New Magazine | Special Request | OUT NOW
The newest and most exciting quarterly culture magazine is here, and it’s called “Special Request“. Priced at £9 and distributed internationally, 2,500 copies of this new publication will be available in independent bookshops, boutiques, galleries and online. With a different focus every issue the first edition is based around food and features articles on and by Geoff Dyer, Jonathan Meades, Sam Lipsyte, Jacob Holdt, GZA, Nuno Mendes, Thomas Bayrle, Coolio, Jessica Ennis, John C. Reilly, Daisy Lowe, Stanley Donwood, Florence Welch. For all those interested in the technical ins and outs it looks and feels a little bit like this: 270 x 198mm Portrait, 96pp + 4pp, Cover on 400gsm Offset, Text on: 120gsm offset and 1 x 16pp sections on 170gsm silk – a very classy publication – it has to be said. Big thumbs up.
Personal favourite is the “In Bread With” pages which feature desired personal favourite sandwhich combinations from the likes of GZA from the Wu YTang and Olympic medal winning Jessica Ennis – a great contrast of characters with an even greater contrast of sandwhich filling choices. We really like what we’re seen of Special Request here at Concrete PR and hats off to the creators Paul Sethi, Marc Sethi and Tom Viney, we’re already looking forward to the second edition.
