Subsequence vol.5 Now Available for Sale

The special supplement for this issue is called, “My Archives: A Handmade Minibook”, in which readers can make a book themselves by removing a number of saddle-stitched pages from the issue. There are two DIY books which contain re-edited versions of twelve articles from Hiroki Nakamura’s serialization “My Archive”—which ran from 2012 for six years in the magazine POPEYE—these never before seen twelve articles were not part of the published collection of essays from the My Archive book (2018, Magazine House).
