Great design transcends its medium. When we stumbled onto Alpine Modern Quarterly, we were reminded of this fact. Design can change our relationship with a certain object or place. It has the power to evoke nostalgia, cheer, or wistfulness. The folks at Alpine Modern have curated a quarterly publication that focuses on just that...Well-designed places, spaces, and products with a relation to, or point of origin in the mountains.
After our first chat with Founder Lon McGowan and Editor Sandra Henderson, we felt as though we were reconnecting with old friends. The pair seemed to have an understanding of exactly what it is we're trying to create with Alps & Meters. They appreciate goods crafted with integrity, and designed with both function and beauty in mind.
We quickly asked permission to distribute Alpine Modern, and were thrilled when their team agreed. We are excited to join a great list of Stockists, and to present Alpine Modern's Issue 04 to you on Alps & Meters.com.
Alpine Modern is more than just a publication...Check out their stunning new coffee shop in Boulder, their line of waxed canvas weekender and day pack bags, and their tastefully curated shop. Issue 04 is free of advertisements and features 132 pages of beautifully rich content.
