Soldes Almanac

Paris / Brussels
Soldes is the revival of Soldes Fins de Série, a Belgian quarterly first published at the beginning of the Eighties. In the words of Andy Warhol “the best magazine in the world” gained international renown few months after its creation, and was sold in nine countries, becoming an underground success on the sidelines of the media industry. In 2010 Soldes was revived as an almanac on Marc Borgers' initiative, with Art Kiosque, Paris, and 5C éditions, Brussels. “Made like a work of art”, Soldes discusses arts, science, and society, exclusively in print format.
