Diner Journal is a quarterly publication of esoteric recipes, food writing, illustration and culture loosely based around a theme. There’s a chicken issue, a Vermont issue (with beautiful cheese cloth pattern endpapers), etc. This magazine is proof that we can still find substance and value in print today. The whole thing feels like a tightrope walk between careful, considered design and a haphazard lovingly sloppy zine aesthetic. The paper stock varies, but is always nice. The illustrations are beautiful. Best of all, it’s three hole punched so you can put it in some nerdy binder. You would.
The magazine is affiliated with the Brooklyn restaurant/butcher/shop Marlow & Sons. A lot of the issues (as well as the Marlow & Sons identity) was created by Derick Holt. The latest issue, a rambling collection of “How-to” articles and illustrations, was art directed by August Hefner (who is ALSO great, btw). Buy em up and hold on to them!

Jaunted Haunts Press was founded in 2008 by Righard Kapp, in an effort to formalise the output of his \/#/ cd-r imprint, which in itself was a continuation of where his original One Minute Trolley Dash label left off. Within three years the label’s output has grown to 5 albums, all of which have received considerable acclaim from respected writers such as Richard Haslop and Lloyd Gedye.
The label aims to release music that will stand the test of time, from singular artists who dare to follow their own creative path. Physical releases are packaged in limited edition silkscreened sleeves, while as of late the music is also available in digital format, not so limited edition.
