Here’s some some what surprising news… The Albion have decided to go from six issues a year down the three. I’m sure there are a lot of reasons behind this between time, money and everything else going on, but it sounds like they still plan on producing a hell of a magazine! Take a peek at the official word below…
“The Albion is approaching its third birthday. From George’s flat in South London we’ve created a respected magazine with a global audience. We’ve provided content that has been insightful, inspiring and at times controversial.
Producing six high quality magazines in a year can be one hell of a headache, so we’re going to distill our efforts into three magazines a year, starting with issue 18 which will be available on April 1st. You’ll have even better content and longer to read it. We’ll have more time to ride and do other stuff we love too, which will benefit both the mag and ourselves.
This isn’t the only change. To build upon the success of our free digital editions – available to a worldwide audience – we’ll be making it even easier to view or download with a new App. As of issue 18, the magazine will appear online one month after the release of our print edition. We’ll also be taking on US based contributor Scott Marceau as a staff photographer and writer after his consistent and quality work throughout our past issues.
Subscribers, you will all be contacted regarding your subscriptions, and we’d like to thank you all for your continued support.
To everybody who has offered us content, a floor to sleep on, a lift home, or simply enjoyed some of the work we’ve put out, thank you.” – The Albion
The third Make It Happen trip took Greg Illingworth, Tammy Mccarley and Gary Young to Argentina to see what they could find for spots and experience! Take a peek at the teaser for a look into what went down and expect the full-length video to be even better! After you watch this, hit up The Albion to take a look at a bunch of photos from the trip that George Marshall shot!
“For the third instalment of The Make It Happen series of trips, we travelled to across Argentina, South America. We drove from the capital Buenos Aires on the east coast and headed west across the entire country to edge of Andes mountains on the border with Chile. At every city we visited we were overwhelmed by the hospitality of the locals who took us in, gave us a roof to sleep under and cooked us great food. Our good luck ran out in the city Mendoza where Gary Young and photographer George Marshall were robbed at gun point by three kids on a motorbike. Check out The Albion Issue 17 for the full story.
