Is Not take-away #1
Is Not take-away #1 is the first portable issue of Is Not Magazine. It is also the new, comprehensive type sampler from Underware, showing their fonts both in use and indexed. Is Not take-away #1 started its life as Is Not Magazine Issue 4. The themes are Young and Free. There are articles about everything from the misconceptions of youth, to free music downloading. Among numerous stories and drawings, Is Not take-away includes one article written by a teenage schoolgirl, a field guide to local Australian birds and, of course, a treasure map.
Is Not Magazine has been published bi-monthly as a 2m x 1.5m bill poster and pasted to the streets, laneways, cafés and bars of Melbourne, Australia since April 2005. Is Not’s format invites interaction with the city and the city’s inhabitants. It asks people to be curious, enthusiastic. Is Not is an experiment in publishing, designing and reading. Each issue features fiction and non-fiction articles, reviews, pictures, diagrams and a story that ends in another location. There are two themes per issue, as well as stories that readers can store on their camera phones. Is Not Magazine publishes writers and artists from all over the world and only uses Underware typefaces.
