A new template turns one
Warrior magazine celebrates its first anniversary Sunday with a DJ-driven party in Montreal. Warrior (despite a name that conjures up aboriginal manhood) is a 5,000 controlled circ cultural magazine published by Média Guerrier. Besides congratulating them on their first birthday, we can do no better job of describing the magazine than they do themselves:
Warrior supersedes the inherently disposable nature of the contemporary magazine and presents an alternative to the ersatz writing ubiquitous in the current market. Unabashedly boasting challenging, intriguing text, draped in a fluid aesthetic beauty, Warrior offers a new template: Magazine as book, book as zine, and zine as supraspatial community message-board.
