ISSUE #38 is a real beauty, with stories pulled in from all over the world—a grand tour, in prose, of a dozen places you have perhaps neglected to visit, up to now! There is Ariel Dorfman in Paris, with one eye on Chile, Bisi Adjapon in Ghana, Chanan Tigay with the Israeli Arabs of the Desert Scouts Brigade, Nathaniel Rich exploring the Northeast Kingdom, Steven Millhauser somewhere far away, deep, deep in the woods, and new fiction from Dave Eggers—and more stories, besides, plus a comic and color photography and a cover that’ll earn you admiring glances in whatever environment you’re in. Don’t even think about missing this one.

About

SNAP! is a free and independent quarterly magazine dedicated to art, fashion and culture in Montreal. With an emphasis on emerging talent, SNAP! collaborates with a broad range of Montreal’s photographers, artists and writers, as well as creatives from abroad, to present a magazine that is original, smart and playful. Each issue examines a theme and is presented in a matte 10 x 14 inch full colour format. Copies are distributed free across downtown Montreal and are available for order online for the price of postage costs.

Founded in 2008 by Australians Hannah Byrne and Shayl Prisk, SNAP! was conceived as an alternative to the publications already proliferating the market in Montreal. Now in it’s third year SNAP! has won awards and accolades for its content, and has expanded it’s presence online with an active web community and over 200,000 virtual views of the publication.

SNAP! also works with contributors and guest artists to host events, such as the T-Shirt Exhibit with local collective French Fourch, and Rawspace, a group show presenting work by local artists across multiple mediums, including performance, painting, print and puppeteering. - SNAP!

About

In late 2009, we decided to begin work on a publication that explored areas of soccer that may sometimes be overlooked in the general media. What started out as a personal project combining our interest for both design and soccer has now become a unique product that, we believe, does not currently exist in the sports printing industry.Along the way, we have had the pleasure of working with and meeting many different personalities who share our enthusiasm for the game. Many are respected and recognised talents within the spheres of art, design and journalism and have all offered their skills with great pleasure.

Thanks to their help, and our driving vision to represent soccer in a non-clichéd fashion, we have been able to bring you The Green.


As lifelong Derby County and Birmingham City fans, it was important to make sure that the topics covered never strayed far from the core values of the game. The aim is not to alienate any of the football community, rather to offer an alternative approach and a more visually rich experience.

The Green uses an array of beautiful photography and illustration complimented by thoughtful and insightful articles which, we hope, will appeal to all fans across the football spectrum.

Most importantly, The Green is built on a passion for a subject that reaches every corner of the globe and will always stay true to the spirit of the world’s most popular sport. - The Green

About
DAMn° is an independent publication with an open-minded view on the interchangeable worlds of design, architecture and art. Exploring the blurred boundaries of creative forms and expressions, it is about people, products and places, tradition and originality, improvisation and inventiveness. The support of contributors from across the world offers a diverse and expansive mix of inquisitive and wilful stories - creative responses to contemporary culture with a distinctive visual and textual attitude.

DAMn°’s starting point is where most magazines stop, bringing editorial content beyond hype or conventional academic debate. Unafraid to link the personal and the political, the economic and the emotional, the stylistic and the social, DAMn° juxtaposes beauty and decay with an approach that is both thoughtful and playful. Well that’s the general idea anyway. - DAMNmagazine
