1. Howler is a new magazine about soccer. It will be big, glossy, and packed with original writing and “the most striking art and design you’ll find in any publication being made today.” (That’s what they said, but we believe them.) Editors Mark Kirby and George Quraishi  boast a wealth of reputable experience between them  having logged time at GQ, Condé Nast Portfolio, National Geographic Adventure, and HaperCollins (phew!), so we feel pretty safe in saying this is going to be great. And with talented contributors like Jonathan Wilson and Aleksander Hermon already on board… well, we just had to Project of the Day them.
