Carrier Pigeon Magazine is an uncensored platform which gives artists, graphic designers and writers an opportunity to showcase their work in the most honest light. The Magazine is a volunteer venture and all of the money we raise from sales goes directly back into funding the printing of future issues. We began Carrier Pigeon with the belief that artistic freedom is a right and the only way that we can elevate an artistic vision is by creating something that lives by that belief.

Six years ago, Carrier Pigeon Magazine was born out of a crowdfunding campaign which sparked the necessary funding needed to print the first issues. Since then, we've been able to publish sixteen issues of Carrier Pigeon by selling magazines, shirts, pins, and original artwork hand to hand at exhibitions, markets, conferences and really, any place that will have us. As we kept printing, our books have become thicker in page count, have grown to include internationally known artists from over xxx number of countries, and have always included a handmade piece of artwork with every issue. Artists that participate in our magazine are given freedom to work without any boundaries or censorship, creating a magazine which is a truly creative artwork in itself.  

Through the dedication of our volunteers, Carrier Pigeon has been able to take the original campaign funding we raised six years ago to publish the first issue and continue to print fifteen more issues afterwards. We are thrilled to say that Carrier Pigeon Issue 17 is edited, finished and ready to print. This time around, we are looking to raise $12,000 within the next three weeks to bring issue 17 to life . Join us in the effort to bring our 17th issue to our subscribers, new readers and enthusiasts around the globe—please donate today.

We will print a limited edition of 1,000 of Issue 17, featuring one of ten original, solarplate prints by A.J. Springer, a hand-made flip book by Andre Da Loba, a do-it-yourself paper sculpture called "Dress Your Own Rocket" by contributing artist Michael McKeown. And to top it all off, CP17 will be encased in a gold foil cover by the issue’s graphic designer, Kurt McGhee.
