Well, this is awesome. Brian Adams of Cool and Collected has been planning a really-for-real magazine project and just launched a Kickstarter campaign to get it off the ground. Brian is an excellent graphic designer and obviously knows how to lay out a magazine. Look at those comps, they look gorgeous!
The magazine will cover collectors and their collections. Brian has a knack for finding people with awesome collections, and is also the head hauncho of The League of Extraordinary Bloggers, so he shouldn’t have a problem finding a steady stream of contributors. I think the idea of a magazine for collectors funded and created by collectors sounds great, and I can’t wait to read it. Here’s the Kickstarter video:
I can’t recommend backing this project enough. There are plenty of cool rewards, whether you just want a magazine or if you want to advertise. Check out this post on Cool and Collected to see more examples of the amazing job Brian has done laying this magazine out, and I’m sure you’ll jump on the bandwagon as quickly as I did.
Let’s get this project rolling so the issues can keep coming.
