Buffalo Zine is a shapeshifter, every issue is different (originally a meta-newspaper about a magazine, then a grunge zine, then a Victorian children’s novel) and as ever, they haven’t just adopted a new format for the sake of it. The magazine is shifting from annual to biannual, and the editors have reflected their new concern for the business side of things with a close up look at advertising, selling and buying, and by extension, desire. The glossy catalogue is the natural visual format for these themes.
The latest issue of Buffalo Zine comes in the form of a shopping catalogue. ‘International Buffalo Zine Catalogue’ chimes with a number of publications received recently, from Mushpit (the new issue of which is imminent) to Sofa. It shares with these mags a love of a throwaway visual vernacular: clumsily mixed system fonts, random display typefaces, cheesy photoshop techniques and oversaturated colours add up to a visual cacophony quite contrary to ‘good’ design.
