At once interactive, personal, and social, a well-made print magazine has an essential role to play in people’s lives. In his keynote address, Andrew Losowsky insists it’s time for print to push back. He’ll showcase his favourite independent and mainstream titles, explore ways to push the boundary of the physical object, and reveal why, in the publishing world, digital is the best thing that ever happened to print.
