Posted by

Update: Tuesday 2 June

The Shop
The magCulture Shop is open again, but for reduced hours, 12–5pm weekdays. We hope to see you soon! Note we are limiting customers to a maximum four at a time and providing gloves for browsers, and ask people to wear face masks and pay by contactless card where possible. Our online service still includes a click and collect option, and we’re still shipping globally on a daily basis.

Instagram Live
We will be continuing our series of Instagram live conversations, with Jeremy Leslie talking with a guest about magazines and publishing under the lockdown. Follow @magCulture on Instagram and subscribe to our email reminder.

Previous guests include Simon Esterson, Carol Montpart and Jack Self. See them all.

Tuesday 21 April

The Shop
We are now selling online only, with two options: our normal post/shipping service continues and despite one or two glitches is largely working as normal. Or you can pay online and collect from the shop. Collection times: 10am–2:30pm, weekdays only. Please note the distribution chain is slowly breaking down so some new editions are likely to be delayed. But we still have plenty in stock, and new arrivals each day.

Instagram Live
All live events have been postponed, but we are experimenting with Instagram Live. Each Tuesday and Thursday, Jeremy will be in conversation with a guest discussing magazines and publishing under the lockdown. Follow @magCulture on Instagram and subscribe to our email reminder.

Watch previous conversations.

We’re continuing to post news and reviews here on the Journal – keep reading!

The Podcast
Why not listen to the 19 episodes in the archive?

We’re proudly independent here at magCulture, but we also recognise we’re part of a broader ecosystem of other small, independent businesses including publishers, distributors and customers. Ourselves, the magazines we sell and everyone in the industry are threatened by a drop in sales as the Coronavirus pandemic sees more people working from home and observing self-isolation advice. But will there ever be a better time to enjoy your favourite magazines and discover new ones?

We hope you will support us, our friends at other magazine shops across the world, the publishers, printers, distributors and everyone involved in independent publishing. Keep on reading!
