More about this magazine

  • 150 pages 
  • 24cm x 17cm 
  • Published in Singapore, 2019 

Meantime magazine is collection of love stories from Singapore’s past. History is revisited through family photographs and personal memories in an attempt to find a place for human intimacy in the “disconnected national narrative” of Singapore’s past.


The publication is organised into three chapters mirroring the stages of love: beauty, uncertainty, and letting go. Tactile elements are incorporated, including a hand-torn cover,  and an exposed spine. There’s also a roll-out screenplay, a pull-out love letter, an illustrated paper boat, pinned photographs and pressed flowers.


Commended for Launch of the Year and Cover of the Year at the 2019 Stack Awards
