V Magazine is publishing a special addition issue “Gigi’s Journal” later this month. The guest Creative Director is model and it-girl Gigi Hadid. The issue features diverse content, from creative writing to miniature sculpture to protest art, that not only encapsulates the current moment, but also helps to initiate change.
The 32 exclusive pieces of art and writing from around the world were handpicked from over 20,000 submissions by Gigi herself. In addition to commissioning the visual and written pieces inside, Gigi painted the Journal’s cover art, which is printed with two special types of ink—solar-activated and glow-in-the-dark.
The 64-page, limited-edition hardbound book channels a multitude of current issues—including but not limited to global public health crises and black Americans’ ongoing struggle for equality.
A percentage of proceeds to be split among four organizations: Black Lives Matter, the NAACP, the ACLU, and Campaign Zero. Gigi has also pledged to match that amount with a personal donation.
Gigi’s Journal hits the stands July 15 and is available to pre-order here.
