Today marks roughly three years and two and a half months since the beloved decorating magazine Domino first folded; two and a half months since rumors started swirling about the magazine's rebirth; and two months since Condé Nast officially announced its intention: revive the brand in a newsstand-only iteration that would publish seasonally and sell for $11 a pop. Despite an army of tight-lipped publicists (both at Condé Nast and externally) who have been shrouding the new Domino as if it were the Holy Grail, the loose-lipped @dominomag Twitter handle tipped Curbed off that the issue may be available sooner than its original newsstand date of Tues., April 17. Indeed Domino Quick Fixes, as it's called, has already popped up around Manhattan (76th and Broadway, 36th and 7th), Charlottesville, Va. (Barnes & Noble), and at an H-E-B Buffalo Market in Houston like a hot commodity on the black market. Here now, Domino Day, a thoroughly exhaustive look at the new magazine. Expect a pictorial update to the site—as in, a new photo or two of the debut edition—every hour, on the hour, until 6pm EST. C'mon, this will be fun.
For the past seven hours, the first issue of Domino Quick Fixes has been explored to a mildly obsessive degree. Meanwhile, despite the large proportion of recycled photos from the first Domino, fans near and far have hit the streets in hot pursuit of the new title. Assuming it doesn't sell out within an hour of hitting newsstands, you should be able to snag yours by Tuesday; in the mean time, though, do have a look above at the collected sneak-peek shots from the debut issue.
