Jom’s first print issue is now on sale for S$36, which includes domestic shipping. We’re really excited about the breadth of content. There’s our usual Jom fare, including “Singapore This Year”, with contributions from our entire team, and a profile of Prashant Somosundram, general manager of The Projector. We’re looking forward to seeing our co-founder Charmaine Poh’s photographs of Prashant in print.
There’s also more novel stuff, including a crossword puzzle on notable Singaporean Leftists, and two depictions of “The Singapore Dream”: one a fold-out insert from Kontinentalist, that has a mix of a choropleth map, infographics and charts, all done with the firm’s usual rigour; and the other a playful satirical photography series by Jaya Khidir that shows couples in four different homes, from a public housing apartment to a colonial black-and-white.
We’ve got a limited run, so get your copy now. We’ll start shipping them at the end of November. Jom’s Supporters and Patrons are entitled to a copy with your subscription—we’ll reach out soon for your address—but do get more for your friends.
We hope they make for good Christmas gifts too.
