About

Arts + Culture + Impact 

An award winning editorial brand founded in 1996 by Editorial Director Evanly Schindler. BlackBook first gained recognition as a downtown New York periodical, bringing underground artists, talent, and happenings to the mainstream. With a roster of famous contributors and constant flow of emerging talent, BlackBook is now an influential global arts & culture authority and brand. BlackBook is the producer of an arts & culture digital platform (BlackBookMag.com) a print magazine (BlackBook Magazine—temporarily on hold ), an insider guide, an art gallery (BlackBookPresents.com), a women’s empowerment platform (awomansrighttopleasure.com), book publisher, and a content, design, and marketing services provider / agency (BlackBook-Creative.com)

BlackBook’s namesake is derived from Joseph McCarthy’s BlackBook, and in an antithetical play on words, our BlackBook is an open palette and platform where artists and creatives can express themselves freely, often unedited, without fear or borders.
