Found Magazine.

Into all things quirky and collectible? Consider yourself somewhat of a curious being? Or maybe your just a nosey pain in the arse? Which ever way you look at it - Found Magazine is for you. Just when you start to think there isn't a original thought out there in the world you stumble across a magazine/website/book combination such as the Found collection and life seems a bit OK again....

You see what happened was one stormy night in Chicago, Found creator Davey went out to his car only to find a note attached to his windscreen... a note meant for somebody else, some dude called Mario, and the note went a little something like this

"Mario, I fucking hate you. You said you had to work then whys your car HERE at HER place?? You are a fucking LIAR. I hate you. I fucking hate you. 
Amber. PS: Page me later."

Actually it went exactly like that... Davey loved this note. Everyone he showed it to loved this note, Hell! I love this note! It made me giggle... and who doesn't love a good giggle? So why not create a space to display this note, and how about we let other people display funny notes or cool photos they've found too? From there grew the Found website... which eventually turned into a quarterly magazine and has no evolved into a series of books, the raddest in my opinion being "FOUND: Polaroids"

If you've got some time to kill and would like to check out something truly unique click here to be taken to the website... you can also upload your own finds, subscribe to the awesome mag or buy their freak'n fantastic range of books. Enjoy.
