On Wednesday 20th March friends and contributors joined at Odd Culture’s Pleasure Club in Newtown, for the SIDE-NOTE x Belvedere Vodka launch party, to celebrate SIDE-NOTE Volume 1; a 350-page hardcover publication, printed in Australia and covered by Troye Sivan. Guests sipped bespoke Belvedere Vodka cocktails; a Dirty Martini, Pleasure Spritz, and Belvedere Refresher, and were served Gourmet Hotdogs and bar nuts. 

A note from the co-editors: 

Reflecting on Volume 1 and in the spirit of what we have come know a side note to be – a crucial, revealing, and personal element of conversation, we were compelled to launch in the company of an industry that has supported us individually, and as we grow we want to take all of these people –  our friends, collaborators, and brand partners-  with us. SIDE-NOTE is different, intentionally. We believe in the potential of our market, and the collective strength of independent publishing. We hope to be additive, not an alternative to what exists already, a champion for our community.  

The time is now.


SIDE-NOTE acknowledges the Eora people as the traditional custodians of the land on which this project was produced. We pay our respects to Elders past and present. We extend that respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples reading this.
