Third time’s a charm: the new LUKS-Magazine hits the stores. This year’s issue with the topic „taboo“ is more serious and so is the layout: the cover presents itself black on black with a fine engraving and the pages are unopened as in japanese binding. We celebrate the release at the Island in Hamburg on june 6th – spread the word!
