MacGuffin is one of our favourite biannual art and design magazines. With each issue based around a single object, MacGuffin magazine is a platform for fans of inspiring, personal, unexpected, highly familiar or utterly disregarded things. Widely recognized as a fabulously designed and immaculately researched design & crafts biannual, it is an indispensable resource for all those who want backstage information about the life of things.
We thiiiiink the name might come from the MacGuffin effect. In fiction, a MacGuffin (sometimes McGuffin) is an object, device, or event that is necessary to the plot and the motivation of the characters, but insignificant, unimportant, or irrelevant in itself.... The MacGuffin technique is common in films, especially thrillers. Cool huh?
MacGuffin Magazine celebrates its tenth jubilee by uncorking a miscellany of bottles that capture the zeitgeist. The menu for this festive issue includes a parade of down-market perfumes, messages squeezed into bottles, recipes for the perfect Molotov cocktail, the curated contents of celebrity fridges, the curious colours of centuries-old domestic bottles, the racism rife in the wine business, the salvation sought at AA sessions, and the many marvels awaiting you in the mini-bar. Featuring among others Kandace Siobhan Walker, Jacy Topps, José Quintanar, Studio Qiu Yang, AtelierNL, El Ultimo Grito, Emily King, Mirka Laura Severa, Johannes Reponen and an anthology of graphic design talent. Cheers!
