Dumbo Feather is… a ‘mook’ – half mag, half book.
Dumbo Feathers’ motto is… ‘pass it on’,
which my sister did to me a few years ago with a birthday gift of a years DF subscription. I was inspired… so I’m passing it on to you.
In each quarterly issue, 5 remarkable individuals tell you their stories. DF interviews and unites people in their creativity, passion and integrity, and somewhere they’ve found the courage to fly. In their own words they tell you how they discovered their passion, what inspires them, the lows as well as the highs on the journey and ultimately why they do what they do.
Each person’s passion is unique whether it’s baking the best 100% natural sourdough bread in the world, producing fabulous fashion in remote Northern Pakistan, writing poetry, making music, fighting for human rights, finding a cure for malaria, painting, choreographing, exploring, wine making, film making…
Dumbo feather is like a magazine because it’s produced quarterly, sold in newsagents and supported by advertising partners. It’s like a book because it’s a great read (almost like a series of mini-autobiographies), sold in bookstores and design stores and feels like one with it’s beautiful matt paper and weighty cover.
If you like what you see/read – then you can get your paws on the ‘real’ issue in all its 112-page, 100% recycled, matt, delicious glory here.
Dumbo feather respects their readers (they don’t ‘dumb down’ content), the environment (by printing on 100% recycled paper using soy-based inks), and its contributors’ work.
