The zine is the result of collaborative efforts by Jun Takahashi, art director Tetsuya Nagato, photographer Taro Mizutani and Katsuhide Morimoto, under the moniker “UNDERCOVER PRODUCTION,” a studio whose works involve projects with the likes of Valentino, Japanese rock band GEZAN and more. “SN,” short for “Spiritual Noise,” is a recurring motif for UNDERCOVER.
While specific details of the zine’s contents remain scarce, the label revealed a list of well-known artists like Thom Yorke, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Will Sweeney and Frank Lebon, to name a few, who have contributed with illustrations, photographs, collages, paintings and other forms of works. The zine’s covers will also come in different variations, artful sleeves that can be unfolded and used as posters. Three T-shirts and a tote bag will also be launched with the zine.
Available on July 18 on UNDERCOVER’s website, the “SN” zine will be limited to 500 copies for $63 USD, while the merch will range from $56 – $120 USD.
