Some basic facts about Cabinet

Cabinet is a quarterly, give or take. The fact that the issues are not time-sensitive means that many stores also carry back issues and sell them on a continuing basis.

Cabinet’s circulation: ca. 9,000 per issue

—Estimated readership: ca. 27,000 (based on the industry standard of three people on average reading each copy)

—Readers include a diverse mix of artists, art professionals, cultural critics, designers, academics, students, and scientists. Institutional subscriptions go to museums like MoMA and the Stedelijk, libraries such as Yale University and the New York Public Library, and to some of the most highly regarded figures working in the fields of art and culture.

Cabinet is widely distributed in the US at independent bookstores, museum stores, and newsstands. It is also available in ca. thirty countries abroad, including Canada, the UK, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Turkey, Singapore, New Zealand, and Japan.
