The inaugural issue of Dear magazine, a collection of various genres of work, explores the theme of ‘Lost and Found’

The cover itself sets the tone: a mass of words, all aligned side by side to create a dense, typographic visual. On first look it's illegible, but some trawling reveals individual words, encompassing the magazine's debut theme 'Lost and Found'.

Featuring works ranging from visual art and writing to photography, Dear Vol. 1's aesthetic involves muted tones and clean lines. The magazine looks to unveil the quirks of everyday life – something we could all use to liven up our daily routines.

Dear Magazine

Funded in part by the SG50 Celebration Fund, 'Lost and Found' is a retrospection on Singapore's unique cultural landscape: the identities we've left behind, and the mix of cultures that don't quite fit into a box.

Be it nostalgic or current, serious or humorous, we're excited to see what Dear magazine can offer.

Dear Vol. 1 is now available for pre-order. More information on the magazine can be found here
