Interview publisher Brant Publications is set to launch Modern, a quarterly print magazine about design.
“Modern covers all of the facets of collecting modern design, from aesthetics to market conditions, emphasizing information important for any serious collector, as well as material appealing to any fan of design,” the company said.
With an $8.00 cover price and an initial 50,000 circulation, Modern will be mailed to subscribers of Brant’s two art magazines—the Magazine Antiques and Art in America—in select regions and will be available on newsstands polybagged with the June issue of Art in America.
The debut issue will be 118 pages (60 edit pages, 58 ad pages). Initial advertisers include domestic and international design dealers and auction houses, including Christie’s and Vienna’s Dorotheum. “Clients were quick to realize that Brant Publications has the unique ability to deliver a large distribution to targeted high-income collectors in this area of interest,” Modern publisher Jennifer Roberts said in a statement.
Modern will publish three times in 2009: May, October and December.
