We might joke that we can’t live without Taobao, but for some people it is a literal matter of life or death. The 4th issue of Open Sesame, a magazine about the world of Taobao, revolves around the topic of Staying Alive and how important Taobao was during the pandemic. From Covid protection gear for dogs to whole cling-film wrapped cakes to sketchy home remedy pills, Taobao provides for all of your needs while you’re stuck inside. The publication is full of witty articles introducing weird images and products on the site, showing a side of Taobao you’ve never seen before.
A hilarious, playful self-initiated magazine created by the Beijing Lava Studio @lava_beijing team. Zine Coop is happy to having some stocks.
