From a fashion shoot in the Icelandic tundra to exploring underwater Mexican caves, we’ve covered a lot of ground in this issue, collaborating with some the best writers, photographers and illustrators along the way.
Avaunt will be an inspirational, beautifully produced biannually lifestyle magazine that references early National Geographic and more recent titles such as Wired and The New York Times Magazine. In an era awash with made-for-TV pseudo-adventure and tediously similar magazine titles, Avaunt will offer discerning portrayals of ground breaking contemporary expeditions with incisive and unconventional insights into the lives and narratives of pioneers past, present and future. It will celebrate the literature and art of adventure, the stories of the people that have mapped the boundaries of our physical world, and our knowledge of the collective potential of our species.
It will treat adventure in the widest possible sense, bringing into focus subjects as diverse as building your own tree house, planning your own expedition, experimenting with food, science and thought. Such stories have a unique power to captivate us all. Our planet’s mountain ranges, oceans, deserts, jungles and poles have inspired some of our richest literature and our most breath taking photography. Avaunt will document our desire to explore the unknown and the ways in which travel and adventure have always stirred the human soul. We will also cover traditional aspects of adventure, from outerwear clothing to comprehensive kit, top adventure destinations and a global events and news calendar. Featuring an extremely high calibre of editorial and photographic contributors, Avaunt will be unlike anything on the market right now, appealing to people interested not only in adventure, but the greater world around them.
