The Victoria & Albert Museum this month launches a members’ magazine designed by Toronto-based Bruce Mau Design. Part of a new membership package, the magazine will have a new look and format, says editor Charlotte Mullins. It will be ‘slightly shorter and broader than A4 paper’, allowing the editorial team ‘more room to manoeuvre’. The launch issue will have a ‘strong Gothic theme’. The next issue will be ‘much more fashion-driven’ and feature a ‘tartan cover and borders’ to reflect the museum’s Vivienne Westwood exhibition. Published quarterly by Cultureshock Media, the V&A magazine will be available from 31 October.
