Black issue, by Parterre de Rois

Italian art and culture magazine Parterre de Rois has launched its fifth issue, Black.

The magazine’s co-founders Molly Molloy and Gianni Tozzi describe the magazine as an “imaginary dinner party”, with one word as the main topic of focus in each issue.

The Black issue is, unsurprisingly, devoted to darkness, and features a set of original drawings by Anish Kapoor, photography from Chris Shaw and some striking portraits by Sasha Rudensky.

It also includes an interview with Jan Harlan about his brother-in-law Stanley Kubrick’s life and work as a film director.

The Black issue is out now.
