Abe’s Penny A micro-magazine started by art/fashion duo Tess and Anna Knoebel (yep, they’re sisters too). Each “issue” of Abe’s Penny pairs a writer with a photographer; the four-part narrative is sent out each week on a postcard until the set is completed. March features photographs by Tod Seelie and a story by Brandon Johnson. A six-month subscription costs $48 and comes with the ultimate satisfaction of receiving mail that isn’t a bill.
Grace Kim Kim photographs evidence of surreptitious relationships, from love hotels in Seoul to one-night stands between Korean gay men. The images are shot in stark black-and-white, but the overall effect is moody and elegant, not seedy. A set of ten miniature photos from the series “Love Hotel” sells for $40.
Kalina Magazine A new publication by Internet-famous photographer Noah Kalina, each issue of Kalina is based upon a single theme or concept. The first, Why Won’t You Love Me, ($17) is a series of portraits capturing one girl on film over the span of two-and-a-half years.
