We have decided to officially unlock Issue #1 of Bright Wall/Dark Room magazine, and make the entire issue available to everyone, for free, online. No downloads or subscriptions or iOS devices required - simply click here to be taken directly to the table of contents for the issue (via the magazine website) and dive in wherever you want from there.
Featuring essays on The Place Beyond the Pines, Mad Men, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Wes Anderson, Dead Poets Society, Home Alone 2 and more—as well as several hand-drawn illustations by Brianna Ashby—it’s an issue we’re extremely proud of, spent months on creating, and really want you to read.
Many of you have contacted us to ask if BW/DR magazine will ever be available to those without access to an iPhone or iPad, and the answer is YES. Plans are moving forward to make the magazine available for Androids as well, but more importantly, we are also working to get a fully online version developed and available (to subscribers, still at only $1.99 per month) within the next couple of months.
So, consider this a taste of what that will be like, as well as a thank you to all the BW/DR supporters who haven’t yet been able to read the magazine due to device or other restrictions. We won’t be able to do this with any additional issues - but we can certainly give you Issue #1 for free.
Go! Read! Enjoy!
