The soft-touch smudge proof film lamination gives this digitally printed 3D magazine a luxurious feel.
Courtni Poe, the founder and editor of GASP Zine, describes her publication as “a black-owned zine dedicated to providing an unbiased platform to speak, share, and educate with no filter. Our goal is to re-introduce the feelings of excitement, joy, and genuine interest without feeling “uncool.” Well, that last line could (and maybe should) read as our own collective ethos here at DATAGRAPHIC. Joy is definitely something the world can never get enough of and we’re big fans of anyone who proposes to bring it.
Well, “excitement” could also describe our feelings when we initially saw this fun throwback to the world of stereoscopic anaglyph 3D printing. With its signature – and purposefully misregistered – red and cyan plates, the effect when viewed through some classic 3D glasses is just as fun as the first time you saw it in a comic book or cereal box. You would think that misregistered pages mean room for error, but the opposite is actually the case. In order for the effect to appear correctly, the offset of each color plate needs to correspond to the distance from which it is being viewed. The unique and stylized photography throughout the magazine only adds to the fun.
By request, we printed just a limited edition run of the 3D magazine, which could be the farthest thing from “uncool” we’ve seen in a while.
