For our inaugural issue of DEAR, we visit nostalgia by exploring the theme of Lost and Found in our salad-bowl of a nation, Singapore. Mixed cultures, forgotten identities and the quest for meaning in retrospection are uncovered and probed.
The cover—a noisy mass of text created through the removal of word spaces, die-cuts and overlaps presents itself as a chunk of letterforms, albeit so familiar to us, in a disorientating, and uncomfortable fashion. Words and meaning are lost at first glance, but later found again upon careful inspection.
