Issue 1 is available now on Delve into our first issue to read about Korean dramas in Panama. Or English literature in Tehran. Or how an Argentinian-Thai couple work together to create locally-inspired desserts in Shanghai. Or how about a Turkish entrepreneur’s global vision for streaming movies? Or the varied cultural meanings of the jellyfish? Perfect Strangers  Issue 1 comes with 154 pages of beautiful writing and images — explores how the world meets itself through a vibrant array of perspectives. It also contains special inserts with original images from Doan Ly, Mattias Adolfsson, and Susanna Blåvarg.

Perfect Strangers magazine is a publication dedicated to exploring the cross-cultural. We’re fascinated by one question — how does the world meet itself? From artists and entrepreneurs to grandparents and lovers, we feature people from all walks of life who help to connect the world. Through their perspectives, we look at how cultures and languages, habits and ideas, styles and foods, intertwine and transform. We hope you’ll immerse yourself in our beautifully printed pages, and that you’ll discover something interesting — even inspiring — about our interconnected world. Perfect Strangers magazine is published twice a year in San Francisco. We showcase a broad range of voices, and are always looking for more points of view.
