24 Magazine: every ish is done in a day, ad-free and kickstartered

Rose Fox sez,

Right this minute, eleven accomplished creative professionals have wedged themselves into a studio in Brooklyn, New York, and are in the process of putting together the first issue of twenty-four magazine. twenty-four is a quarterly publication for which each issue is conceived, written, illustrated, designed, and produced in 24 hours. The creation of the first issue began at 10 a.m. Eastern Time on February 23, 2012 and will finish at 10 a.m. on February 24, at which time PDFs of the planned 64-page magazine will be sent to the 100+ people who backed the project on Kickstarter. Print copies will follow within a week. The first issue is 100% donation-funded and ad-free.

The first issue has the theme of "trust," which will be illustrated and explored in fiction, poetry, articles, interviews, photo essays, and drawings. In addition, the contributors are documenting their creative process and soliciting ideas from the public by posting photos, videos, and text to Twitter (using the hashtag #24mag), Flickr, Storify, YouTube, and Tumblr.

twenty-four magazine


  1. Kinda like working on a “daily” with fingerpaint, except you make 360 fewer issues per year, eh?   Snarkieness aside, it’ll be super cool to see what they come up with.   Definitely a labor of love.

  2. Sounds like fun. Completely ad free though? Could be a great opportunity to showcase some commercial creativity too.

  3. time magazine does that every week.Is it some kind of badge of honor that these guys beg for the money? how do you know they’ll actually put out the mag?
