Inside the Popshot Magazine

The term  Print is Dead is (in my opinion) becoming a term from the past. Of course, we lost many great publications. I feel many became more adaptive to the new age and providing many options for the readers, including the newcomers. We are featuring today: Popshot Magazine. A beautiful magazine that shares stories and poetry mixed with stunning illustration. Tremendous work of print that shouldn't go disregarded.

In June 2008, the idea for a poetry & illustration magazine materialised as a result of picking through the literary shelves of the now deceased Borders. There was a feeling that the world of poetry was driving itself into an elitest and fusty no-through road, and we wanted to do something about it. Combining illustration with poetry in a neat and beautifully designed format, in April 2009 the first issue of Popshot launched, thumping its chest and quoting Adrian Mitchell’s ‘Most people ignore most poetry because most poetry ignores most people’. With black pages, a sans serif typeface, and filled with vibrant illustration work, the magazine didn’t look like a poetry magazine and we were thrilled with it.
