The new Apartamento is here bringing us amazing interiors and their fascinating inhabitants. inside issue #22 you'll find the homes of Columbian figurative artist Fernando Botero, Spanish counter-cultural comic book legend Nazario Luque, British-Ghanaian photographer Campbell Addy and French designer and publisher Francoise Mouly. Elsewhere Jan Schmelcher draws his memories of East LA in the 70s, Leanne Shapton's languid watercolours accompany an interview with Canadian writer Sheila Heti, and Ruth Rogers looks back at 31 years of the River Cafe.
Apartamento is the 'an everyday life interiors magazine' which focuses its attention on the lives of extraordinary people who live inside wonderful and fascinating dwellings. It has been titled the world's hippest interiors magazine, but to us it is a beautifully written title which always brings us something new.
August Becker remembers the queen of bohemian artists, Gertrude Abercrombie.
