Look what i FOUND

As if there wasn't enough "cool" magazines in this town. I can't barely keep up with Paper, Blackbook, Tokion, etc... to crave for a new one. I'm all about magazines, I love the immediacy and their glossiness... they are beautiful objects to collect.

About FOUND...
So, what's this all about?
We collect found stuff: love letters, birthday cards, kids' homework, to-do lists, ticket stubs, poetry on napkins, doodles- anything that gives a glimpse into someone else's life. Anything goes.

And how'd this all start?
One snowy winter night in Chicago a few years back, Davy went out to his car and found a note on his windshield -- a note meant for someone else, a guy named Mario:

We loved this note -- its amazing mixture of anger and hopefulness -- and so we shared it with as many folks as we could. Each friend we showed the Mario and Amber note to seemed to have a few finds to show us in return; clearly we weren't alone in our fascination with FOUND stuff! As a way for everyone to join forces and share their finds with everyone else, we decided to start a magazine called FOUND, a showcase for all the strange, hilarious and heartbreaking things people've picked up.
