A second issue as rich and generous as the first. Interviews with Yûichi Yokoyama, exploring the method and path followed by this incredible Japanese author (who also has several books with Art Book Magazine); Jean-Xavier Renaud, an atypical and extraordinary artist, capable of frightening dexterity and of definitive formal rampages, who talks here of his daily life as a councillor in a small provincial town and as an illustrator/painter in every field; Françoise Pétrovitch; Édouard Baribeaud... An issue that opens up, explores, misuses and juxtaposes practices that only meet too rarely, if at all - it’s this risk-taking that makes Collection so interesting. Dense and well produced, it’s even more pleasant to read on-screen, with the ability to zoom through the thumbnails and drawings to discover all of their subtleties.

Art Book Magazine
Collection is a magazine that presents drawing in its many forms, from contemporary art to graphics via comic strips, through dialogues with the artists. The team of illustrators and artists behind Collection doesn’t offer a journalistic or a critical point of view, but aims to stand up for drawings, without caring for any barriers between the genres, by letting those who draw do the talking.
