Fathers #4: Warbonnets and Batman
Fathers Quarterly is a Polish magazine that’s just released its fourth issue. Its timeless set-up, both formally and graphically, make it as much as a book as it is a quarterly magazine. Printed in two editions - in Polish or in English - it holds true to slow journalism in its purest form: with fatherhood as central key, it ventures into culture, travel and lifestyle.
Our evening with Tristan Rodgers from MC1R Magazine

Interview with Ben Smith from Shelf Heroes
Independent movie magazines, there are not too many but there are a few good ones. Shelf Heroes is one of our favourites. Every issue is about one letter from the alphabet, issue E just came out and has articles on The Elephant Man, Eraserhead, Enter the Void and The Exorcist. The magazine is full of illustration and is clearly made by a movie addict.
We asked editor and creative director Ben Smith some questions about his fantastic magazine.
L’Instant Parisien #2
L’Instant Parisien was imagined as a concentration of Parisian life on paper. “Each issue presents a collection of moments, chronicles of Parisian lives, and stories of men and women who exhibit how Paris has transformed before our eyes.” Over 250 pages, printed on a nice matt paper with beautiful full-color photography, the magazine is a journal of Parisian life. An epitome of French romanticism, urban realism and modern gentrification.
Our evening with Seb Emina from The Happy Reader
Last week Euan Monaghan from Structo interviewed editor-in-chief Seb Emina from The Happy Reader in the shop. The night before Seb won the award for Best Edior at the Stack Awards in London.
We had a nice full shop of magazine lovers including Fantastic Man founder and editor Gert Jonkers and MacGuffin's Ernst van der Hoeven who won the Stack Magazine of the Year Award.
