Titled “#aday200 The Magazine Exhibition”, it’s now showing at Bangkok City Library, Rajdamnoen Road and features copies of every issue. Readers are invited to scan the QR codes to read it in e-magazine format.
The exhibition also features rare collectibles while guests can enjoy fun activities such as handmade book workshops.
Siwapark Jianwanalee, the newly appointed editor in chief, says: “I believe ‘a day’ still has a lot of potential as an inspiring magazine that passes on positive energy to its readers and grooms a new generation of creative minds. I want ‘a day’ to be a great magazine and build on its 17 years of experience. Most of our team has been with us for a long time, but we also have young people joining us. We are confident in the power of print in this day and age. We believe that printed matter can still reach out to people, but perhaps not in an informative manner. Rather, they are a source of great content from around the world. It’s not about speed anymore – it’s about credibility and storytelling style, coupled with how the contents are presented to the modern readers.”
The editor also talked about a day’s 200th issue that breaks the norms by changing from paper-based contents into a small-scale exhibition held at various places. “The contents are about what happened behind the scene at a day throughout the past 200 issues. The venues are all related to the contents presented. We’ve also printed the 200th issue as a souvenir exclusively for our annual subscribers and exhibition visitors. It won’t be available on news stands.”
‘a day’s’ 200th issue is available in limited number only. Visitors can take pictures with the cover of the magazine at the exhibition and use the hashtag # aday200 to talk about their impression of the magazine. The editorial team will select lucky winners who will receive this special issue.
