Stack is the subscription service for independent magazines, delivering a different title to thousands of subscribers around the world every month.

Subscribers never know what they’re going to receive next, but they do know it will be a beautiful, intelligent print surprise that they probably wouldn’t otherwise have come across. Based at Makerversity in Somerset House, Stack is one of the contributors to Print! Tearing it Up, and for this week-long takeover they’re giving visitors the chance to step into their world of independent publishing. Come and browse the magazines they’ve sent out recently, watch reviews of the most exciting titles, and pick up a bargain from their archive.


SAT 28 JUL 2018 | 11.00 - 17.00

We've delved into the Stack archives for this exclusive opportunity to buy some of the best independent magazines at half price. Featuring many rare issues that aren’t available to buy in the shops, this is a one-off opportunity to browse the Stack selection and take your favourites home without breaking the bank.


TUE 31 JUL 2018 | 13.00 - 14.00

Stack founder Steven Watson speaks with Paul Gorman, writer and co-curator of Print! Tearing it Up, to discuss the rise of independent magazines. Spanning more than 100 years of British independent publishing, they’ll discuss the magazines that have defined their times, asking why people are driven to print, how the magazine’s role has changed over the decades, and what the future may hold for independent publishers.
