A portrait of ASPEN, the original magazine in a box. by Emily King 
032C Issue #6 — Winter 2003/2004 / Page No. 82 - 8
Aspen functioned on the principle of family resemblance rather than that of uniformity: there is enough in common between issues for them to be 
understood as part of the same body of work, but each issue is very different
from all the others.
Emily King is a London-based author, curator, and design critic
Reading Time: about 21 minutes.

If Aspen was an art director's dream, it was also an advertiser's nightmare.
