Boat Magazine Issue 8 (the Los Angeles Issue) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. We look the history of Los Angeles through a conversation with Kevin Starr, former State Librarian, and journey through Lynell George’s memories of its streets. We hang out in the here and now with musicians Moses Sumney, Superhumanoids, and White Sea and go on an illustrated journey from skatepark to skatepark. And we talk about what the future might hold during a conversation with Moby who’s famously made LA his new home. If you love LA, hate LA, or can’t make up your mind – this issue is for you.
Boat Magazine is a nomadic biannual and independent travel and culture publication that focuses on a different, inspiring city for each issue. Born out of our love for travel, we’re not a typical travel magazine that tells you where to eat, where to stay, and where to spa. In fact, you probably won’t find any of those things in Boat Magazine. We try to dig a little deeper when we travel – our editorial is raw and honest from both the locals’ point of view and ours as outsiders working there. Our photos are stunning and gritty, each one telling a story of its own. We take a small team of contributors with us to each city and set up camp for a few weeks. Working with locals to create the stories, interviews, photos, and art that go into each issue, we strike a balance between inside/outside coverage keeping the perspectives varied and interesting.
