FIFTY8 Magazine’s launch in 2013 is paving the way for a new chapter of content and publishing. We are interested in exposing the essence or identity of a subject through eliminating all non-essential forms, features or concepts in a style in which the simplest elements are used to create the maximum effect. Ours will be a voice of fewer words and powerful digital imagery from architecture, art, design, fashion, film, luxury, music and technology.
Adult is a magazine of new erotics. In photography, conversation, art, criticism, essays and original reporting, it returns to the first meaning of "radical"--the roots of things, traced below the skin. In Adult no. 1, we discover sex in the novels of Gordon Merrick, steal Rachel Kushner's emails, and spy on masturbating friends, shot by Kava Gorna. We profile three maverick filmmakers from three generations: Ryan Coogler, Deborah Kampmeier and David Cronenberg. Katherine Bernard builds a shrine to Erica Jong's Fear of Flying, now 40 years old, and Wangechi Mutu, the Kenyan-American artist, shares her dark materials. Various kinds of bodies are portrayed in photographs by Nancy Reyes, Flora Hanitijo and Henrik Purienne, and in fictions by Dodie Bellamy, Tamara Faith Berger, Kristopher Jansma and more. Our written features cover the ends of an empire, from the last great toy factory to the national nightmare that is Florida. Plus, Adult delivers a preview of Mia Schwartz and Chris Randle's very graphic novella, Charivari.
“I [Sarah Nicole Prickett] wanted Adult to feel like a secret,” she said
about the quarterly magazine, which will hit select newsstands,
including Marc Jacobs’s bookstore, BookMarc, and the Museum of Modern
Art, in mid-November. Despite the “Not for sale to minors” disclaimer on
its cover, Prickett isn’t shy about hoping the young and curious find
it, even if they have to steal it. “I want to go on the record as being
very pro-minors,” she said. “I love teen girls. I wish I could have been
one — I was awful at it. The best I can hope for is the feeling I had
as a teen, which is that I couldn’t wait to get older. I want people to
feel like that until they’re 70.”
Prickett, a Canadian writer who
moved to New York last year, describes the feel of Adult as distinctly
American. That’s thanks in no small part to its creative director,
Berkeley Poole, who daylights as the designer for Visionaire and V
$20; artbook.com, select newsstands and indie bookstores mid-November.

Graydon Carter says in our cover story: “A magazine is a great
invention. You take the best things you can find from around the world,
you put together great stories, great photography and you give it to the
consumer for $5. They can pass it on to somebody else; they can recycle
it. If they loose it they can buy another one. It’s available
everywhere, and we’ll send it to their door for less. That’s a pretty
good deal. Magazines are a very viable part of our lives and will be for
as long as people are alive.”

As far as Graydon's quote. He seems to be leading his thoughts towards print. I want to break apart the quote, and see what applies to print, and what also, to digital:
1)"A magazine is a great
Conceptually yes. And that concept is applicable to digital, as well.
2) "You take the best things you can find from around the world,
you put together great stories, great photography and you give it to the
consumer for $5."
Also applicable to digital.
3) They can pass it on to somebody else;
Again he's referencing print, and physically passing it on to someone else. But on the digital front, if designed correctly, social sharing is within the vision of "pass it on". Though on digital, publishers don't seem to have gone along with passing on the digital issue you bought, for free to a friend.
4) "they can recycle
5) If they loose it they can buy another one.
Not so easy to buy old, out of print, issues. In digital you don't need to worry about loosing it. It lives on forever.
6) "It’s available
If he's referencing print, that's not true. Print magazine's are not available everywhere. In digital that possibility of "everywhere" is more achievable.
7) "and we’ll send it to their door for less."
Less then, and faster, than digital?
8) That’s a pretty
Print is really not. Cost of paper and trees. Delivery time. Terrible view of double page image. Deterioration of the paper. Physical storage. Lack of animation/video. Error corrections. etc... The digital plus' far out-weight the print.
9) "Magazines are a very viable part of our lives and will be for
as long as people are alive."
The concept of a magazine, yes. Print magazine is anyone's guess. Human's are terrible at predicting the future.
