One of our most eagerly anticipated titles, Macguffin concentrates on a different object each issue, through its history, artistic merit, scientific application, inherent weirdness and the people who use, make and think deeply about stuff. We're excited to get this rug issue, bet you are too.
"Make yourself as snug as a bug in a rug and open up MacGuffin Nº9, dedicated entirely to the world beneath your feet: ‘The Rug’. MacGuffin enters a bazaar packed to the rafters with carpet jungles, carpet beaters and carpet traders; war rugs, hairy rugs and prayer rugs; magic carpets, airport carpets and travelling carpets; doormats, tatami mats and coconut mats; carpets made of brick, concrete and peanut butter; carpets from Pakistan, Palestine, Persia and Poland. Featuring Hannah Ryggen, Krijn Giezen, Sarah Arnolds, Alice Twemlow, Kayla Mattes, Rachel Dedman, Alessandra Covini and many many more."
