Title of Magazine Issue #1 Released

It exists! The first print issue of Title of Magazine is printed and will be haphazardly distributed in the next two weeks. Expect a redesign of this website as well in the coming weeks, shifting away from our blog origins to more of a support site and distribution hub for the more tangible incarnations of TITLE. WANT A COPY? Email us. TitleofMagazine -a-t- GMail  If you live in the NYC area, we can probably arrange some sort of hand-to-hand or improvised cache delivery method.

FU1K: Crescents, 772 Words

Installment two in our short fiction series, Fiction Under 1000 Words. Printable PDF I find little crescents of her fingernails in the corner of the room. There’s two of them perched on the carpet, leaning against the molding like they were little animals, two legged beasts carved from flimsy ivory. She never painted her nails since we had the kid. I’m not looking for them, on my knees cleaning the edges of the living room, but I find them. She’s still here, in a way. The dust on the edges of the molding and on the rim of the light switch plate is probably 30 percent her skin cells, 30 percent mine. If a neutron bomb got dropped and we were all wiped out and archeological crews from a future civilization came through here studying, reconstituting the dead from what we touched, they’d vacuum up all the cells and grow […]

FU1K: Submarine, 659 words

As promised, we’re diversifying our offerings to give you some short fiction, collected as Fiction Under 1000 words (FU1K).  As that I personally find reading a story off a screen to be lacking, we’ve got a specially formatted print version as a PDF for you to print out.  It’s adapted from the Pocketmod so it should fit nicely into your pocket and be ideal for reading on public transportation, no matter how crowded.  Print and fold ’em, leave ’em in public places, sneak them into friends’ jackets. print version Admission is five hundred yen, which I chop the last two zeroes off of to get dollars. I pay for both our tickets even though we never said this was a date. The attendant closes the door behind us silently and the rivets on our jeans click together as we sit down next to each other. When the ride slows near […]

Title Manifesto 2010

Yeah, like that. Before I get into things, I just want to say that we here at TITLE continue to be awed and flattered that you people are actually reading this, subscribing to it and following us on Twitter. A big thanks to the friends we’ve made along the way, all the folks who dig what we do, and every little thing that makes the little stat bar creep up, thus giving us a handy numerical value for our self-worth. But on to some talk about what’s coming down the pipe… What’s in a name? Yeah, it’s weird that we’re called Title of Magazine and there’s no magazine.  Got it.  The aim always was to find something that managed to not only be a magazine but also not to be a time-sucking, cash destroyer, puking ads and compromises all over the pavement.  A tricky thing, it turns out.  But that’s […]

Raw Materials: Venetian Renaissance Scans

Click here for a gallery of ancient hand-cut fonts, illustrations and borders, all free and clear to alter and reuse. I found this book for a dollar at a garage sale and it looked too good to keep to myself.  Great for design projects that require a medieval touch.  Ten scans up currently, more on the way.  Angels, saints, branches, lions and giant fancy letters. Link to any projects you use these on in the comments.  Someone want to whip up a font?
