The United Stack of America

Well howdy y’all, and it surely is a pleasure to meet all you Euro-limeys.

Ah well, I tried. I’m Andrew Losowsky, and I’m in charge of the newest Stack project: Stack America. As you’ll have gathered from my tortuous intro, I’m actually from the north of England, but the USA is now my home, and it is my pleasure – nay, honor – to bring Stack to these shores under the heading of Stack America.

Stack America is just like the Stack you know and love, but American flavored. Which means more magazines from America (that is, the USA, Canada, Mexico and further afield too, if I can swing it), sent out from an American address, making the whole thing more affordable for those of a west Atlantic geographic persuasion.

Though it’s mainly America-themed, I’ll also throw in occasional European delights that don’t often make it out here, just to keep my lovely subscribers on their toes.

There are a couple of differences between Stack and Stack America, namely:

– While the original Stack is monthly. Stack America is every two months.

– Stack and Stack America will send out different magazines, so a subscription to both means even more variety to your magazine reading. – The first Stack America will be sent out in January. Which makes it the perfect Christmas gift for the designfreak/magazine-lover/doctor’s waiting room in your family.

– Stack America is run by me, not Steve. So if you have a complaint or a problem with it, please don’t leave poo on his doorstep. I’m at (though naturally we are working together to make it a success.)

– Just like Stack, no magazine pays or gives us favors to be included. We only choose magazines that we love, and that we know you will too.

– Members will also receive occasional bonus delights, including exclusive, mag-themed pieces. Sometimes these will only be for Stack America, other times they might appear in both Stacks, if we’re feeling generous (which we usually are).

– Yes, I am accepting submissions and suggestions! Lemme know what your favorite American magazine is, and just maybe, it might end up in an envelope near you.

In general, I plan on only announcing Stack America magazines after the mailout, so that each issue’s contents remain a surprise. I’m going to make an exception for the first one, however, mostly because I’m really delighted about it, and also because it gives you a flavor of what to expect.

(drum roll)

Included in the first Stack America envelope will be a forthcoming issue of Meatpaper, the beautiful and provocative San Francisco-based quarterly journal covering art and ideas about meat, and the latest Megawords, a Philadelphia-based magazine about place and human experience. And more things I just can’t announce quite yet.

Did I mention that Stack America is going to rock your world? Any more questions, drop me a line or leave a comment. And do spread the word, and sign up. Stack America is go!
