Why Arthur magazine rules

all_the_arthurs

Arthur #1–25.

What is the vision behind Arthur?

“The biggest underlying idea is that the culture drives everything else. Culture creates the metaphors and the landscape on which politics and economics and so forth take place. And so then you ask: What kind of culture are you making, or taking part in, or helping to exist? Our idea is to do what all the other underground magazines or publications in America have done over the last 200 years or whatever, which was to attempt to infuse into the culture at large all of the liberatory, progressive and expansive ideas of freedom and values from the traditional underground, and to celebrate them, propagandize for them and push them.”

Jay Babcock in an interview with The Nation.

Arthur returns to the world in August 2007. Be there.
