New Feature

In Issue Two of The Quarterly, we spent a day with tattooed male model, Billy Huxley.

If you haven’t seen us shouting about it via our social media channels yet, we’ve just added his very honest interview to our features page. Check it out here.

Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be adding some unpublished shots and extended interviews from Issue Three of The Quarterly so keep your eyes peeled for more sneaky previews.

Google Plus

As anyone who uses social media to promote their wares will know, Facebook has recently been flaunting it’s big hairy corporate dong and practically started forcing people to pay for advertising.

Obviously as an independent journal, we haven’t got a lot of disposable income so while we’ll keep posting new and interesting content on The Quarterly Facebook we’ve also decided to set up a Google Plus page which you can visit here: http://bit.ly/1jo5cXD

  18 days to go

It’s still difficult to comprehend we’re not even half way through our 30-day Kickstarter funding period and 222% funded but we’re not going to slack off. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Our goal with The Quarterly is to prove that you can get an independent publication in front of the eyes of as many people as the big dogs and we’re confident we’ll get there. One step at a time.

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’.

PREVIEW: THE QUARTERLY ISSUE 2 COVER

Posted by | Kickstarter | No Comments

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.
