152 pages on gloss and uncoated paper 16 page A5 insert on uncoated paper Riposte was launched in 2013 by Danielle Pender, a curator at KK Outlet, who had grown frustrated with the limited content in women's glossy magazines. “I found I was buying a lot of art/design magazines and more male orientated titles as the breadth of their content was more interesting. I felt like there was a need for a women’s magazine which featured fascinating women and a broader range of topics,” Published twice yearly, the magazine covers visual arts, design, music, film and tech, and each issue presents five ideas, four meetings, three features, two essays and one icon piece.
