On the Journal:
‘The new magazine joins Holiday, Victory and Luncheon in the ‘who’s the hugest’ stakes, its 186 large-format pages making it a weighty beast of a publication. Its name comes from Istanbul’s European phone code, a number which also happens to be the international code for New York. Editor Heval Okcuoglu makes light of this in her opening letter, claiming it as a ‘misdirection we hope is characteristic of the magazine’s ethos…’ as he introduces the magazine as being both about and beyond its home city.’ Read more of Jeremy's Magazine of the week review of the first issue.
