Makeshift Magazine Issue 12 (Laws and Orders) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. The Laws and Orders Issue of Makeshift is featuring India’s private eyes, homemade firearms in Egypt, and everyday superheroes working in the United States.
Makeshift Magazine is a quarterly print publication about creativity in unlikely places, from the favelas of Rio to the alleys of Delhi. These are environments where resources may be scarce, but where ingenuity is used incessantly for survival, enterprise, and a self-expression. Makeshift believes in an industrial future fueled by networks of makers, from roadside engineers to co-working creatives. The magazine is documenting a movement of hackers, sharers, and entrepreneurs innovating under resource constraints. It is about people, the things they make, and the context they make them in.
