No sooner do I bemoan a lack of distributor imagination than one saunters in and does something marvellous. Motto is a Swiss magazine distributor whose blog has been mentioned in posts passim; it has just opened its first physical store in Berlin (open Saturdays only, it seems), and to celebrate has a week of special magazine presentations from Mono.Kultur, Spike, Piktogram, Gagarin and Kilimanjaro, starting today (Dec 16th). Screenings, talks, the unveiling of Mono.Kultur’s new box set, and much more, all in a warmly wooden surrounding. Can’t wait to visit.
Here we have one of the futures of magazines: bespoke spaces for bespoke mags. More, please.
