INQUE SPOT: Talk about taking the long view. Dan Crowe, the publisher of Port magazine and a Granta book editor, has teamed with Matt Willey, the former art director of The New York Times Magazine and a partner at Pentagram, to create a literary, art and design-focused magazine that will come out once a year for the next 10 years — and then stop.
Each issue of Inque will have a limited print run, zero advertising, and will rely on a (relatively) hefty subscription price. Early subscribers will pay 45 pounds for the first issue, and the books will cost 55 pounds thereafter. While there may be no digital element to the magazine, Crowe and Willey are promoting and advance-selling the first issue via Kickstarter at inquemag.com starting July 21.
The launch issue includes work by creatives as diverse as Brian Eno, Chimamanda
