PUSS PUSS is a new stylish publication for culture-, fashion-, music- and cat lovers.

About this project

WHAT IS PUSS PUSS: THE IDEA

It is a well known fact that cats rule the internet. Now it's time for them to make the cross over into print with a beautiful publication that dispels the 'frumpy crazy cat lady' stereotype and puts cats in the stylish and beautiful space they belong!

You will find no naff cat outfits or cat food advice in PUSS PUSS, instead beautiful photography, illustration, intelligent writing, interviews and more by established as well as up-and-coming creatives from around the globe. And lots of cats of course!

PUSS PUSS will be a 'book zine' so something between a book and a magazine in feel. It will be similar to a book in format (around 170mm x 240mm), approximately 100 pages printed in full colour throughout with a textured cover and foil embossed logo for a tactile feel. It will be a beautiful object that you will hopefully want to keep and collect and that will look lovely on your bookshelf and coffee table.

WHAT DOES PUSS PUSS WRITE ABOUT?

  • FASHION & LIFESTYLE
  • CULTURE & ART
  • FILM & MUSIC
  • PERSONALITIES & INTERVIEWS
  • NATURE & ENVIRONMENT

CONTENT FOR THE LAUNCH ISSUE

We have worked long and hard on creating engaging and beautiful content for the launch issue. We flew to Beijing to meet the artist Ai Weiwei who has around 30 cats living with him at his compound, shot a fashion story with a top team working for some of the best glossies around the world (photography by Jon Gorrigan, model: Anja Konstantinova, styling by Magda Bryk, make up by Johanna Banach, hair by Noriko Takayama), the artist Jean Jullien has illustrated the essay on celebrity culture (you can get the illustrations as limited edition prints in the rewards), the photographer Rasha Kahil has shot several London creatives like the Vogue UK creative director Jaime Perlman and artist Rob Montgomery with his girlfriend Lucy Newman at home with their cats, we interviewed Vicki Murdoch of Silken Favours (photographed by Max Knight) who has also designed a limited edition silk scarf that you can get as a reward and much much more! We are also working with animal rights charities that we will help promote in PUSS PUSS.

Everything is ready to go, we now just need your support to start the production!

YOU CAN MAKE PUSS PUSS HAPPEN!

We are very excited about all the great content that we have and can't wait to share it with you! There are a variety of costs associated with a project of this size, and your support will allow us to:

  • Set up the magazine and produce the first issue 
  • Pay for the printing costs using top range materials for a beautiful and tactile result
  • Commission photographers, writers & illustrators for the second issue 

And here is a picture of a cute kitten for no reason

TIMELINE

 THANK YOU!

Risks and challenges

We know from experience how much hard work goes into producing a new magazine and everyone involved is very passionate about making this project happen.

The budget is very realistic and represents the minimum needed to set up the magazine and produce the first issue.

Everything is ready, we now only need the necessary funding to start the production! If the campaign is successful the printing will start immediately so the magazine will be ready for postage in early June.

We are still tweaking the layouts here and there so the final design might be slightly different to what you see here but the style and look will stay the same.
