The bi-monthly magazine, Huck, has established itself as one of the foremost titles in independent culture, founded in the UK, the magazine is now available in 20 different countries and with the tag line "radical culture" it is the unofficial manifesto for alternative culture and values. New from the Huck team is its first book – Paddle Against The Flow – which serves as a manifestation of the Huck ethos. 

Set across four chapter headings of: 'Life,' 'Work,' 'People' and 'Change' each portion is expounded with a host of guest contributions such as portraits, advice and quotes from Huck friendly figures. The foreword is written by Douglas Coupland, with quotes and portraits from one of Buro 24/7 Middle East's favourite artists Ai Weiwei, as well as filmmakers Harmony Korine and Miranda July, and novelists such as Chuck Palahniuk and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

If the expertly curated content of the bi-monthly magazine and the enviable procession of vanguard guest contributors are anything to go by, this book is set to be an instant modern classic. Scoop one up while you still have the chance...
