Issues 1 & 2 (Istanbul & Helsinki)


Issue 1:

Istanbul is a stunning metropolis uniquely poised across two continents; an imperial capital to three sprawling empires, the city has been shaped and reshaped by a wholly unique mix of migrant cultures spanning from Eastern Europe into North Africa and the Middle East.

Fare Issue 1: Istanbul is a collection of stories, vignettes, and beautiful imagery, bringing you on a well-rounded, inspiring, and insightful journey into the heart of the city like no other guide or magazine can.

In Fare's Issue 1 you'll be led through the beautiful winding streets of Istanbul by some of the city's finest artists, musicians, chefs, writers, and historians. With them, you'll reach into the city's near and distant pasts, explore rich forgotten desserts, ancient shadow-arts, centuries-old urban gardens, vibrant workmans' eateries, the city's most controversial coffeehouses, and the groove of traditional Turkish melodies. 

Specs: 170mm x 240mm, 196 pages, lithographically printed on Arctic matt and Cyclus Offset stock; perfect bound.


Issue 2: Helsinki (will ship upon release in Q1 2018)

Helsinki is a city at its height, where the past remains unclouded.

It is also something of an anomaly. Culturally, it is a partial amalgamate of its neighbors—and former rulers—in Sweden and Russia, but as the capital of a young and independent Finland, it is full of nascent pride and positivity. It rejoices in an entrepreneurial spirit and a belief that new projects and new legacies can be made here, even as older ones are preserved and celebrated.

While some cities in Scandinavia exude a “Nordic cool,” in Helsinki, there’s a collective nonchalance, and a widespread pragmatism. Helsinki's streets are filled with art nouveau design, with the work of celebrated Finnish modernists also very much on display. Even now designers, artists, makers, chefs, and hip-hop stars embolden the city’s claim to a vibrant lifestyle.

In Issue 2: Helsinki, prepare to explore: 

  • The sweet smells and folkloric past of a Karelian bakery
  • The island of Seurasaari, where deep in the woods you'll find a centuries-old village, restored from along Finland's eastern borders
  • The old-school gems of Helsinki's restaurant scene, institutions with classic Finnish fare and interior, unchanged in nearly a century
  • An enigmatic bar with famous patrons where Soviet-era ideals still live
  • The torikahvilat, the orange tents of Helsinki's market squares, with their famous breakfasts and apple-mash doughnuts
  • The history of the naval fortress of Suomenlinna, one of the largest in Europe, situated across the Wolf Isles
