Bored Ape Yacht Club and Rolling Stone partner for ‘limited edition’ magazine
Popular American monthly Rolling Stone has unveiled a partnership with Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) for a special ‘limited-edition’ magazine.
The publication will feature 20 pages of never-before-seen BAYC artwork and unique designs from an array of collaborators including Claire Salvo and TimpersHD.
It will also include early sketches of the ‘swamp club’, insights into the original apes created by the BAYC collection, and how the creative minds behind BAYC bought their ideas to life in the form of NFTs.

Only 2,500 copies will ever be printed of the magazine – meaning that the 5.7k owners of an ape will have to act quickly to snap up their own piece of BAYC history.
The official BAYC also revealed that the magazine covers will be auctioned as NFTs in the coming weeks.
The launch of the magazine coincides with ‘APE FEST 2021’ – a series of events set in New York for BAYC holders to meet up in real life and strengthen the community.

The event continues today with a ‘merch pop-up’ that’s open for the public and concludes with a 2,000-strong ‘warehouse party’ and an exclusive ‘VIP charity dinner’.
Despite a recent lull in the NFT market, Bored Ape Yacht Club has held up extremely well and continued to dominate volume rankings due to the ever-increasing popularity of the project and the opportunity to join the BAYC community across Twitter and Discord.
Record sales also continue to flood in for rarer apes in the collection, including an array of ‘Trippy Fur‘ apes and an extremely desirable ‘Terminator Ape‘.
Additionally, BAYC also featured prominently at Sotheby’s recent ‘Metaverse’ auction in the form of a ‘Solid Gold’ ape, which sold for an astonishing $3.4m.
