    It’s Nice That:

    The publication, possibly the most stylish zine we’ve seen, is for Oh! Open House, “a non profit that aims to redefine the perceptions of spaces in Singapore through art,” Currency tells It’s Nice That. Its exhibition, Good Oh’ Holland Village was a “historical and artistic site specific project” based on Holland Village, “a mature estate in Singapore known for its eclectic and bohemian charm,” says Currency. “Amidst major urban redevelopments, the heritage of the enclave persists, most predominately the Holland Road Shopping Centre built in the 1970s.” Within the shopping centre, “hand-stencilled variations of typefaces such as Jackson and Zipper” remain as the signage on old shops which “still sold products that catered to a Western expatriate clientele, a community with roots that came from British Military Settlements in Singapore as early as the 1930s”.
