Tangram celebrates awe-inspiring expression across all creative disciplines. Each issue features an eclectic cast of artists, tinkerers, scientists, and eccentrics who embrace the many exciting intersections between beauty and surprise. The physical journal itself is designed to express a philosophy of play as art. Within the pages, a curious reader can find tactile, visual, and intellectual excitement. Tangram can spark a shift in perspective—things begin to glimmer that never did before. The world becomes a more astonishing place.
This inaugural issue is organized around the theme of "Going into wonder" and features a wide variety of creative minds, including Kensuke Koike (photo artist), Tobias Dostal (light sculptor), Kelli Anderson (paper artist), Robert Bosch (math professor), Oscar Okonu (hyperrealist illustrator), and Polly Morgan (taxidermy sculptor).
Read Tangram to discover unexpected beauty, to appreciate sumptuous print design, to hold something new and unique in your hands, to uncover secret adventures hiding in plain sight…
Our products ship through a privately owned climate-controlled warehouse in San Diego, California.
We offer a variety of shipping methods from budget-friendly to price-doesn’t-matter. You can compare estimated costs and transit times once you begin the checkout process and enter your shipping address. Carrier options may vary based on your destination.
We strive to pack and ship all items within 24 hours of each order (Monday through Friday). However, we are a small team so during peak holiday season we kindly ask that you allow 3-5 days for your items to be sent on their way. Every box shipped from Art of Play is expertly packed by actual human beings (you can see their names written on your package slip). Everyone in our warehouse is paid a fair wage and treated with respect.
