AND WORDS: A magazine about a magazine

A literal word-for-word description of Loaded Magazine.

NAKED WOMAN COVERED IN GLITTER, AND WORDS is a literal word-for-word description of Loaded Magazine.

A collaboration with the team at Loaded Magazine exploring the nature of this magazine, and why it was so popular. At the time of production Loaded was the best selling magazine in the UK. This stripped down version was a way of understanding it's allure. Visually it is the opposite of Loaded, intentionally un-designed, and spartan. And because of this, every single line describing what you should be seeing, is far more potent than what you actually can see in the original. Reading this version of Loaded, it becomes evident why the original magazine was so popular. Naked woman covered in glitter, and words is a shrink-wrapped glossy magazine, with the same size and paper stock as Loaded, and consisting of 220 white pages, each with a small selection of words in Times New Roman font.
