What’s inside DADA?

How to publish DADA in your country?

Option 1: soft cover magazine

DADA can be launched abroad as a magazine, with a publication rhythm chosen by you. That’s the best way to retain the readership: you sell the magazines both in bookstores and by subscription, as we do in France or in the Netherlands (with Plint).

Option 2: hard-cover book

DADA can also be adapted into books, to be published as single titles or in thematics series, as we did in China (with Citic). For instance:
•Great masters: Da Vinci, Goya, Van Gogh, Picasso, Warhol…
•Modern art: Miro, Mondrian, Keith Haring, Dali, Hopper…
•Thematics: Landscape, Cities, Masterpieces, Portraits…
•Mediums: Photo, Street art, Drawing, Design, Architecture…

In both cases, we have more than 130 issues available to fit your perfect program! Do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your project, and join one of the leading art series in the world.
