File Magazine / Issue #1

File Magazine is without question the coolest publication to show up on my doorstep thus far. I love large-format mags and this bi-annual publication outta the UK is roughly 12″ x 15.5″. The cover is a thick card stock and the inside pages are actually newsprint, but don’t come across cheap like you’d think. The page layouts are beautifully minimal – this thing is a real work of art. This first issue comes with a limited print by Geoff McFetridge and a DVD with over two hours of shorts films, music videos and interviews. In short, this magazine is legit!

  • ps my arm is not that fat, its the fish-eye haha

  • Interesting how you can see the printing on the other side of the page. Or is that the lighting causing that? Makes it look like newsprint, but it must be nicer than that, right?

  • Sam

    I think the newsprint pages compliments the sturdy cover. They have a certain quality when put together.

  • dude, u have the coolest freebies man

  • sitting on our coffee table – damn good looking…haven’t gotten to the dvd yet but Xavier says there are a few I need to see.

    • you need to watch “The Archive” short documentary on the world’s largest record collection. beautiful little piece.

  • Robert B Cooper

    What kind of paper is that. It cant be Newsprint. Is it?

    Beautiful work. Excellent typography.

  • anon

    I know this is a pretty damn wierd thing to say, but on your “sticker on your face” picture your arms look really nice =D

  • how would one go about ordering an issue/subscription??

    • i believe you can order if off the site!

    • ah… of course! sorry, it took me a minute to realize there was little yellow underlining beneath the mag’s name… thanks! love your site… i check it often (like every day, yo)

      • hah yea looking back on it, yellow wasn’t the greatest choice, but i always link to the thing i’m talking about.

  • Ahhh absoutely wicked. I would kill to go through all the ridiculously sick things you have gotten for free and I would also bet that you’ve made some pretty awesome purchases over the years as well. Cool coffee table books are always the best gifts and make for endless inspiration.

    • i am starting to amass a little collection, i am really bad about getting things framed there a few prints i’ve received that need to be up on a wall.

  • andy

    Awesome. I didn’t realize that the format was so large until seeing it in context of you (not fat) arm 🙂

    I’m hoping to order a copy before they sell out.
