Issue 2 of The Quarterly explores the relationship between life and culture

Posted by | The Quarterly | No Comments

The team of volunteers behind The Quarterly announced today, the crowdfunded second issue of their experimental photographic publication is now on sale to the world at The Quarterly website.

Three months in the making, the 144-page creative journal features exclusive work from some of the world’s most talented photographers and writers on a high-paper stock, advert-free platform.

The Quarterly’s experimental approach to publishing uses an profit sharing model to showcase entirely exclusive photography and writing based around a pre-selected theme. The first issue released in June this year, looked at the subject of ‘censorship’ and issue 2 examines the relationship between ‘life and culture’.

The launch night will give fans of The Quarterly a chance to meet the amazingly talented writers and photographers who contributed to the issue, and a chance to pick the brains of the team behind The Quarterly.


The brand new three floor BOX studio in Shoreditch will exhibit a selection of photographs from the magazine and advance print copies of The Quarterly will be also be on hand for guests to buy and flick through, before the rest of the world gets their hands on them.

The team behind The Quarterly Kickstarter video will also be filming the many drunken hilarities which are bound to occur during the night, and as sponsors of the event, the good people at Brewdog and Bondi Beer will be donating enough free beer to make sure no one goes thirsty. They’ll also be a selection of nibbles and live music from four unannounced London DJ’s. 

There are still a few spaces left on the guest list, so if you would like to attend please email an RSVP to naeem@thecreativebook.com, tweet @_TheQuarterly, or join our Facebook event page. Hurry though, places are filling up fast.

It’s all over and we’ve smashed it. Our 30 day Kickstarter came to an end this morning and we are gobsmacked to see you guys have collectively pledged 137% of our funding goal.Screen shot 2013-10-09 at 10.02.38

Saying thank you really doesn’t express our gratitude but thank you, thank you, thank you.

Massive high-five to our final backers

Jennifer Moreno, Dave Alexander, Levi Daniels, Andrew, Jordon Ferguson, Richard Mountford, Ronald Figueroa, Matthieu Herblin, Kevin Meredith, Gary Jones, Justine Anweiler, Jerome, Naeem Alvi, Craig McCartney, Jennifer Wallis, DELAIRON, Sian Lidgate, Katherine Kong, Ivana Bilic, Mark Salmon, Tommy Francis,Ellen Appleton, Paul Hayday


When we decided to launch this campaign for issue 2 of The Quarterly we entered into a world none of us really knew anything about. After weeks of research, late night phone calls and countless emails we gritted our teeth, clicked launch and went for it.

TheQuarterly Issue 2 off to the printers

Issue 2 of The Quarterly being sent to the printers this morning

It’s been a hugely eye-opening experience and we’ve honestly been blown away by the support of our fans, our contributors, and the creative industry. With every tweet, like, or mention in the pub, you’ve all helped us spread the word and helped The Quarterly to grow.

As well as promoting the hell out of this campaign, our contributors and production team have also been hard at work over the last few weeks to finalise everything for issue 2. The final tweaks have now been made and we’re delighted to announce that issue 2 is currently on its way to the printers. We’ll be dropping some previews over the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled. Honestly, it’s going to be awesome and you won’t be disappointed.

To everyone who backed our kickstarter we’ll be sending out emails to sort out the details for your rewards, so make sure you keep checking your inbox. Depending on where you are in the world, you should receive your print copy of issue 2 in either late October or early November. As this is a little later than we expected, we’ve also thrown in a massive poster for all of our Kickstarter backers, as your happiness is our priority.

To those of you who want a copy of Issue 2 but missed the kickstarter, we’ll be stocking issue 2 on The Quarterly website soon enough.

The Launch Night

Again, our sincerest thanks to everyone who backed this project. Our team are working hard to pull everything together for the Issue 2 launch night. If you’re free from 7pm – midnight on Friday 25th October we’d love to meet you all in London for a jolly good knees up. We’ll email you all more information as we pull everything together, but just be sure to save the date. It’s going to be a good night.

Our original plan was to use the event to launch Issue 2 and launch our exhibition simultaneously, but we’ve decided to delay the exhibition side of things for a few weeks so we can give it the time it deserves to make it amazing. Of course, you guys will all be the first people on the guest list.

Again, our sincerest thanks to everyone involved in this campaign.

With 6 days to go, our Kickstarter is now 114% and we’re amazed to see people continue to pledge their support. 

With our printing deadline just around the corner, our writers and photographers around the world are working hard to make all of the last minute tweaks and changes to their respective projects, and we’re beyond excited for you all to see the finished project.

While we finalise everything, we thought we’d give you a sneak preview of one of our two covers for Issue 2. Yep, you heard right. Two covers. Each completely different but still as awesome as the other.

So without further ado, BOOM…

Our feature shoot and feature editorial for Issue 2 of The Quarterly explores the subject of modern tattoo culture; it’s current rise in popularity and the role of tattoos in the fashion world.

We speak to tattoo models, tattoo shop owners, tattoo artists, and one illustrator which people have unexpectedly started paying to design tattoos for them.

Trust us, it’s epic.

If you’d like to pre-order a copy of Issue 2 you still have 6 days left to do so on The Quarterly Issue 2 Kickstarter.

To everyone who has backed our project so far, the campaign will continue to run for 9 more days and we will be in touch shortly afterwards regarding your chosen reward. We believe in The Quarterly, but we really didn’t expect to reach our goal so quickly so this amazing news has come at a time when we’re all working our socks off to pull everything together for the Issue 2 deadline.

Rest assured, it’s the best issue 2 of The Quarterly the world has ever seen.

For anyone who was hoping to pledge, but hasn’t yet had the chance, the campaign is still running so you’ve got another 9 days to get involved.

Again, our sincerest thanks to everyone who has supported this project so far. Please keep spreading the word.

You are EPIC.

We’re 3 days into our Kickstarter Campaign and thanks to the support of the creative community we’ve already raised 28% of our funding goal.

Check out The Quarterly Kickstarter HERE.

Everyday on Kickstarter brings new pangs of excitement which remind us why we started The Quarterly in the first place. Your constant support and enthusiasm to make a publication which does things differently keeps us working our socks off to make it happen.


HUGE thanks to our newest backers:

In just two days all 15 of our earlybird rewards have sold out. Of course, that’s not to say the rest of our rewards aren’t worth backing. In fact, all of them offer a huge saving on our retail price and the more pledges we receive the more copies of Issue 2 we can print and show off around the world.

Our campaign has had more online success in the last 24 hours. Our blog post on The Creative Book blog about how we are promising to donate 5% of our total profits from Issue 2 back into future Kickstarter Projects is now featured on the front page of www.kicktraq.com. If you’ve got 15 seconds spare, check out this Instagram edit by Black Market Visuals. And, our features editor, Naeem Alvi, sat down with the good people of Victoria Line for a video interview to explain why The Quarterly does things differently.

Please keep tweeting, sharing and backing The Quarterly Issue 2 Kickstarter. 26 days to go!

You are AWESOME.
