Inspiration that you can touch, that is what lovely magazines are for me. If you perhaps like me are guilty of spending a little time in Barnes & Noble then you may have stumbled upon some favorite glossies of your own. I am always scouring the shelves to see if there is one hidden which may be a previously unknown well of creativity. Sadly, with the publishing business as it is today I have been smitten with some only to have them snatched away (Blueprint/Paste). Below are a few of my remaining favorites:
Selvedge – The July/August issue has an amazing spread about Nygards Anna (hope to post scans soon)
Lula - I didn’t enjoy the current issue, but the back issues have typically been quite magical
Where Women Create – First issue to have a section on creative men, and it’s my favorite part
Kinfolk Magazine – I have posted quite a bit already about this, the full issue is available to view here.
Vogue – I tend to scan through to see if its an issue I want, but lately Jen has been keeping me well stocked and I am so thankful.
Donna Hay – Has food ever looked so beautiful?
*Some of my favorites are kind of pricey but I’m pretty sure no one will keep you from sitting down with one at B&N to take a peek or check with friends to see whether you can swap copies. —
