San Francisco, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/19/2014 -- With the release of CDs, Vinyl declined and all but disappeared. As music became even less physical with the rise of MP3, Vinyl suddenly returned, as people wanted a musical experience that was more than just auditory. Similarly, now journalism has become more ethereal across online presences, the print magazine is finding a new life just as people began to predict its death. One such example is NO TOFU that is relaunching their print edition in a premium format.
The new format will use full gloss 10x12" pages that will emphasize the impact of the magazine’s beautiful photography and unique visual aesthetic. Using a thicker paper stock and more pages, the quarterly release will transform the magazine into an event for collectors to enjoy a rich sensory experience.
The new issue, a quarterly billed as NO TOFU Spring/Summer 2014, features Grammy-nominated musician Shirley Manson of the band Garbage on the cover, in a stunning fashion editorial shot by celebrity photographer Zoey Grossman.
The issue also features exclusive interviews with the bands Warpaint, ADULT., Xiu Xiu, Yacht, Janet Weiss of Sleater-Kinney, Perfect Pussy, actress Isabelle Huppert, filmmakers Kelly Reichardt and Lee Krieger, artist Asger Carlsen and more to play directly to the passions of the online presence’s core readership.
The Spring/Summer issue is out the first week of April and is distributed in locations throughout the USA, updates about which will be shared throughout NO TOFU Social.
A spokesperson for NO TOFU explained, “The new print edition of NO TOFU represents our uncompromising commitment to a strong visual aesthetic, intelligent long-form articles and cutting edge photography by redefining the concept of what a quality magazine is. Every edition is a special collector’s edition, and aims to stimulate the senses in a whole variety of ways, not just the visual and intellectual material but the tactile quality of the paper, the sheen of the gloss, the weight of the pages- it creates a more enriching, holistic experience than any online slate could achieve.”
