Back in December, Quarterly tried a little experiment. We created a limited-edition trio of holiday packages (one each in Food, Art, and Exploration) and did the curating ourselves. We hoped “Best of Quarterly” would be a hit, but no one in the office guessed how popular it would be: We sold out of every single package in 2 hours.
Turned out, the Quarterly team could curate. Who knew? And we loved it so much, we decided to make this thing official. Today we’re excited to announce the first installment of the “Q” mailings: boxes thought up and assembled by the tasteful folks at Quarterly HQ.
The first “Q” mailing features Food and Home items and gets the hashtag #QFH01. It’s the one to subscribe to if you love Food 52 and Veronica Belmont. Over time, we’ll be rolling out mailings in seven categories, with the second one slated to drop in just a few weeks.
Unlike Best of Quarterly, these aren’t “greatest hits” packages. They’ll be stuffed with original items that our contributors haven’t sent before. And they’ll function just like standard contributor mailings: as ongoing subscriptions shipping every quarter.
Be an early “Q” adopter by signing up for #QFH01 today. And stay tuned for more “Q”s to launch. We can’t wait to hear what you think!
