Aspen is about excellence in any field. It brings you new ideas in new formats. Each issue is built around a different theme by a different editorial-design team (the best that we can find). So the content and format change radically each issue.
For example, Andy Warhol put our Pop/Underground issue in a Fab box. Then filled it with an underground movie flip book; a postcard kit of new paintings; a rock & roll "press kit"; the first, last and only edition of the Plastic Exploding Inevitable underground newspaper.
In contrast, our next issue on Far Eastern Thought will be brimful with five rolled scrolls: a Kuo Hsi landscape (Sung dynasty, 11th century)... a calligraphy scroll from the Palace Museum on Taiwan... a Ch'an masterpiece by Yu-Chien... a yard-long frieze of Indian temple sculpture... a Tibetan thanka.
There'll also be miniature screens from the Shoko Zen Temple in Kyoto... Rajput miniatures from India... Zen parable cards... even a dragon kite. All scented with incense. It's the issue you'll hang all over the house.
By unbinding our magazine, letting it run free in its box, there's no end to our three-dimensional ideas. in short, you don't simply read Aspen... you hear it, hang it, feel it, fly it, even sniff it!
