Our long-awaited grey album (finally) comes out on Friday. Since it also includes our yearly photography special, we’ve partnered up with the Summer of Photography in hosting the launch party at Brussels’ BOZAR Shop. It all kicks off at 19h00, and we have two special treats in store for you. Read on…

Treat No1

Happy hour on the Absolut Vodka bar from 19h00 to 20h00. We’ll be serving up their infamous Basilic cocktail, so hurry up and get to the front of the queue before stocks dry up.

Treat No2

150 limited-edition tote bags for the 150 first guests to arrive. The goodie bags, with an exclusive illustration by Virassamy,  include The Word’s grey album and a photography book from Brussels publisher Le Caillou Bleu.

And an extra special treat…

For the real loyalists out there, we’ve put together 10 VVIP goodie bags for you to go home with. They include an Absolut Vodka mini bottle, an Absolut Vodka book rounding up some of their most iconic ad works, a photography book courtesy of Le Caillou Bleu as well as a Summer of Photography catalogue. What you need to do: share the party’s event page and email a screenshot to wewrite@thewordmagazine.be. The first 10 readers to do so will each with one of these extra special totes to be picked up on the night of the party.
