Happy New Year from #zurich #switzerland

I am quietly welcoming 2021 with a hope that it brings the work, the inspiration, the joy and close connections that we’ve been a tad short of this year.

It’s time to turn the page but never forget the path that we’ve travelled thus far. “Just keep going. No feeling is final.”

Happy New Year! 🎊 🍾🎉

It’s been a long road this year, and for everyone I know, a very, very different and difficult year. I miss my family, but I have had to make choices and be places that they are not in order to find work, and find my way through this. I’m still battling against the odds, though I am lucky enough to be able to keep trying.

Been Magazine struggled this year with low sales, and closed retailers, but it remains something I would like to keep going. I started writing for issue #4 in June this year, but have yet to complete it. I can’t tell you what exactly will be in it. But I can tell you that I have committed to creating not just another issue of my magazine, but hopefully something more. I am not entirely sure what I mean by that, but it will include a lot of pictures, some very cool people and amazing places. It’s really the story of this magazine. I am lucky enough to live in an amazing place at the moment, but the sum of my experience is a path, one path winding through a lot of places, and I want to connect them all here. That, really, is how this magazine came about. A moment in one place led to an idea in another place, which turned into Been Magazine. Issue #4 will be that story, wherever it takes me.

I am planning to print and ship it around March 2021. I know it’s early days, but I have to gauge interest to make sure I still have an audience out there! I’m hoping I can interest you in catching up where we left off by pre-ordering issue #4. You can get it ordered at https://www.beenmagazine.com . It’s $16 including shipping (US and International) and orders are being taken now.

I hope you and yours are well as the holiday season closes in. Thanks again for liking Been Magazine. I appreciate every one of you, and hope you’ll share this with others, too.

Warmest wishes for the holidays, for a better year ahead, and sincere thanks,

Andy Davies

"I’m going to pull out all the stops to keep sharing our mutual love of the printed word. But for the first time in The Strand’s 93 year history, we need to mobilize the community to buy from us so we can keep our doors open until there is a vaccine."

In the nineteen-seventies, you would see crime, drugs, and dead bodies on the infamous strip; you might also spot Debbie Harry, Mick Jagger, or the founding members of Talking Heads.

THIS IS BEEN MAGAZINE.

Been Magazine is stories of people doing what they love in the places that they live. Creative people + places. Artists + designers. Architects. Photographers. Makers. Doers. Wanderers. People who dream big dreams and small dreams. People who love where they are, what they are doing or where they are going.

Been Magazine is, in a word, inspiration. It is inspired by and celebrates art, photography, travel, individuality and creativity. If there is a common connection between story subjects it is inspiration. New York, city of endless inspiration, is the heart of the magazine. But all the other places covered (and there are many more planned) are in the magazine for the same reason: they inspire me to want to share their stories. Stories from New York, London, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Paris, Nantes, Prague, Zürich, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and more!

Issue number one, Spring/Summer 2019, is almost sold out, issue two, Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 is out now and issue three, winter/spring 2020 launched in March. Order online! Beenmagazine.com
