An independent magazine full of knowledge, lifestyle, languages, useless facts and an annoying piñata that shows up in every issue for some reason.

Thank you for calling Kanis Majoris. Please choose from one of the following options.

How and when to see meteors, why Mt. Everest isn't the tallest mountain in the world, the type of jellyfish that lives forever, the best albums, some riddles to get you thinking.

Your call is important to us, so please continue to hold and we will be with you very shortly. The current wait time is approximately one hundred and seventy-four minutes.

Kanis Majoris is a digital magazine with knowledge, culture, languages, travel, humour, lifestyle and entertainment. Occasionally there'll be puzzles, riddles, short stories about who-knows-what, and a piñata randomly making an appearance in every issue. Kanis Majoris has all sorts of stuff you may or may not find useful and yes, they are paying me to say all this but I don't see how that's relevant.

By the way: did you know you can click/tap the piñata at the top to jump to the latest issue? Well, now you know.

Place the money in the duffle bag and leave it by that phone booth downtown at 10am sharp. Then take out all the money and leave the bag because, frankly, the bag’s all I really need.

Need food, clothing or medical supplies? Well, sorry. I don't have any of that here. In fact, nothing here is actually essential to human survival, but you don't have to buy it if you don't want to. I understand. If you would, however, like to buy the print version of Kanis Majoris or some other Kanis Majoris merchandise, then this is the place for you. Anything you order will definitely help the magazine grow and I sincerely appreciate it. Now, please excuse me while I make this announcement for a cleanup on aisle 782.

Kanis Majoris No. 1 — Print

Get the print version of the first issue of Kanis Majoris, which has a lot more than the web version. I swear.

If you're in Indonesia, and you'd like to buy one, just hit the button below to get redirected to Tokopedia.

If you're anywhere else in the world, click the other button to go to Pics and Ink, a UK-based site where Kanis Majoris is available to order.

Mugs, towels, wall art and more

Seeing as this online store — if it can even be called as such — doesn't have a checkout facility (yet), Kanis Majoris merchandise is available from Society6. By clicking the button below you agree to be taken to Society6 and you confirm that you will definitely buy something. (Just kidding. The button's only for teleporting you to the art store, nothing else.)

Let's gather around the campfire and discuss our marketing strategy for this fiscal year.

Kanis Majoris is released every six months.
There is an issue every May and another every November.

Every three issues, a combined print edition is made known as Kanis XL. The first of these (Kanis XL #1) will be released in August 2022 and will be a combination of issues 2, 3 & 4.

Here's a schedule to see which issue is coming out when. This schedule is more for myself than it is for you because trust me when I say that all this confuses me more than anyone else.
