After I published the release of Ernest Journal recently, Tusk Journal is another british editorial project which started on Kickstarter. Founded by James Falkingham and Alexander Lester, the magazine coming from Manchester documents the creative scene of North West England, covering music, lifestyle and culture. After the launch of volume 0 in 2013, the first issue was presented last month and takes a deep look into the vibrant cultural scene of Manchester and Liverpool. With a cover by illustrator Rob Bailey, volume 1 includes in its 96 pages interviews with Liverpool band Outfit, carpenter Hugh Miller, the artist who illustrated the cover as well as a selection of bars, workshops and studios.
"We aim to deliver a unique publication, shining a spotlight on those who make this creative landscape the wonderful place we live, work and breath today."
