UPON PAPER is a Hahnemühle FineArt initiative. The project is a result of the company's close relation to art, design and creation, and of the wish to create an open and contemporary platform for the dialogue about any imaginable kind of art - even beyond the medium of paper.
UPON PAPER magazine is part of a concept based on three pillars: Together, they form an innovative platform for a dialogue with artists working in every art form, as well as photographers, designers, architects, and art lovers around the world. Thus, the magazine is complemented by the UPON PAPER space in Berlin and the online platform www.uponpaper.com.
Each edition of the magazine features its own theme, which is set in a dynamic relationship to the overarching topic of "paper." UPON PAPER magazine #01, which won the "red dot: best of the best design award", was devoted to the metropolis of Los Angeles.
The second issue has taken COLOR as its main theme. Many of these outstanding contributions of photographers, performance artists, authors and musicians have been specially created for this issue of the magazine
Through the utilization of elaborate production processes, including the use of high-pigment and fluorescent colors as well as some processes individually developed for UPON PAPER-we have paid special tribute to the central theme of COLOR. This issue is awarded with the iF Award for design.
The third issue with the theme "LOVERS" has been launched at the end of May 2013. The works recount the most diverse forms of human affection, emotional ties, and companionship.
With its unconventional format of 49 × 69 cm, printed in high-tech stochastic (FM) screening on 170 g/m² art paper, and produced at the same level of quality as an art book, UPON PAPER sees itself as both object and magazine. The unbound folios can even be individually removed and used as posters.
