Dear beautiful and bizarre friends,
It is that super exciting time of the publication cycle, when I get finally my hands on the advanced copies of the coming issue of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine. This time it was extra special, because we are working with an amazing new printer in Canada on a completely redesigned magazine! The same amazing beautiful bizarre aesthetic, but lots more and varied content – you can now sit and read it with a coffee or wine for days and fully immerse yourself in the voices and stories of 40+ creatives.
We have also changed the stock and cover treatment, size and shape! The new Beautiful Bizarre Magazine is larger and almost square in shape. The cover is thick and coated in a gorgeous high gloss which makes the riot of colours in Del Kathryn Barton’s work really pop! Plus of course if feels divine. The internal stock is a bit thinner which has enabled us to bring down the price of each issue, and cost of shipping both within the US and intentionally. Making Beautiful Bizarre Magazine now affordable and accessible to everyone! The 140 page beautifully printed magazine still feels hefty and wonderful in my hands. The litho printing and artwork reproduction by our new printers is exceptional [my iPhone snaps don’t do it justice]! I am sure you will love it as much as I do!
The process to evolve and re-launch Beautiful Bizarre Magazine has been a very challenging and incredibly busy 14 months for the whole Beautiful Bizarre Magazine. But as you will see, it was well worth the time and effort! A brand new improved Beautiful Bizarre Magazine now just US$14.99 – and I cant wait to share it with the world.
This week we are working with our amazing new Distributors. They are situated in the United States, to ensure our largest readership and the large majority of our stockists get their copies first! And that shipping is quick, effective and super cheap in the United States and internationally. Our USA Subscribers and Stockists will receive their magazines by 1 March. International orders will take an additional week/two depending on your location in the world.
Thank you again to all the amazing people that have supported Beautiful Bizarre Magazine by purchasing a 12 or 24 month print subscription over the last few months in the lead up to our re-launch [Issue 020 | March 2018]. As an independent publisher your subscriptions keep Beautiful Bizarre Magazine going, enabling us to continue to support and champion the arts community and countless creatives across the globe. I am extremely grateful to all our readers who have invested in a subscription and by doing so allow me to follow my passion of publishing inspiring content while sharing the work of incredibly talented creatives.
If you haven’t yet grabbed a 12 or 24 month print subscription you can do so here for under US$50 [20% discount on cover price] and have Beautiful Bizarre Magazine delivered to your door each March, June, September and December! I am pleased to say that out of the huge print run we did for this special issue we only have a few copies of Issue 020 left, so if you would like your print subscription to begin with Issue 020 I highly recommend you shop quickly while stocks last.
In return for your support I promise to help ignite your creativity through Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, our web and social media platforms. And provide you with insights into the magazine publishing process and my own thoughts and journey as Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine.
If you follow our social media you will note the count down has begun! Only 6 days until the release of issue 020. From 1 March Beautiful Bizarre Magazine will be available through our Stockists and our webstore while stocks last.
Finally what would a re-launch be with a celebration! I am very much looking forward to the VIP #MakeArtTheHero Beautiful Bizarre Magazine re-launch event, being hosted by the wonderful folks at Beinart Gallery in Melbourne early next month! I cant wait to share this special milestone with all my local Australian creatives, gallerists and the media. If you are an Australian creative and we have accidentally missed you from our invitee list, please send me an email and I will forward you a VIP invitation. Complimentary copies of the March issue will be available to our guests.
