A magazine reading into cities

Desired Landscapes is a bookish magazine reading into a diverse mix of cities. A pocket-sized collection of person-to-place bonds, urban observations and poetic snapshots, exploring the sense of a place and the notion of representation of the urban experience.

“Small and beautiful, this exciting new title from Athens makes for an inventive and original addition to the independent travel magazine shelves.”
–– Stack Magazines


“It’s the perfect travel companion, small yet full of intrigue, for when you’re on the go.”
–– Artbook at MoMA PS1

This research expands to further printed matter having the city as a source, such as maps and guidebooks, but also to walking tours and urban research workshops.
