Walter What ?
Walter is a magazine that has its roots in this quote from Walter Gropius (founder of the Bauhaus): “The ultimate goal of any creative project is construction! We must all return to craftsmanship because there is no such thing as professional art. There is no essential difference between the artist and the craftsman. Let us wish, conceive and create the new constructs of the future, that will embrace all in one single form.”
Walter is a quarterly magazine limited to 3,852 copies (1883 + 1969, dates of birth and death of Walter Gropius). The texts are in English and French.

Risks and challenges
Walter why ?
Even with the success of the first volume and all the subscription, doing a printed magazine is a new thing for me. Walter is not available on major newsstands, only in independent shops and book stores. But it took time to found sellers, time we dedicated to the content and the design of the magazine. We now miss money to print the second volume, hope this campaign will bring a new light on the project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
