Founded in 2010, The Travel Almanac (TTA) is the first ‘true post-tourism’ publication. It focuses not only on the traditional notion of physical travel, but the ways in which movement and location permeate all aspects of contemporary life. TTA is published bi-annually from Berlin.
"The Border Issue" of the magazine attempts to dissect the concept of borders and boundaries — to understand how they manifest, shift, reappear and blur. Visionary architect SHOHEI SHIGEMATSU and experimental pop artist SERPENTWITHFEET are the two cover stars of this issue.
