A zine about magazines

Mostly Adspace
I wanted to explore just how ridiculous the ads are that we are exposed to everyday in magazines and how unfazed we are by them. Using an issue of Harper's Bazaar, I chose a selection of ads that I was most amused by and scanned them. I then edited them to represent a more realistic point of view but was careful to keep the design as close to the original as possible. 

What is advertisements actually told the truth?
The magazine that was used as a reference for this project had 193 pages. Out of those, 96 pages were filled with advertisements. That's almost 50% of the content. That's a lot of lies.
