I don’t have as much time as I used to for standing in shops, flicking through mags, and in many cases very few interesting non-mainstream publications are stocked in magazine racks these day. That’s because many of the interesting magazines that used to have national distribution – through COMAG or similar – have folded. And of course, perversely, the internet means that small print run magazines can sell direct without needed to be in stores. But you still need to know that they exist. And that’s where a magazine subscription service like Stack functions so well.
It works by bringing together the world’s best independent magazines, and delivers them via post direct to your door. Over the past year or so I’ve been sent the most extraordinary and interesting collections of magazines by Stack: from cycling to food, children’s to style. I really can’t recommend it enough.
You can either pay yearly or monthly for your Stack deliveries. (You can cancel Stack at any time.) And if you already subscribe to or buy any of the Stack magazines you just let Stack know in advance so they send you something else. j
