MagCulture‘s Jeremy Leslie and New York-based editor Andrew Losowsky are putting together a special publication celebrating people’s favourite magazines. The compendium will be printed and sold with all profits going to help the US art director, Bob Newman, who was recently hospitalised. If you’d like to contribute, read on – you have until Monday June 3 as MC has just announced a deadline extension…

“It’s going to be a fast, one-off publication with the working title ‘My Favorite Magazine’, and all profits going to support Bob Newman (above), a great art director, true magaholic and the man behind Newmanology,” Leslie writes on magCulture. “You can read more about Bob’s situation here. The magazine will be published as a print-on-demand project through MagCloud.”

Here’s what you need to do to take part (the brief is grabbed from today’s magCulture post).

“Choose your favourite single magazine issue, and tell us about it. Any magazine, from any country, from any era. To join in, take 1-3 hi-res photos of the issue (no more than three, and at least one should be of the magazine cover) and write 100-500 words about your choice. Then zip and send it (or, if the images are too big to email, a link to download them) along with:

Magazine name
Country
Date of publication
Your Name
Job Title
City, Country
Web address
Twitter name

to: myfavouritemagazine@magculture.com

Deadline: Monday 3 June

We’ll compile all the responses and prepare the print-on-demand magazine.”

FAQs regarding the project are here on magCulture. We look forward to seeing the results and wish Bob well.
