Luxury is an unsatisfied desire for many and so it is also a driving force of the economy and society, and yet at the same time it demonstrates the voracious side of a society based on money rather than moral, cultural and human values. The artist portfolios included in this issue afford a broad perspective of the current conception of luxury through different points of view: irony, desire, wealth, class. With contributions by Jessica Craig-Martin, Daniela Rossell, Martin Parr, Jim Goldberg, Cecil Beaton and many others.
