ISSUE HIGHLIGHTS:

Guest-edited by Cornelius Tittel of Die Welt, our cover dossier on PICASSO AND THE GERMANS IN 1913 takes us back to a European society on the verge of catastrophic change. It was the ground zero of modernism, and while Picasso was denounced as the "Cubist Bluff," a small yet significant group of German-Jewish dealers embraced the painter who would go on to become the greatest artist of the century.

RIHANNA is the unfiltered and fiercely productive icon that every era needs and obsesses about. 032c invited Dutch photography duo Inez & Vinoodh to portray the 25-year-old pop star in a studio on Broome Street in Lower Manhattan this September.

A favorite among the avant-garde of the 1930s, Italian fashion designer Elsa SCHIAPARELLI (1890–1973) closed her legendary house in 1954. Entrepreneur Diego Della Valle acquired the name in 2007, and this year invited Christian Lacroix to design an 18-piece haute couture collection to officially reinaugurate the label. 032c commissioned Juergen Teller and Kristen McMenamy to capture his tribute to Schiaparelli on a Greek island in the Aegean Sea.

"TOMI UNGERER is the most famous children's book author you've never heard of," Phaidon Press stated on the occasion of republishing the Alsatian artist's illustrated books from the 1950s–70s. Ungerer (b. 1931) has made more than 150 books that range from children's literature to erotica. An officer of the Légion d'honneur, a Council of Europe goodwill ambassador for childhood and education, and the only living illustrator to have a museum dedicated to his life and work, Ungerer has juxtaposed works from the past with new collages for 032c in a 22-page story.

The work of artist CYPRIEN GAILLARD(b. 1980) navigates between architecture and nature, geography and psychological states. For 032c, Gaillard has created a sculpture edition. Modeled from a recent series of collages of images from National Geographic, it's a tiny monument to the historic publication, which turns 125 this year.
