For a while now Bristol has been a great source of independent magazines, so it make sense for them to band together and form Bristol Independent Publishers. BIP will promote the many local magazines – Another Escape, Boneshaker, Cereal, Offlife… the full list is on their site.
Congratulations to all the winners at the UK Digital Magazine Awards earlier this week. Headline winners include Katachi, Top Gear and BBC Good Food…

The magCulture pop-up shop will be at next week’s Monocle Christmas Market, selling signed copies of ‘The Modern Magazine’ as well copies of My Favo(u)rite magazine, Gym Class Magazine and a range of recent magazines. December 7-8, Dorset Street London W1U 4EG.
I’ve noted here before how exciting it is to see Colors reborn under editor-in-chief Patrick Waterhouse, and his talk at the Modern Magazine conference only underlined the thought that goes into the magazine these days. The latest issue, titled ‘Looking at Art’, is another excellent piece of magazine making.
You’ll find the latest issues of The Gentlewoman, Libertine and Oh Comely (as a result of the discussion about women’s titles at our recent conference), the new Colors (Looking at Art) and the unique record of last year’s Making Magazines conference.
Plus plenty of others including My Favo(u)rite Magazine and discounted copies of ‘The Modern Magazine’ book.

What Andrew Losowsky is doing next.
Sales of My Favo(u)rite Magazine are continuing well, with just three Limited Editions packages left. The big news is that Monocle have ordered 80 copies to sell in their shops around the world. They’re buying them at full price, with all proceeds going to the fund. We’re very grateful to Tyler Brûlé and the Monocle team for their support.
Here’s the second of three texts we accidentally missed from the project. Apologies to Sue Apfelbaum in New York for omitting her contribution.
I’ve tried, although not always successfully, to save at least one copy of all my favorite magazines over the years. I’ve held onto a few Grand Royals, several Artbytes, one Brill’s Content. Tragically I have no copies of Might. Fortunately I saved this one issue of Index, and I’m so glad I did.
