Beautiful/Decay began as a small black and white, DIY, photocopied ‘zine in 1996, releasing three issues in its first incarnation. In 2001, it was resurrected as a full color art and design publication featuring some of the most cutting edge and exciting work by artists and designers from all over the world. Over the years Beautiful/Decay grew a cult following and evolved from a widely distributed magazine to a limited edition book. After releasing 35 printed issues, B/D shifted it’s attention full time to its rapidly growing blog; beautifuldecay.com is now home to the same exciting content that made Beautiful/Decay a widely loved and revered creative bible. As B/D’s 20 year anniversary approaches, its coverage of ground breaking art and design reaches a global audience of millions every month, and is an inspirational resource for artists, art collectors, and creative taste makers from all walks of life.
Available copies of the collectible printed issues can be found on the B/D online shop.
