After five years online, today (11 December) sees magCulture opening its first physical shop in Clerkenwell, London. With over 500 titles, the shop will offer the best magazines from across the globe, and “reflects the resurgence in innovative printed publications, with a focus on the new independents that have established themselves in recent years.”
Informed by the magCulture Journal, the shop will stock magazines as well as a few books about editorial design. The publications will be displayed using the 606 Universal Shelving Shelving System designed by Dieter Rams in 1960 and made by Vitsoe. Previously a newsagents, the Clerkenwell premises will also become the base for the magCulture Studio and become a hub for the team’s activities.
The magCulture shop is located on 270 St John Street, London.
