We’re very excited to announce the release of an all new ‘special’ edition of Fused Magazine in tangible loveliness. It has been a while since our last printed edition of Fused and while we’ve been busy producing our little Area Culture Guides we have missed our faithful friend and think now is the perfect time to say a big HELLO.
In May 2012 it will be exactly 12 years since Fused first hit the streets and we have decided that now is the time to bring it out of hibernation.
This special edition of Fused will be a little different from previous issues: There will be more pages (100), it will be printed on different stock, it won’t be distributed for free anymore but in magazine stores, art galleries, fashion stores and boutiques. However rest assured the magazine will still include the same beautiful illustrations, stunning photography, quirky detail and great articles it is renowned for.
Friends! We need your help to bring it to life!
Fused has touched, helped, highlighted and spotted talent and made lots of friends along the way. We’ve seen bands go from zero fans to headlining festivals, we’ve helped writers publish their first works, photographers their first shoots and illustrators their first commissions. If you love print like we do, love finding out about new talent and emerging trends and culture then we’re asking you to pre-order your way to magazine-wonder by supporting this edition.
Why we need your support.
We would like people to pre-order and help via Crowdfunder as we won’t be taking many (if any) adverts for this special edition. Selling advertisements is the usual way we would fund our publications but due to the celebratory nature of the Volume 02 launch we’d like it to offer it as a ‘collectors’ limited edition.
We hope that the offers of what people receive in return mean that along with your generous support you’ll also receive something that you will keep and get enjoyment and pleasure from.
Any help you can offer will go straight in to the making of this milestone edition. The £1500 we are requesting is just part of the cost to help finish the print production for the launch in May.
