Kodak Launches Kodachrome, A New Magazine for Film and Art Lovers

Kodak has just launched Issue #1 of Kodachrome Magazine, a new limited edition journal that’s geared toward people who love “art, film and analog culture.”

“Conceived by Kodak, but about so much more than Kodak – be it writing, sculpture, music, graphics, or all manner of delights in between,” Kodak says. “Each issue, we bring you stories and conversations from around the globe that showcase our shared fascination with creation, craft and inspiration.”

Issue 01 is being published in a “limited edition run” and contains 76 pages of features, illustrations, and photographs. Kodak is serious when it says the magazine goes well beyond the world of analog photography and filmmaking — here’s a list of what stories you’ll find in the first issue:

  • Chloë Sevigny on film, felines, shooting fairytales and taking the director’s chair
  • Isaac Julien on the virtue of film for inspiring, making and preserving art
  • Tad Carpenter on the power of the pencil
  • Max McSimov on the beautiful truth behind folk songs – with the help of his Super 8
  • Print is Dead is Dead: why independent magazine culture is booming
  • The Hepworths: one of Europe’s most iconic art family dynasties laid bare
  • Lost in Color: why the light, bright world of yellow is a lot murkier than it seems
  • Music to Your Eyes: how gig posters bring out a designer’s most creative side

The first issue is available for purchase now in the U.S., but it won’t come cheap: you’ll have to pay $20 for this little piece of photo publication history from the Kodak online store.
