Slate is the home of high-quality, affordable, and inspiring reading material.
Now, the online publication is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a new digital-only publication, Marble Color, available exclusively for Slate.
The book features color-enhanced essays and art by acclaimed writers and artists and is available for free on Slate’s website, or through a limited edition of 20,000 copies available for purchase on Slate.com.
The Marble Color digital edition is available in four different editions: marble color, marble interior, marble accent, and marble texture.
(Marble Color has also launched a digital edition of its classic marble interior and marble accent editions.)
Slate’s Marble Color is available to everyone with an account.
The first 30,000 customers will receive a free copy of the book, while those who purchase at least one additional copy will also receive a marble interior.
Slate has partnered with renowned art and design studios to produce marble color and marble interior editions.
Slate’s marble interior book is also available in the color version, which is available on Slate with a $39.99 price tag and $59.99 in paperback and paperback plus Kindle editions.
“I’ve been using this book for a couple years now,” Slate’s art and fashion editor Kate Bower told Newsweek.
“It’s great for anyone who loves art, or loves the beautiful marble that marble is made of, and for anyone looking for a fun way to enjoy a marble book.
It’s a good, inexpensive, fun way for people to learn about the history of marble and how it came to be.”
Bower added, “I love marble.
I love reading about marble.
Marble has always been a passion for me, and it’s something I’m very passionate about.
It reminds me that there’s more to the world than just marble.”
Slate is also celebrating Marble Color’s launch with a special anniversary event on October 31, featuring an all-star line-up of famous marble experts.
The event will feature guests such as art director Richard Segal, author and lecturer, and architect and landscape designer Richard Reitberg.
Slate is bringing Marble Color to the Web on October 21 at 10 a.m.
