The Thing Quarterly is a periodical in the form of an object. It’s like a magazine, except that each issue is conceived of by a different contributor and then published on a useful object.
Issue 19 is by visual artist David Shrigley . Entitled THE TRAVEL ISSUE, it was produced in collaboration with designer Matt Singer and consists of a leather travel wallet lovingly gold foiled with the text 「The Travel Wallet」. Inside the wallet there is a series of four double-sided removable phrase cards and a 24 page passport book (which can also be removed).
