German magazine's new issue has no words, only scents

Issue consists of 12 odours

Mono Kultur, an interview magazine from Berlin, has published this month's issue with only smells, and no words or pictures. The issue consists of 12 scents that are released by rubbing on the paper. Using a special technique called microencapsulation, the scents are literally printed into the pages.

The April issue of the magazine carries the work of Norwegian smell artist Sissel Tolaas. Tolaas, a professor at Harvard University for invisible communication, is considered an expert on scents, odours, smells.

In an interview to the magazine, Tolaas talks about why she is tired of words and images, her turbulent student life and how smells can change lives.
