Walter magazine . Volume 1 . Available on August 24th

posted in Shop updates | Print  at 9.40 AM from La maison papillons . Montclus (near Barjac) / France listening Ben Harper

walter magazine available at www.walter-magazine.com

 

Grab a magazine is totally different to make a blog. For this blog, that I started 9 years now, I find a project that inspires me and I share it with you. Simple ! The presented creative are in 99% of cases very pleased that I speak of them or their work.

For a paper magazine the approach is different. There should be a subject (this is not a simple "portfolio" magazine), see if there are enough pictures available, then contact creative ... And some just do not have time to send pictures or participate. Suddenly, the first issue of Walter takes much longer than advertised. But knowing this, we have already started working on the next issue!

 

Among the other elements that justify the delay (I say justifies, no apologies ...) is the fact of wanting to make a bilingual magazine, in English but also in French, and want to print it in France as locally as possible . This is why even if the layout of the 180 pages Walter is more than in phase correction, we prefer announced August 24 for its release, because we prefer to advance necessary printing deadlines THE magazine need to be as nice as what we have in mind!

 

Thank you all for your support, all of which are participations in the crowdfunding sent from August 24, followed by pre-orders on the site. Here are more pages to (try) to make you wait, and thank you again for your support!

It is rare that I can not find some time for this blog, but the last few weeks have been particularly busy.

 

For Walter magazine, you are likely to ask for news, when sending the first numbers is expected for several weeks. We decided to postpone the release in late August for technical and artistic choices. Indeed, some items can not be finalized because I can not talk about the project if people do not want to! A magazine must be done with photos in high definition, a coherent story and an editorial line, and if people do not answer emails or send material, we need to adapt... I will detail all this in a future post, but the release date is now August 24, 2015 to to avoid the "pause" summer holiday. Thank you for your patience.

 

Last week, I made "in real life" what I am virtually doing on this site: share what inspires me! I met Clint Harvey when I was in Australia for a conference in 2010, I made a letterpress workshop in his design school in Brisbane. We become friends after 5 minutes, passionate about typography and letterpress printing! We see each other again few years later to visit a friend of his... which prints on a boat not far from Paris (see article).

 

When Clint told me he come to France for some days, we plan a smal "French type tour", and I made him go around the cities and places that inspire me! Started in the south where I live, we ended our trip at the Museum of Printing in Lyon and flea market (that I will detail in Walter 1!) We imagined doing this kind of round with more people next year, if we have enough "crazy type people" interested and someone to organize the administrative part ... If you are interested in this "French Type Tour", contact me!

 

Then, on Sunday I was in the street when  I cross paths with Ben Harper doing skateboard! I call him and we talked a few minutes! I had no battery in my phone, which saved me from an embarrassing selfie, but I'm still amazed by the weak probability to cross someone you admired as that!

 

Trust the Unexpected!
