In honor of PAPER's upcoming 30th anniversary, we're getting an official makeover and are showing off our brand-new steez with one of our two September cover stars, Courtney Love! No stranger to PAPER, Courtney first appeared in one of our issues back in 1986 and again in 2012. (Rapper/singer/wild-woman and Paper alumnus Brooke Candy graces our second cover, what what! )
Thinking about how to celebrate our big 3-0, we knew we wanted to toast the folks who embody the PAPER ethos: uncompromising, original thinkers who change the game in whatever they do. In other words, OGs. In the pages of this issue, you'll find Original Gangstas new and old like Patti Smith, Angel Haze, Afrika Bambaataa, Kim Gordon, Fran Lebowitz, Rick Owens, James Jebbia, Jenny Slate and more, sharing words of wisdom and insight into how they kill it again and again.
Elsewhere in the magazine we've shaken up our columns and features, adding new sections devoted to the people, places, and products we're obsessed with along with interviews with some of our favorite icons.
We can't wait to show you what else we've been dreaming up -- keep your eyes peeled for our anniversary issue to hit stands later this month!
