Xalt, which says it is the first exclusively Canadian tattoo, body modification and alternative lifestyle magazine, has announced it will launch as a quarterly in spring 2012. No word on circulation or advertising rates. A one-year subscription will be $13.95.
Focusing on Canadian tattoo artists, body modification artists and alternative lifestyle, Xalt will be the first print magazine of its kind, shining the spotlight on Canada’s unique talent and striving to exalt artforms often considered to be fringe [said a release from publisher and editor April Cross].
From issue to issue, Xalt will offer readers - through in-depth interviews and stunning photography – an inside look at established and up-and-coming artists, as well as give them a taste of alt lifestyles, such as roller derby, punk etc. Also included will be fashion and lifestyle products.
