blog

We don’t believe there’s enough useful online information and discussion about magazines. The Magalleria blog provides opinion, reviews, interviews and a bit of news about what’s going on in print. We also genuinely want to know more about the people who love and buy magazines, rather than just the views of magazine makers. This is something we want to develop in 2018.

She Shreds

Sometimes magazines are made because someone wants to speak but doesn’t know what to say – or worse – has nothing to say. She Shreds has a voice and a clear-cut message: despite doubt, women guitarists and bassists exist. It seems an absurd statement to make, but the prevalence of the constant disregard and exclusion of women musicians has ignited this magazine into existence. And the fire is fierce.

Four&Sons

Goofy and fluffy, prim and trim, flighty and slim - dogs are an endless marvel to humans. Whether they instil love or indifference, they are pervasive within our culture. We caught up with the Creative Director of Four&Sons, Marta Roca, to talk all things dogs. Now on their eighth issue, this Australia-based, pooch-powered magazine is winning followers everywhere.

Autodidact

We’ve always stocked a lot of art magazines. Possibly far too many, and in the middle of last year, after we worked out how many we sold in relation to the focus we put on them and the space they took up in Magalleria, we decided to move them somewhere else. We put interior design magazines in their place. Suddenly people started asking for them again and buying them in improved numbers. By the end of the year we’d pretty much moved them back where they were.

Who's Buying?

Meet Eleanor

We’re always being asked who our customers are. We’re still trying to work that out, but from day one we realised that the people who buy from us are usually well informed, often opinionated and, it goes without saying, very tasteful. So we just have to quiz them. Today we're meeting Eleanor...

News & Opinion

Would you pay £25 for a magazine?

As we head to the end of the first month of the new year I think I’ve now read enough reflection on the past one – all that ‘best of 2018’ stuff, the various lists and all the expert predictions for what’s ahead. It used to be mostly editorial filler but the staggering proliferation of new media channels means there’s now a surplus of opinion on just about everything. I therefore limit myself to a few trusted authorities on music and the tiny handful of sage observers who regularly update us about print stuff. When it comes to magazines it seems there’s much useful discussion about design and subject matter, but it’s essentially always rattling around the same corridors. It would nice if someone opened the door marked ‘What magazine buyers think’.

Mushpit

The lovechild of journalist Bertie Brandes and stylist Charlotte Roberts, Mushpit is full of nervous, restless energy and good humour. To the untrained eye, it appears a cacophony of bad Photoshop, peculiar typography and garish design, but look a little deeper and you’ll find that this is not trash, but very clever treasure.
