Iron & Air is a collectible quarterly print publication for the motorcycle enthusiast. It's 114 archival-grade pages of custom motorcycles, adventure, craft, travel, fuel-culture, and storytelling.
The Hero's Journey: it's the narrative structure at the heart of every adventure story ever told. From the moment when the hero crosses the threshold from the familiar to the unfamiliar, everything changes. At Iron & Air, we've always admired and embraced those who courageously leap into the unknown. Their stories have filled our pages since day one, and Issue 035 is no different.
In this issue, we join James Barkman and his buddies as they face mechanical failures, dangerous weather, and an avalanche along their two-wheeled journey to Patagonia. We meet seemingly deathproof brothers Aaron and Shaun Guardado, who defied their father's wishes when they bought their first motorcycles — only to later make their passion a part of the family business. And Shirley Muldowney shares the triumph and struggle of battling gender norms on the drag strip to become the first woman to earn an NHRA racing license — and championship glory.
We also interview cover artist Amanda Zito, and hip-hop duo Four Fists, and learn why industrial designer Sam Aguiar found his muse in a 1972 Harley-Davidson FLH, while Tim Klostermann chose to pursue a land speed record with something of a much smaller variety.
Adventure is always just across the threshold, there for those who are bold enough to step through that door. It's all ahead in Issue 035.
While the motorcycle is the thread that connects us, it's the places it takes us that often create the greater stories of our lives. We created the publication to collect and tell these stories — a publication that was missing from our own coffee tables.
Subscribing is the only way to get every new issue from us as soon as it launches. As soon as you sign up, we ship you the latest issue (that's issue 033 right now). You will receive all future issues for the recurring quarterly price of $9.95 (we produce 4 issues per year). You will be billed according to our publishing schedule (subscribe today and pay for Issue 033. The next charge date for Issue 034 will be early December). You will never be charged more than four times in a calendar year. Modify or cancel any time. Or never. We'd prefer never.
“Iron & Air goes head-scratchingly above and beyond. I don't know how they manage it, but every issue is a work of art that makes you actually feel something.”
“Iron & Air is rather like the perfect motorcycle – because as a publication, they take me (with dependability and style) everywhere I want to go.”
"A mold-breaking format for a magazine that ditches the decades old factory-demo review and road-trip write-up in favor of the richer themes that can be explored amongst the aficionados and followers of motorcycle culture..."
