Chutney is an independent magazine focusing on everyday stories of identity and culture told by marginalised or misrepresented voices on their own terms. This third issue features stories on Iranian funk, Yaffa oranges, Campofilone, grape molasses, archives, leftovers, classic cars, papercuts, swamps, sculptures and Sherihan.
Split into the familiar three sections that reflect the process of making chutney—Chop, Mix and Preserve—the issue carries 11 personal stories reflecting on history, cultural exchange and the legacies of others. As noted in the opening editor's letter, ‘Understanding these threads of connection is both exciting and reassuring, as it celebrates our individuality while speaking to what we may have in common with each other’.
This issue also marks a big step forward for the magazine: a larger print run, more pages, and a shift from risograph to offset printing. Yet it cleverly retains its subtle visual charm, a textured cover paper and gold foil logo continue its relationship with special print techniques, and the colour palette referencing riso thoughout.
