The 2022-2023 edition of the Inlander’s glossy magazine, Annual Manual, is hitting stands today, Tuesday, Sept. 13. Local readers can find it free at hundreds of Inlander newsstands across Eastern Washington and North Idaho.

Known as the "Insider’s Guide to the Inland Northwest, " Annual Manual is the Inlander’s one-stop resource for everything from shopping to dining to recreation. And the 2022-23 edition is the result of a special collaborative effort that’s never been done before: The Inlander teamed up with the creative minds at The Great PNW.

Doing a collab with The Great PNW was a natural partnership. As a lifestyle brand that celebrates the beauty and uniqueness of the region with its clothing and accessories, The Great PNW’s streamlined style and laid-back ethos perfectly complements the content of Annual Manual. The 228-page magazine shines a spotlight on the many aspects that make the region such an amazing place to live, work and play — just like The Great PNW’s products.

“For us, the Inlander is a true mover when it comes to what’s cool in Spokane,” says Joel Barbour, The Great PNW’s founder and creative director. “Our values and heart for the region align side by side.”

The Great PNW designed these stickers for the magazine's section navigation.
The magazine showcases The Great PNW’s signature graphics as “stickers,” along with film photography by Spokane photographer Jaymie Belknap. Each chapter, or section, of Annual Manual opens with a stylized collage of Belknap’s photos, taken at recognizable landmarks and businesses across the region.


The creative direction from The Great PNW took those of us at the Inlander a little out of our comfort zone — in a good way.  This year's magazine has a fresh look and feel, encapsulating the strengths of both teams in storytelling and design.

On the content side, the Inlander’s team of writers contributed to each section’s diverse collection of stories, from shopping guides on record stores and vintage shops, to overviews of the Inland Northwest’s vibrant restaurant scene. Readers also meet eight “Inlander Insiders,” local leaders who reflect the magazine’s distinct sections.
