Annual, for ten years only
First publishd 2021
Editor: Dan Crowe
Design and art direction: Matt Willey
To be published annually for ten years and then killed off, Inque is Dan Crowe and Matt Willey’s dream project, a heavyweight literary/arts mag finally here after several years of development. The two first worked together on Zembla in the early noughties and continue to publish Port today.
A successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year means they have been able to commission new work from a seriously impressive list of writers (Margaret Atwood, Ben Lerner, Kae Tempsest and Naoise Dolan to name a few) as well as photographers and artists (Giles Revell, Seymour Chwast, Christopher Anderson).
This material arrives in a satisfyingly heavyweight format: large but not too large, and impressively timeless in design and production.
On the Journal:
‘Does Inque deliver on the bold promises of its fundraising campaign? Yes it does—there’s nothing like it out there. It’s the biggest, bravest magazine launch of 2021, indie or mainstream, and establishes a new benchmark for others…’
Matt Willey discusses plans for Inque with Jeremy Leslie (from summer 2020).
