The magazine, from Evening Post Ventures and Evening Post Publishing Co. -- owner of The Post and Courier, the South's oldest daily newspaper -- speaks to both men and women for whom outdoor activities are more than just hobbies, but the centerpieces of a luxurious lifestyle and subjects worthy of the highest intellectual pursuits. Garden & Gun draws its unusual title from a popular club of the same name, which operated in Charleston from 1978 to 1985, and still remembered fondly by many city residents.
Garden & Gun was created by Publisher Rebecca Darwin, previously publisher of The New Yorker and Mirabella and marketing director of Fortune, and by Editor in Chief John Wilson, a driving force behind the launch of Charleston magazine and Kiawah Island Legends Magazine.
Garden & Gun's premiere issue debuted on newsstands in early April with a $4.95 cover price. Four additional issues follow in 2007 -- Summer, September, October/November and December/January. Frequency will increase to 10 issues per year in 2008.
