The Belfast Pop Up Selling Rare Magazines and Books

Ciarán Howley

Iris Magazine Store is hosting a pop-up at the Sound Advice Belfast on Sunday where print enthusiasts can get their hands on some rare finds in Ireland. 

The fate of print media in the 21st century becomes harder to predict with each year. As social media platforms are mediating both print and digital publications increasingly, finding print magazines in Ireland has gone from a popular, accessible pastime to an esoteric niche. 

For those looking to get their hands on rare, printed magazines look no further than Iris Magazine Store. While initially an only online store based between Dublin and Belfast, the company is now hosting pop-up events at the Sound Advice record store in Belfast from 13.00-17.00.

From rare Japanese menswear magazines like Popeye to interior design coffee table books, these are the kinds of spreads you would struggle to find in Eason’s.

“Iris was born at the tail end of 2021, from a need to source all of the magazines we as customers loved but couldn’t readily find here in Ireland. Iris really is a passion project for us.
Based between Dublin and Belfast, we stock magazines spanning genres from Japanese titles to design to travel guides.”

DJ Daniel Young will be manning the DJ boots from 13.00-17.00.
