Put A Egg On It issue 11
Delivered to Stack subscribers in Oct 2015
What is Put A Egg On It?
Put A Egg On It is an irreverent digest-sized art and literary magazine printed on green paper out of New York City. It’s about food, cooking and the communal joys of eating with friends and family. The magazine is biannual and features personal essays, photo essays of dinner parties, special art projects, illustrations, as well as practical cooking tips and recipes.
What makes it different to the rest?
We’re not an aspirational lifestyle type of magazine. We like messiness and real life. The magazine has led us down many amazing paths and we’ve met people we’d never have met otherwise. We pride ourselves on not just asking our friends for submissions, but finding a variety of people to tell their stories.
Who makes Put A Egg On It?
R&S Art and Publishing in NYC.
Who reads it?
People into cooking and art. People curious about other people. People into printed matters and indie publishing.
Why do you work in magazines?
Magazines blend all my interests together—writing, photography, stories, ink and paper, editing, organizing. Plus, having a series of deadlines is good for me.
Aside from the print magazine, what else are you involved in?
I make photographs and videos. Ralph and I run a small design studio together and make print projects, videos, photo stories, and exhibitions for clients and ourselves.
What would you change about Put A Egg On It if you could?
I’d find a way to more easily manage our mailings and continue to build a strong team so we can do more.
Where do you see Put A Egg On It in five years?
A little bigger, travelling more, collaborating more. The print magazine won’t change too much, but we’ll have a new site, new digital content, and new one-off zine projects to include in mailings.
