A new magazine that has its roots in this quote from Walter Gropius: “the ultimate goal of every creative project is construction […] There is no essential difference between the artist and the craftsman. Let us wish, conceive and create the new constructs of the future, that will embrace all in one single form”. The magazine explores aesthetic and functional research in all its many shapes and forms, from illustration to typography, from designs for everyday objects to street art and the new face of craftsmanship.
Published quarterly and bilingual (English and French), Walter is a homage to Gropius not just in name and basic inspiration, but also as regards the decision to make it a limited issue: 3,852 copies of each edition will be printed, i.e. 1883 + 1969, the birth and death dates of the founder of the Bauhaus movement.
The first two editions of the magazine are on sale from the website www.readwalter.com.
