As we edge closer to Christmas and NYE, we’re taking a look back on 2016 with the magazines we delivered through the year. Each month, we ask Stack subscribers to send in photos of their monthly magazines and we collect them all in our Pinterest boards, but if you want the highlights, we’ve selected our favourites from the year below…

January — The Lifted Brow | The Lifted ‘Bowie’
As the sad news of David Bowie passing greeted us at the start of the year, Ant got creative with his magazine to pay tribute to the musical legend.

The countdown done The brow lifted The strange faced The earth shifted 11/#366 @stackmagazines @theliftedbrow

February — People of Print | Excited subscriber
It’s the best feeling when we hear that subscribers are excited about their monthly delivery. It’s a bit like talking about your favourite TV show with a friend, where every other sentence is ‘I KNOW’.

I was super confused as to why it was so sunny out……..then I heard my @stackmagazines subscription CRASH through the letterbox!!! ☄❤️

March — The Gourmand | Brilliant Impersonator
This subscriber reimagined her favourite spread from the magazine — we totally salute you for your genius!

A last minute entry but my favourite spread from this month! @stackmagazines #RoleReversal #competition #stackmagazines @thegourmandbites

April — Pylot | Playful friends from Hong Kong
We have seen many great posts in from Hong Kong-based creative studio Pop&Zebra this year. Their innovative magazine cover photo ideas never cease to delight us — thank you for being a part of the Stack subscribers’ community!

New studio member alert!! An influential @pylotmagazine rcvd from @stackmagazines.

May — New Philosopher | Full circle(s)
Very into this circular theme by the POSTr magazine publisher, who is also drinking coffee in style…

Great new #Stackmagazines delivery. Really looking forward to reading this! #newphilosopher

June — Amuseum | Crack addict
This was probably the month we had the greatest number of peachy shots sliding into our DMs (in the most welcome, non-offensive way). A mesmerising loop created by this subscriber tops them all…

Mornin' with #amuseum mag via @stackmagazines 🍑

July — Peeps | Happy customer
A sincere message from a true fan of the magazine — thank you Terri for sharing your Stack experience with us.

I think this is my favourite @stackmagazines delivery so far! @peepsmagazine is about – unsurprisingly – people, and visits sex workers in Paris, Maori on the Whanganui River, and women queuing for the restroom, among others. It's beautiful. I'm loving it so far, and am trying to just read little bits at a time so it lasts longer. 💕💕💕 #peepsmagazine #peepsforum #stackmagazines #peeps

August — Drift | Long live print!
Really nice feedback from Peter, who took this beautiful shot of the coffee culture magazine.

Big hitter from this months @stackmagazines in the form of @driftmag volume 4. Probably one of the finest examples of print around at the moment. #vsconi #printisnotdead #stackmagazines #coffeeni

September — Ladybeard | Shhh, it’s reading time
Chariza cosies up in bed with her issue of the fresh, feminist magazine, this time themed on mental health and the mind.

Really enjoying @ladybeardmag's Mind issue. @stackmagazine #stackmagazines 👌🏽

October — Dirty Furniture | Pretty loos
We have received lots of great feedback on Dirty Furniture, the magazine that looks at design items after they leave the showroom. This issue was themed around the toilet, and Harriet’s right, we didn’t know they could look this pretty either!

November — Berlin Quarterly | The sun will rise in the morning
This month was dominated by a traumatising US election, and we felt especially comforted by this subscriber’s response, as accessibility and inclusivity seems ever-important right now.

I'm not usually one for arts review journals, but this one from @berlin_quarterly is a beauty and really accessible for newbies like me. #berlinquarterly #magazine #journal #printsnotdead #stackmagazines #artsandculture #european #literature #photography

December — American Chordata | The great burden
This could very well be one of our favourites of the year. Fantastically symbolic, it seems to epitomise the importance of print journalism in a fake news-saturated online media. Commended for Best Orignal Non-Fiction at this year’s Stack Awards, we hope subscribers are enjoying American Chordata’s quality literary offering.

Sorry lil guy,didn't mean to do that.. very symbolic though! #printisntdead 📕>💻
