One of Us

cosmos/benthos magazine

| /

Cosmos/Benthos features a collection of short fiction, essays, photographs (tonnes of photographs), illustrations, and lots of recipes that explore our relationship with and our interpretation of both the cosmos and various bodies of water. In essence, we are an indie Food, Stories, and Art publication.

"One of Us is a printed annual produced by three best friends and creatives: designer and illustrator, Monograph & Co.; food/editorial photographer, Issha Marie; and food/lifestyle photographer, Alison Page. The three of us work on both our individual practices as well as collaborate together on some client accounts. This printed annual was conceived out of a mutual desire to put together a wholly self-directed production that showcases our strengths as creatives.

We’re all Canadians, and we wanted to produce a magazine that is made up of mostly Canadian content. We’ll aim to have one international feature per issue, but we lamented the lack of beautiful, collectible, Canadian-born magazines out there… so we created one. We want you to treat every issue of ours like a book you buy yourself every year or so. Every single issue will have a different theme."
