Current Issue

PERDIZ#8

The new issue is full of incredible stories, photography, and characters: from a university professor who trains his own (live) flea circus, to our own personal Lord of the Rings (a British superfan of roundabouts); a photo editorial exploring the ins and outs of ecosexuality, and a two-part feature on immortality. Carlota Guerrero is the artist behind this issue’s front cover. PERDIZ 8 also features photographers like Murray Ballard, Ana Cuba, Anna Huix and Salva Lopez, illustrators like Pol Montserrat and Rosalie Stroesser, and writers like Toño Angulo and Carmen Pacheco.

PERDIZ#7

_97A7387 copia

The cover of our seventh issue, created by Danish artist Johan Rosenmunthe, speaks of balance and beauty – in visual composition as in life. This new issue comes complete with our classic Good News and some Smiles from a cheerleader advanced in years, a rodeo girl and a hairdresser who’ll trim your bob with Samurai swords and fire. We interview a group of activist nuns who grow weed to heal the world. We discuss death – that most fundamental of topics – and how reflecting on it led our protagonist, Joanna Ebenstein, director of the Morbid Anatomy Museum (NYC) to become a more positive person. If that wasn’t enough, our leading photography feature is a killer, covering that very human obsession of seeking better worlds somewhere out there in the universe. And another must-read explains why roller-derby players ignore the normal negative connotations of injury and are proud as punch of their bruises.

PERDIZ#6

A biker girl in sky-high heels and skin-tight leggings is smiling widely to the camera while an ex-architect tells us why he left the office behind to bring happiness to bees. The page turns, a woman confesses her sincere love for the Eiffel Tower and other inanimate objects. In another dimension, a future Martian is explaining how colonizing the red planet could help life here on Earth. Hidden behind a column, we catch a glimpse of illustrator Alexis Nolla drawing the interview of a man who’s dedicated 25 years of his life to chasing a child’s dream: finding the Loch Ness monster. And just when we’d thought the show was over, the Fred Astaires and Ginger Rodgerses of the canine world open the doors of their houses to photographer Bego Antón. Come and see.

These days, being labelled as boring is a near synonym for social exclusion. People flee from it into their iPhone screens and the entertainment industry. We suffer from thaasophobia – the fear of being idle – and in order to avoid it, we are capable of even the most extraordinary things; from collecting tiki artifacts to becoming a merman, breaking Guinnes World Records, such as The World’s Fastest Toilet, founding micro-nations, building a bouncy castle made of breasts or cooking a steak with electricity. In fact, boredom is nothing but the precursor to wild flights of fancy!

In the third issue of PERDIZ you can find out who the Lobster Goddess of Maine was this year, why Scott Roberts is so fascinated with spicy things, and who Father Santiago Caucino wants to score a goal against. Maury Gortemiller explains why, ever since a young lad, he has spent so many hours holding his breath underwater. We’ll set off on llamas (yes, llamas) named Marisco and N.H. Flight of the Eagle and head to an old-folks home, and then on to Everard Cunion, whose house is filled with beautiful, plastic women. Jose A. Pérez will have a telepathic conversation with Bill Gates and we’ll learn how to make our neighbourhood a better place. Are you ready? On to number three!

PERDIZ#2

It’s possible. You can fill 96 pages with positive stories. In issue #2 of PERDIZ you can, among other things, find out about Corey Arnold, photographer and fisherman, and Richard Aslan’slove of grammar. You can also read about the personal quest of Magnum photographer Alec Soth, who wanted to find happiness by escaping, but in the end decided to stay, as well as discovering why some people love vacuums, look for signs of intelligent life in the universe, and have alter egos in virtual worlds. You can do all this through a beautiful magazine, because beauty stimulates those parts of the brain related to pleasure and makes us feel good. And, speaking of stimulation, issue #2 of PERDIZ is red, specifically #E63246.

PERDIZ#1

The first issue of PERDIZ begins with good news (yes, we found some!) and finishes with extraordinary inventions for a better world.

You can also read the chronicle of journalist and cyclist Max Leonard, who explains how riding up mountains makes him happy; you journey into post-capitalist utopias along with John Jordan and Isabelle Freumaux and you discover what a group of guys are doing with the pigeons they raise on the terraces of Brooklyn
