Nate Matos’s “Serif & Silver Compendium”

Serif & Silver was a quarterly journal Nate Matos  wrote and published between June 2015 and March 2016. I was completely unaware of it at the time—as I’m largely unaware of many things—and I would’ve remained unaware, if not for The Shoot with Matt Day (iTunes).
