Are you hunting for high quality, interesting magazines?
Well, look no further. At Magalleria we've stashed away one of the largest collections of fine, independent and specialist titles you'll find anywhere. Since 2015 we've been putting together a unique and exciting blend of new releases and back issues sourced from around the world, with a number of titles exclusive to us. So if you’re looking for escapism, entertainment, news and entertainment in this extraordinary, bewildering 2021 and you’ve found yourself here, in the Magalleria online store, you’ve come to the right place.
Why are indie mags still booming?
The modern indepent magazine is going from strength to strength, yet we’re always being asked how print magazines have managed to survive in this digital age. They've more than survived, they’ve prospered because print and digital go hand in hand. It’s a fantastic partnership. You can’t browse our magazines away from the store without the internet. We couldn’t tempt or bait you to do so without social media. But what successful print magazines understand is that we all crave tactility, or simple touch, and of course smell. Plus, magazines are episodic, agile things that can respond to what’s happening, roll with it and report with verified information. They can put you right at the hub of things. But really, given the production quality of many current titles, you’ll just want to luxuriate in their serene, analog beauty.Browse our bestsellers
When we opened Magalleria in 2015, as strange as it sounds, we didn’t envisage selling magazines online. Back then it was all about having a lovely room full of paper and ink, but within two years we were selling them online. In 2021 we sell half our stock this way and it seems everyone has discovered the convenience of online shopping.
