We may be a digital media company, but all of us at Fathom love a well-made magazine. There's no mistaking the tactile quality of heavy paper, the lusciousness of a full-bleed photo spread, the neat-and-tidy packaging of an otherwise impalpable theme.
We have our reading rituals (back page first!) and our storing rituals (stacked in a tower on the bedside table). And, for the first time, we're announcing our heavily researched list of the 24 Best Indie Mags for Travelers.
As in the other lists in our 24 Best series, we spent hours researching, reading, arguing, and judging the best in show. We hope you like what you see (and read).
WIN! A Stack of Our Favorite Indie Magazines
To celebrate our shared love of periodicals, we are giving away a bundle of our favorite indie mags ($175 worth!) to one lucky winner. Titles include Kinfolk, Cereal, Boat, [wherever], and a lot more. We can't think of anything better than lying by the pool with a fresh stack. Here's how you can win:
Follow @FathomWaytoGo on Instagram and post your most magazine-worthy travel photos (an amazing landscape, perfectly packed suitcase, killer sunset) with the hashtag #TravelwithFathom for a chance to win.
Multiple entries are accepted. Contest ends July 31, 2014.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE
And not 10 or 25 or 100? You'll see 24 a lot around Fathom. For a few reasons: We want to deliver a balanced but concise mix of options, and twenty sometimes isn't enough. Also, 24 is our lucky number.
Every contest has fine print. Read it here.
