Excerpt Mag Launch

Gone are the days were magazines were the domain of a select few, who decided what we should read, what we should want to see and what we should buy.

The online independent publication is fast becoming an equal player across all magazine genres, from fashion to food, and one representing the artists and creatives of the world in Australia is recently released quarterly, Excerpt magazine.

The brain-child of editor Amy Marjoram, Excerpt always looks to answer the question “What are you willing to show us?”

Issue 4, titled Under the Covers, does just this by taking a peek inside the bedrooms of twelve artists from across the globe. Co-editor Devon Ackermann says that peering into a person’s most private space has garnered quite varied results, from playful, aloof to considered and sterile.

Placing itself as a breath of fresh air, “celebrating difference and the not-so-typical glossy, clean conformist images we usually see”, Excerpt highlights the uniqueness of independent publishing and showcases the exceptional talent of Australia’s most creative minds, without subjecting readers to advertising.

Excerpt magazine is holding its official launch party this Thursday August 30 @6pm,
Horse Bazaar, 397 Little Lonsdale Street Melbourne.
