Since getting Stevie we've been buying (and losing) a lot of balls, so an issue dedicated to this spheroid, everyday article is well-timed. Inside the new MacGuffin you'll find the erratic behaviour of world cup footballs, the sad tale of Laszlo Biro's ballpoint, the glittering mirrored moon of the disco ball and the invention and inventor of the ubiquitous Smiley. Elsewhere there are biospheres, inflatable bubble suits, Aldo Van Eyck's playful public hemispheres and trundling tumbleweed!
MacGuffin is a magazine about the life of things. Often seen as humble and prosaic, these objects spring to life under the lens, revealing strange, wonderful and fascinating stories which spin off at tangents. Beautifully assembled, with varied paper stocks, great photography, handsome illustration and some very readable copy, this magazine raises the ordinary to the sublime.
