Meantime is an independent magazine documenting Singapore stories lost to time. Published annually, each issue uncovers our past through personal stories.
In this issue:
A tiger roams a shop in Singapore’s Chinatown
Men with long hair talk about their locks and their pops
In pursuit of better toilet standards, an activist makes himself the butt of the joke
Trans women and naked sailors put on a show at Bugis Street in the 1980s
Residents have a laugh at their street names
A chewed up cover: The cover breaks the convention of what a publication should look like – in a fresh format that doesn’t take itself too seriously. We leave it to you to devour it ;)
An ode to print: Run your fingers through the paper to discover tactile details and plenty of print surprises: an exposed thread spine, tip-ins, hot stamping, and a special pantone neon palette.
A trippy experience: Interact with the stories through Augmented Reality (AR). Scan the pages with your phone using an exclusive filter on Meantime’s Instagram. Then see the magic happen.
