Our first biannual edition is out now, featuring Josh Brolin, Withnail and I director Bruce Robinson and a skyscrapers special
The 16th issue of Port is our biggest yet and marks our transformation into a fully fledged biannual magazine. We’ve opted for a larger, weightier format, moved to a thicker and higher quality paper stock and expanded to 242 pages.Our newest cover features Josh Brolin of Inherent Vice and No Country for Old Men, who chats to Los Angeles film writer John Horn about working with the Coen brothers, mountain climbing, and mastering the art of bakery.
An increased number of pages means that we’ve been able to dedicate more coverage to this season’s menswear collections – as selected by Port‘s fashion director David St. John-James – by labels including Cerutti 1881, Margaret Howell, Dunhill and Stone Island.Longtime readers will be happy to see we’ve continued to develop our regular sections, including The Porter, Commentary and Fiction. For the design enthusiasts there is article on Italian furniture by Molteni&C, an interview with David Rockwell and a still life feature shot by Joakim Blockstrom.
Elsewhere in the issue, we travel to New York, Sydney and Washington D.C to chart the latest innovations in skyscraper construction as part of an architecture special, which sees Alyn Griffiths speak to Wired magazine’s editor-in-chief, Scott Dadich, as Condé Nast moves to its new home at One World Trade Center.Port‘s new deputy editor and online editor Ray Murphy meets ‘body architect’ Lucy McRae, who discusses how she blurs the lines between art and science; Cambridge anatomist and writer David Bainbridge considers the biological history of female curves; and the author and director of Withnail and I, Bruce Robinson, tells us what he loves and loathes.
We’ve welcomed a number of new team members, created an all-new website, which will launch later this week, and we’ll be investing more time into making beautiful and original short films for our readers to enjoy.
It’s going to be a great year, thanks for being part of it.
