It sounds like a local magazine, but The Berlin Quarterly sets its sights well beyond the confines of Kreuzberg. In this first issue it takes in Belgrade and China, as well as the future of the book and the history of single-cell organisms.

It’s a fantastically ambitious, fiercely intelligent magazine of ideas, broken up into long stories that sit somewhere between magazine articles and book chapters, and it feels genuinely new and exciting. It bills itself as a ‘European review of culture’, and it’s fantastic to see such a cerebral title taking its mission so seriously.

Issue two is due out in the summer, and it’s well worth hunting out this issue while it’s still on shelves.
