MacGuffin #9

Regular price
MacGuffin is an unusual design and crafts magazine. It features fabulous stories about the life of ordinary, often anonymously designed things. Each biannual edition takes an object and explores the manifold stories it generates. Like the MacGuffins in Hitchcock films, these things are not the main characters, but the plot devices that set the story in motion.

MacGuffin #9 is dedicated entirely to the world beneath your feet: The Rug. MacGuffin enters a bazaar packed to the rafters with carpet jungles, carpet beaters and carpet traders; war rugs, hairy rugs and prayer rugs; magic carpets, airport carpets and travelling carpets; doormats, tatami mats and coconut mats; carpets made of brick, concrete and peanut butter; carpets from Pakistan, Palestine, Persia and Poland. Featuring Sarah Arnolds, Alessandra Covini, Rachel Dedman, Krijn Giezen, Kayla Mattes, Samuel Nyholm, Hannah Ryggen, Scheltens & Abbenes, Alice Twemlow and many many more.
