I’m John Moser, Editor of Stereo Analogue England – takes on the 1970s – a semi-annual paper publication addressing cultural and political issues from a distant turbulent time, which went some way, along with the 1960s and 1980s, to shape the world we inhabit today.
The theme of the magazine can be summarized as follows: a musical Granta with heart and soul, containing a series of essays on various subjects from the period 1970-1979. Also included will be photography, illustration and graphic design.
There are two further and final parallel titles in development: Mono Analogue England – takes on the 1960s (Publisher – tbc), and Stereo Digital England – takes on the 1980s (Publisher – tbc), each with full international publishing rights available (respective English edition publisher to own & direct same). Websites www.monoanalogue.com and www.stereodigital.net have already been secured.
INTERNATIONAL PAPER PUBLISHING RIGHTS (IPPR)
The total IPPR charge, per overseas territory, will be a token consideration of 100 GBP. Rights will be sold outright i.e. without a recurring licence. Expressions of interest should be sent to the John Moser-Publisher email address stated below.
14/01/23: rights to all territories worldwide remain available.
The entire international operation will be run on a devolved, independent basis, with investments, corporate structures or major shareholdings unwilling to be entertained.
