Brant Publications Launches MODERN Magazine
MODERN Magazine, a new publication that will examine 20th and 21st century design, has made its debut with its premier issue in June. Published by Brant Publications, publishers of Art in America, Interview and The Magazine Antiques, MODERN will cover all facets of collecting modern design, from aesthetics to market conditions, emphasizing information important for any serious collector, as well as material appealing to the design enthusiast.
Former editor of House & Garden Gregory Cerio will serve as editor in chief. MODERN launches as a quarterly magazine, and will be published three times in 2009 -- in May, September and December. It debuts with 118 pages, including 60 pages of editorial and 58 pages of advertising. Initially a perfect-bound supplement with a distribution of 50,000, it will be mailed to subscribers of The Magazine Antiques and Art in America in select regions, and will be poly-bagged with the June issue of Art in America on newsstands.
"The interest from the international design market has been tremendous with advertisers from six countries represented in this premier issue," said Publisher Jennifer Roberts. "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 Magazine is now available on U.S. newsstands with a cover price of $8.00. Annual subscriptions are $19.99.
