Co-publisher’s Note

Join us in celebrating the tenth anniversary of The Walrus magazine

The Walrus 10th Anniversary

It has been ten years since the launch of The Walrus magazine—a print periodical about Canada and its place in the world, made for curious, engaged people like you. In honour of this momentous occasion, we have published a special, collector’s edition of The Walrus magazine that is now available—for $10—at your local newsstand. This stunning issue—124 perfect-bound pages, featuring a cover and a visual essay about water by renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky—includes journalism by Ron Graham, Mellissa Fung, Katrina Onstad, Andrew Coyne, and many others, in addition to fiction by Lisa Moore, illustration by Barry Blitt, and so much more.

We hope you will join us in honouring the ten-year anniversary of what has become Canada’s most-honoured magazine. We hope you will celebrate by supporting our work and the work of our writers and artists. We hope you will commemorate this milestone by purchasing this gorgeous collector’s edition of The Walrus magazine.

In the grand tradition of fine magazines, this issue is a beauty to behold and to hold. It contains much food for thought, and will look great on your coffee table for years to come.

When you purchase the tenth-anniversary issue of The Walrus magazine, you’ll get every story and every image immediately—a luxury that will not be made available here or elsewhere. You’ll also receive a free ebook with purchase—our gift to you for heeding this call—and you’ll have the chance to win a trip of a lifetime, on Adventure Canada’s Greenland and Wild Labrador expedition.

So, please head out to a newsstand and buy the magazine. The time has come, The Walrus said…to celebrate our tenth anniversary!

And thank you, Walrus community, for helping us get here.

The Walrus magazine’s tenth-anniversary issue is now available on newsstands at Chapters/Indigo, Shoppers Drug Mart, independent bookstores, and everywhere fine magazines are sold.

This appeared in the October 2013 issue.
