Facing Pages 2014

Make Magazines Not War

Facing Pages 2014 - 28 Maart till 6 April 2014

The past two years many new magazines were published, new platforms arose, re-brands were made and the variety of the magazine world increased even more. This unlimited stream of beautiful mags made by talented people is an

everlasting inspiration to us, and the reason why we wanted organised Facing Pages 2014.

This year’s biennale consisted of a symposium, exhibition, various mag releases, DIY zine machine, a pop-up store and parties, with which we spread some Magazine Love to the world.

We are very proud to have hosted 23 of the best magazine makers we’ve ever met, to have exhibited more than 200 of worlds best and most beautiful magazines and that more than 1.700 people visited our event.
Just remember: Print is not dead. It just smells funny. We love it!
We hope to see you all again for the fourth edition of Facing Pages in April 2016!

A world of independent publications that are hard to find in regular stores and to interesting to remain hidden. Both Joost and William are very passionate have a strong urge to share their knowledge and show the world the beautiful, inspiring and intriguing things that are going on in this amazing scene.
