Synopsis

While magazines such as Spin and The Face have disappeared from newsstands and mailboxes, there has been an explosion of independent, creatively led magazines that are currently shaping the future of print. Non-traditional periodicals with names like Boneshaker, Lucky Peach, Anorak, WRAP and Kinfolk are taking their places on shelves and coffee tables everywhere. Print is Dead. Long Live Print is an eye-opening look into the fascinating field of independent print journalism, showcasing over 50 examples of innovative magazines from around the globe. The book divides the magazines into genres, including art and culture, travel, sports and style. Each periodical is represented by selected spreads and newly commissioned photography, along with a brief introductory text. Interviews with editors, art directors and founders from each magazine offer background information as well as insight into why they decided to start their publications and the challenges they face. A directory at the back lists dozens more magazines worth investigating. This paean to the printed word is filled with creativity and innovation as well as hope for the future of print media.
