Forecast, edited by Nicholas Blechman, is the latest edition of Nozone, a smart graphic design and comics 'zine from Princeton Architectural Press. It is the type of publication one picks up, seduced by the cover design and the feel of the stock, only to find the subject matter a lot more serious than expected. Global warming is the theme of this tenth issue of nozone, a forecast in words and pictures of the environment and socio-political changes we can expect over our lifetime and into the next. It is a mix of graphic novel and wake-up call to the mess our world is in; a great format for reading on the bus to get much more of a jolt than a mere cup of coffee can provide.
