20 years ago this month - I-D Magazine (issue 136)

I held on to this issue of I-D magazine from January 1995 mainly because it featured people I knew back then, but also because my vanity got the better of me (you can see a poster I designed in the background of one of the photographs). I hadn't seen it for years and was struck by the fact it's 20 years old this month, so thought it deserved seeing the light of day once more.

What's interesting is that it's the 'future' issue and all about 'cyberspace' and tech. I've have a sneaky feeling that even when this was fresh off the presses, 'cyberspace' was already a clichéd term. However there are a couple of good pieces as the angle is nice and dark, featuring Scanner (@robinrimbaud) and the Underground crew (Matt and Graham). 

Fairly prescient stuff: "The threat exists that our communication will be exploited in ways we cannot yet imagine"

The tech gadgets and ads are funny as so of the time, pagers are a big thing and that Bicardi ad is a stereogram!
