December


A collection of all the articles we’ve published over the past month, for those who like to savor their Magpies’ tidings as an issue. We’re really honored this month to share photography from Paris, paintings from Ottawa, a brilliant article written in Tokyo about a Ugandan record label, along with beautiful poetry (New Mexico), memoir (UK via Brooklyn), and much more.

It’s deceptively spare and simple in a manner that hides a genius of elegance and grace, which places it in the tradition of Ozu or Rohmer.

Why I Love: Little Fugitive

Francois Truffaut: “Our New Wave would never have come into being if it hadn’t been for the young American Morris Engel, who showed us the way to independent production with his fine movie The Little Fugitive.”
