Event: Colophon 2007
The much awaited Colophon 2007, an international magazine symposium curated by Creative Director Jeremy Leslie (London), Writer Andrew Losowsky (Madrid) and Publisher Mike Koedinger (Luxembourg) starts in Luxemburg today.
Five exhibitions on magazine culture will be on view including a visual representation of 10 groundbreaking magazines by the people who make them.
PORTFOLIO SHOWS is a series of live presentations of artwork in the fields of photography, illustration and editorial graphic design. Each one-hour session allows 10 talents to show samples of their work on a projected screen for a period of 5 minutes.

Launch of the book WE LOVE MAGAZINES which includes in-depth features on all aspects of magazine creation, a worldwide magazine directory (+ 1,200 titles) and an international guide to distribution.
COLOPHON 2007 is also the world's leading online directory of pop culture magazines. Over 1,300 magazines are listed with factsheets, covers and exclusive interviews, sorted by countries and language. Yes, you can find some Indian Magazines here, in fact 2 have been added by me :)
