Maybe you’ve seen this beauty on a shelf here or there. Maybe you’ve seen it on a friends coffee table, or photos of it floating around Instagram.
Meet Buffalo Black Book, a quarterly print magazine “committed to highlighting and exploring culture, subculture, love and people through candid conversation and busting of social stigma.”

The zine was launched in September out of Buffalo by founder and Editor-in-Chief Elizabeth Siematkowski. It’s now available in a handful of local shops, online, and even in New York City.
In the words of Elizabeth, Issue 1 and those to come after it are meant to be edgy, raw, and pure. They evoke a message of hope, empathy, and courage.


“I feel creating empathy in a culture comes from dialogue no matter how difficult the topic.  And I believe BBB is a beautiful way to invite that dialogue,” she explains on buffaloblackbook.com.
Part magazine, part coffee table book, and part love letter, this is one of Buffalo’s highest quality printed pubs in terms of both material and content. In it you’ll find deep passages, interviews, and articles relating back to to the quarterly theme, Issue 1 being “Bodies”. The material is interesting, thought-provoking, and can be downright surprising. Which is kind of the point.

You won’t find anything like Buffalo Black Book in Western New York.
Buffalo Black Book retails for $25 and can be purchased at buffaloblackbook.com or any of the following local shops. Follow Buffalo Black Book on Instagram for more good stuff and updates.
