About John Herschendand

THE THING Quarterly is an object-based publication based in San Francisco. Each quarter, THE THING editors Jonn Herschend and Will Rogan invite a different creative contributor - artist, designer, filmmaker, actor, musician, or writer - to create an object that somehow incorporates text. The objects are then reproduced, wrapped and shipped to every current subscriber. THE THING has collaborated with an inspiring range of contributors from Dave Eggers to James Franco - and published (on) a curious assortment of objects from mugs and mirrors to shower curtains and maple syrup. THE THING has been featured in prestigious publications across the globe, including Artforum, the NY Times, Readymade and Frieze Magazine, among many others.
