COMMON MAGAZINE - ISSUE #1

COMMON is a biannual magazine for those with a creative bent and an inquisitive eye. It is founded on the desire to explore and document the basics of a rich life – the mix of people, work, leisure and everyday curiosities that inspire and fuel us.

The magazine consists of 120 pages of commissioned art and literature with articles on the artisans behind them. Content prioritizes the person and the process, which results in a publication that will not date; a hybrid between resource and magazine.

Issue #1 is complete and ready to publish, we just need to print and distribute. The target, along with funds we have already raised, will allow us to print 2000 copies on 120gsm offset uncoated stock with a 300gsm cover. Any funds raised over the target will go towards printing more copies!

The COMMON Magazine team for Issue #1 is:

Art editor: Mary Whalley
Literary editor: Lydia Wisheart
Creative editor: Matt Smith
Food editor: Mika Reilly

Design: Caspian Ievers

Contributors: Murray Crane, Mike Saunders, Joseph Slater, Willow Henderson, Justin McArthur.

Features
Christian Nyampeta, Sam Hartnett, Gabby O'Connor, Marcel Duchamp,
Craig Cliff, Kerry Donovan-Brown, Ross Woods, Vladimir Nabokov, Jamie McLellan (cover), Alexandra Dodds.

Illustrations: Devon Smith, Link Choi, Hugo Mathias, Saranna Drury, Jamie McLellan.
