Magazine Club: It’s Freezing in LA!
Climate crisis magazine It’s Freezing in LA! is a relatively small title, but it packs a heavy punch. Its 60 pages weigh in at less than 150g, but they’re densely packed with radical ideas that push well beyond conventional environmental issues to argue for an altogether fairer society.
Editor Martha Dillon spoke to us for this month’s Stack Magazine Club, and she explained that the magazine’s size and format are an essential part of achieving their aims: By keeping it small and light they consume fewer materials, and it’s as sustainable as possible, printed on recycled paper using soy-based inks, with no glue to hold the spine together. It was lovely hearing her speak about the things that she and the team have learned along the way, and I was intrigued by her hints at the changes they are currently working on.
