Russia! magazine is an American 132-page glossy publication. It is published quarterly by Press Release Group. The frequency will go up to six issues per year in 2008. The magazine has the unique roster of contributors. It brought together the best possible team, including designer Artemy Lebedev, writer Boris Akunin, art critic Marat Guelman and others. The magazine is produced in collaboration with Andrew Paulson, the founder of Afisha Publishing House (Moscow, Russia).
Publishers believe that the magazine was the absolute necessity – with so much interest in Russia, there was virtually no resource for the English-speaking public, which wants to know more about this country, but prefers to do it in a smart form of a glossy magazine.
“The magazine is a success no matter what”, - says Andrew Paulson, member of the board of Russia! magazine: “It will make Russians proud and it will make Americans curious.”
The magazine with a circulation of 20,000 copies, will be distributed in the US and around the world. It will be available in most stores, including Barnes and Nobles, in the next two weeks.
A special presentation will be organized for the US and Russian media next week. Details TBA.
