The Chicagoan #1 $19.95 – This issue marks the public (re)launch of The Chicagoan, a 194-page magazine with articles, artwork and photographs, and no advertising, with arts, culture, innovators and history of Chicago and its surroundings. Originally it was a magazine modeled after the New Yorker, and was published from June 1926 until April 1935. Right now it’s only in a few locations in Chicago. We just got another stack of them after selling double digits in less than a week. Better hustle!
