Quarterly is a subscription service for wonderful things. Quarterly provides a new way to connect with the people you follow and find interesting. We spend so much of our lives connecting with people online that we forget the value of tangible interactions that happen in the real world. Quarterly wants to bridge that gap by allowing anyone to subscribe to influential contributors and receive physical items in the mail from them. It’s like a magazine, but instead of receiving words on a page, our subscribers receive actual items that tell a compelling story crafted by the contributor. Here's how it works: Subscribe to your favorite cultural icon on our website. Then, once a quarter, you will receive a curated package of goods from that person.. Each of these shipments tells a story; expect something new and different every 3 months. You will be billed for your subscription every 3 months until you unsubscribe. When you first sign up, your account will be in “trial” mode until your contributor’s next shipping cycle.
