Stack at home: Perdiz, January 2018

by Grace Wang in February 2018

Last month’s Stack delivery was Perdiz, a beautiful publication from Barcelona about happiness. It is packed with stories on the strange and mundane things that make people feel fulfilled in their lives — deep fryers, bad art, weird career pursuits — and it seems to have hit a nerve with our subscribers.

You can see all of their responses on a Pinterest board, or scroll down to see some of our favourites. The best comment wins a Stack t-shirt too…

6. Back to work

5. Dead bodies
This was one of our favourite stories in Perdiz too! The journey of a man whose dream was to become the best dead actor on the big screen.

This just brightened up my Monday – it’s a piece about a guy who decided he wanted to play dead bodies in TV shows. ‘I already look like I’m dead. I’ve got bags under my eyes, I’m pale, I’m bald … I’m actually in pretty good health but you wouldn’t know it just to look at me. I don’t need much make-up’ From @perdizmagazine that I got from @stackmagazines this month 📚

2. “Stupid and happy”
Jenna shouts out one of the best quotes in the magazine.

‘Reassuring us that we’re all as stupid as each other- that we’re all part of the same group of stupid humans. Stupid and happy. And proud of it.’ @perdizmagazine A magazine about things that make people happy.

1. Happiness on the ledge
And the winner this month is Emily, for her rotating, copper magazine throne!

Happiness on the edge/happiness on the ledge 😉 2018 is going to be all the happier as my @stackmagazines arrive month by month and take their place (once thumbed) on this shelf. 🎉
