In case you’ve been living under a gigantic pile of metamorphic rocks, Penultimate Magazine was released on 1st September 2017.

*gasp* A magazine for lettering and calligraphy?

Yep, you heard right.

Penultimate Magazine is a magazine for lettering artists, produced BY a lettering artist. Penultimate comes out on a bi-monthly basis and has a new theme each edition – from brush pens, to pointed pens, to watercolour and more. The magazine includes interviews with artists, product recommendations, reviews, how-tos, tips and tricks, insider info, community events and workshops and much, much more!

  • A few weeks before the release date, we open pre-sales
  • Pre-sales happen so we can get an estimate on how many to print (because print is expensive and we don’t want 80,000 extras!)
  • To get notified of pre-sale dates, please sign up to our emails using the form on this page
  • During pre-sale, you can choose Digital, Print, or Digital + Print + Lettering Goodie – all at discounted prices
  • The Digital + Print + Lettering Goodie option is ONLY available during pre-sales, so we can order exact numbers of goodies
  • Pre-sale also happens so we have enough lead time to print, pack and send orders by the release date
  • We also have annual subscriptions available during pre-sales, for all 3 options listed above
  • If you miss pre-sales, the edition will become available again as of the 1st of the relevant month, but not at the pre-sale prices
  • Limited amounts of print are available after pre-sale. Digital is available until the end of time!
