Krass is an intellectually engaged publication; bold in content, targeted in scope and elegant in design. Artists, academics and activists come together in its pages. Krass converse with photographers, politicians and provocateurs.
Krass is for the defiant and the curious. At at increased page range of 142, encased in silver metallic stock with black pigment foiled text, the bold cover represents the intrepid content within. For the third time running, Simon Pearce of Adelaide agency Frame Creative designed the layout, as well as an exclusive font for the issue, aptly named Sinner (Frame Type) — a brutal, neoclassic typeface referencing historic Germanic, blackletter letter-forms, constructed from a strict grid base and system of shapes, the geometric structure is modern and bold in character.
Issue 3 features Abdul Abdullah, Helen Razer, Ishmael Butler, Julian Klincewicz, Maryam Namazie, Sampa the Great, Sanam Sindhi, Saul Williams, Senator Scott Ludlam, Siri Hustvedt, Stanislava Pinchuk (Miso). Plus contributions by Phoebe Collings-James (NYC), Raquel Nave, James Hartley, Moonassi, Ben McGee, Emily Wake and Shane Levene.
