The Edit: The Power of the Tangible

The timeless allure of print, why NFT markets are cooling down and more in this week’s #TheEdit.
25th Mar 2022

Last week, we celebrated the launch of Issue 01 of our print magazine with contributors, collaborators and friends. The smell of fresh ink filled the room and people were able to leaf through the magazine as they sipped their cocktails. 

In an increasingly digital world, we firmly believe that the tangible still has a crucial role to play in our lives. From the power of the printed medium to the importance of human touch and connection, physically experiencing something will always have an irreplaceable value in society. 

In this week’s Edit we’re celebrating the power of the tangible and all that it can achieve in bringing people together, communicating ideas and stories, and changing the world for the better. 

Here’s what you might have missed this week:

  • NFTs and crypto markets are the ultimate symbol of the intangible. But recently, the NFT market seems to be cooling down rather than speeding up – Fortune
  • If knowledge is power, as the saying goes, then printing is one of the most powerful inventions in human history. We collaborated with Ricoh to explore just why printing will always be relevant – The Beautiful Truth
  • Professor Peter Wayne Moe charts the importance of tangibility as he reconstructs the bones of a whale, mapping the impact that the years long process has on himself and his students – Long Reads 
  • Larry Fink discusses why he believes the war in Ukraine signifies the end of globalisation – Financial Times

  • Digital vs tangible: when it comes to geopolitical sanctions, have digital repercussions become more effective? – Raconteur
  • The secret to maintaining friendship might just lie in actively – even aggressively –  pouring time and energy into others. Robin Dunbar’s new book, Friend, highlights some key insights into how and why friendship matters – The New York Times

The Beautiful Truth Magazine Issue 01 is available for pre-sale here.

“We seem to forget that we gauge the world with all of our senses — with sight, with smell, with touch, with sound.”
