In February, Monocle Magazine’s Tyler Brûlé espoused in his Editors letter that print media is here to stay. “As collapsing and disconnected communities are increasingly put into focus, the voice that binds together the neighbourhoods, businesses, policies and opportunities is more necessary than ever… there is room for existing local news players to use proximity and intimacy to own their markets rather than handing them over to those who are disconnected.” Following this resurgence of slow and hyper-local print, comes the Paramount House Zine. Commissioned by Paramount House owner Jin Ping Ng, the vision is to chart the renewal of Paramount House with a publication that “tells our story, not in an obvious way, but will reveal our varied characters in an interesting, entertaining and beautiful way”. Contributed to by the Paramount House businesses, it will feature intriguing, left-of-centre articles by Paramount Coffee Project, The Office Space, Golden Age Bar and Cinema, Right Angle Studio, Heckler, and Paramount Recreation Club. Navigating this eclectic mix is highly experienced editor Jason Crombie, founder of cult New York zine, Wooooo, and former editor-in-chief at Monster Children. With a unique voice and a strong enthusiasm for Paramount House and magazine culture, he has steered this ship to our first print run coming out this month. We are offering a free copy of the Paramount Zine (anticipated hot off-the-press this June).
