tl.mag #12 (coming out October 21) will be dedicated to Asian design talent.  To remain in the right atmosphere (even after working hours) the tl.mag team has been reading through Japanese writer Haruki Murakami’s magnificent oeuvre.  We were therefore very excited to see Nowness’ competition that challenges artists to submit an original artwork inspired by any of the writer’s best-selling novels or short stories.  Check out the submissions so far via www.nowness.com.  Inspired?  The competition is open for submissions until October 11!
