Back for their fourth issue, German 'magazine' Pocket continue to present skateboarding in a way no other periodical is at the moment. As with the first three volumes, number 4 is presented in a stitch bound hardback format, to call it a magazine is really stretching the term to its fullest. Meant as the highest possible compliment, Pocket carries the torch of mid to late 90s Transworld, pushing high quality full colour photography of top end tricks to the fore.
