What is a Trebuchet
A trebuchet is a medieval siege weapon that can be moved to a variety of optimal positions for maximum impact. Similarly, Trebuchet is a bold voice that challenges entrenched views through the excitement of new creative ideas, writing and cutting edge art.

In 2017, we felt that we had something to offer a global readership, a luxury reading experience and a permanent document of the changing art world. As online bios, CVs, artistic statements and reportage quickly get amended to account for trends and popularity the past is quickly erased.
With that in mind we’ve created a luxury coffee table magazine that is meant to be kept and enjoyed over time. Printed as an off-size A5 (195 x 240mm), 144-180pp (350gsm cover, 100gsm uncoated) high-end quarterly each issue is a premium design led publication that celebrates quality from cover to cover. Priced at £11 we aim to entice readers of Aesthetica, Art Monthly, Monopol, Wallpaper, Paris Review, Atlantic, Nexus, LRB, Wired, McSweeneys, Creative Review, Monocle, Vogue, and Vanity Fair.
