Ditto Press will be launching the first issue of Trust magazine, titled ‘Flexibility’, at their East London space on March 26.
The publication, which was initially released by Akoya Books back in June 2014, is now being re-released by the publishing and design firm (as well as printing house and bookseller). The theme of the issue is the notion of flexibility, and how it figures in contemporary culture.
Created by Federica Cornelli, who works at Akoya Books as a publisher, Trust combines commissions of new works and essays inspired by the theme of flexibility into a beautiful, holdable book with cover designs by Daniel Swan.

When you listen to the music of artists like Joel Ford, it’s as if the 90s never happened. With long time collaborator and childhood friend Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never), Ford jumped straight from his Boston-born soft-rock band Tigercity, enmeshed in its 70s and 80s jazz-funk influences, to the archaic production techniques of the same era in Games, later rechristened the appropriately disco-sounding Ford & Lopatin. There’s not a flannel shirt to be found in the mix, and this from a musician born in Boston and educated in Amherst, MA, before moving to Brooklyn over seven years ago.
Since then there’s been a handful of releases, never to see the metallic sheen of a compact discs 0s and 1s, instead either released on vinyl or straight to download. For Ford’s second solo release under the Airbird moniker, Trust is a freeing excursion beyond the hustle of New York City and out into the Appalachian mountains.share news item
