‘The Ninth-Best Magazine in the World’*
So, what exactly is Whalebone magazine? Well, in their own words: 'It started with printing T-shirts and an old van delivering magazines around Montauk, NY, and went from there... Well, it kind of is still there.' What started as a 'fun summer project' has now been going for seven good years. Each issue is themed, a little bit random, and wonderfully lighthearted. This issue, The Comedy Issue, is precisely that but with an added helping of lololol.
*Someone once called Whalebone 'possibly the world’s ninth-best publication', but the team behind it like to think they're 'just a community of like-minded individuals who all believe that being delightfully disoriented and putting some fun into the world isn’t the worst way to spend some time.' We concur.
