Hamam is a bathing obsessed print publication
We started publishing Hamam in 2020, because there wasn't a magazine out there that cared enough about a good soak. Featuring essays, artist projects, photography, and interviews with unconventional spirits all over the world, Hamam explores the art and culture of bathing and many other practices of letting go.
The debut issue received the GMK Turkey (Graphic Design Association of Turkey) 2020 Editorial Design Achievement Award and was named a Kickstarter "Project We Love", Magazine of the Week by magCulture, and Best New Indie Mag by Page Magazines. magCulture had this to say about Hamam:
"Hamam is so appealing because, at its (steamy) core, this is a magazine about something all of us grapple with—how to live. It explores the common idea of, and desire to cleanse ourselves—physically in water, spiritually, and mentally."
