Craftsmanship! POPEYE Issue 860
What is POPEYE magazine?
POPEYE magazine is the “Magazine for City Boys”. The founders printed this on the cover of the magazine when it debuted in 1976. What’s a “city boy”? The term doesn’t appear in the dictionary and no expert panel could define it. So we felt we should explore every aspect of what this “city boy” might be. After decades of debate, it still makes for a topic of lively discussion. It can be a style or a way of thinking. To get an idea of what makes a city boy, read POPEYE magazine.
POPEYE magazine Founded: 1976 Type: Monthly (on sale from the 10th of every month) Readership: ages 25 to 35 – and anyone who thinks of himself as a city boy Topics: fashion, food, outdoor activities, travel and life in our favorite cities New York, Paris, London and Tokyo
When we encounter great work of craft, we come to wonder about our fascination with them. One reason may be because we simply like their workmanship, and therefore, we would like to support them and inherit their expert techniques to pass onto the next generation. There are a variety of artisans who make one off items, and what we have done with this issue is to attempt to expand the concept of their craftsmanship. It may be difficult to purchase them right now, but we believe it may be achievable, and definitely meaningful to do so someday in the future.
