Publishing’s pirates

Magazines are beautiful, challenging, stimulating, provocative, experimental and dynamic.

You’d never notice from a glance at your local newsstand.

When the early publishing pioneers discovered the desire for their publications they went to extraordinary lengths to meet it. They went outside of the system to employ legions of delivery men, armies of paper boys and they created a whole new business: the newsagent.

They were the pirates of their day.

Those companies aren’t pirates anymore, they are the captains of their industry. Independent publishers are the pirates now.

Our new company, Iceberg Press, aims to sink a few big ships.
