Beautiful/Decay re-launch!

The good folks over at Beautiful/Decay are about to relaunch their publication with a bunch of exciting changes! They are doing away with all traditional advertising as well as increasing the size of each issue by 50%, meaning the new B/D will be 164 pages of pure inspiration! I’m not sure how they can afford to do this, it almost sounds too good to be true. However, limited runs released three times per year means you might wanna get a subscription.

Beautiful/Decay has supported Booooooom since day one and I’d like nothing more than to see them make a successful transition. Good luck guys!
