The summer issue of Port leads with a world first cover story featuring some of the greatest living magazine editors, all shot together in New York by Stefan Ruiz, including Graydon Carter (Vanity Fair), Hugo Lindgren (The New York Times Magazine) and Jim Nelson (GQ).
Received opinion says print media is over, and yet it is unquestionably the most respected medium of our time, one that, after a decade spent losing readers to the Internet, is now growing once again.
In a brave and exciting ten-page story, we talk to the leaders of the magazine industry,
the men responsible for re-shaping our print and digital future, and revisit a time when lunch involved three Martinis and company transport was a helicopter.
Also in the issue:
· Joyce Carol Oates writes a fierce Open Letter to the late, great actor Marlon Brando
· In the Commentary section, Carrie Fisher, a.k.a. Princess Leia, writes about her fascination with the heavens; Geoff Dyer talks about difficult books; Ben Anderson uncovers the hypocrisy of the British and American withdrawal from Afghanistan and Nathaniel Rich writes a letter from New Orleans
