This is the second issue of THE STATE, a print journal from Dubai experimenting with the translation of online information consumption to a book form. Lejla Redja is the designer of this issue, in which essays are folded and tucked into pockets of a two-spread folio.

Dubai, a place where “announcements become architecture within a matter of months,” is an apt place from which to meditate on speculative geographies. The essays of volume ii meander from Brasillia to London to Indonesia to Accra, but all revolve around contemporary understandings of place.

THE STATE announces issue topics in advance and accepts submissions. They also blog. Volume ii is available at Printed Matter.
