From the publisher and design studio Folch, based in Spain: Odiseo: Combining sexual imagery with insightful essays and crossing the boundaries of books and magazines, odiseo defines itself as a hybrid. With Odiseo, we don’t seek to publish current content but we focus on the extended present, retaining the periodicity but doing away with the obsolete. This complex and contradictory nature shaped Odiseo as a small, bi-annual hardcover publication that falls between a book and a magazine. Moving away from the tradition of magazine mass consumption, Odiseo is a publication to be appreciated and read without pressure, it deserves quality time invested into its content.
