interview with Nicholas Lewis from THE WORD



THE WORD documents neighbourhood living, photography, fashion, music and art and comes from Belgium. We had some questions for editor Nicholas Lewis.


-          Why did you start a magazine?



I   I grew up surrounded by magazines. My mother used to edit a local paper for Belgium's Indian community and i have vivid memories of her behind her typewriter drafting last minute editorials. Later on, when I moved to London to study in the early 2000's, a lot of new magazines were being launched and I really started getting into them on another level, analysing their structures, content mix, editorial choices, design grids, tones, etc…All of a sudden, I found myself to be a magazine nut and the only thing I really wanted to do was start one. Got a few friends together, outlined a first issue and, next thing you know, we're outlining our second one. 

-            What keeps you going while editing a new issue? 



   The prospect of putting together an even stronger issue than the previous one. 




-     What’s your favourite magazine? And what is your favourite extinct magazine?    
 

The New Yorker, hands down.

 But i do also love 'SUP - everything from its design to its photography, subjects and tone just hits the spot for me. 

And I also recently discovered Garageland, Garagisme and Tissue Magazine which all offer immensely re-invigorating editorial experiences each in their own way. 

Favourite extinct magazine? Probably Carl's Cars (not sure they're extinct, but haven't seen a new issue in ages). Oh, and Beople (belgium magazine published by Base Design in the early 2000's). 



-          Is there a movement or group of magazines you feel connected with at the moment?


 Not really no. I'd say I/we feel more connected to our immediate and loosely-connected tribe of collaborators than anything else. 



-    Why did you chose to make a printed magazine and not publish your content online?

Because screens make me squint.
