aerodrome/JOURNAL is a limited edition magazine about words and people, accompanied by a fine art print.

The Magazine

The first issue showcases the editors’ favourite pieces published on AERODROME during its first year, as well as exciting new content that is still to be featured on the website:

  • Interviews with writers, poets and others involved in the world of words
  • Original short stories and poetry
  • Book reviews

Only 300 copies of the first issue have been produced.

The Print

The magazine’s dust jacket is a limited edition fine art print created by Morné Visagie, ranked one of the leading Young African Artists by Business Day WANTED in 2013. Visagie graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2011 and is a printer at Cape Town’s only fine art printmaking studio, Warren Editions. Last year, his debut collaborative exhibition with Mbongeni Dlamini,Far From The Sea, Perhaps… was shown at Whatiftheworld / Gallery.
