Foam Magazine

How often do you open a magazine a literally drool over every page? The wonderful people at Foam sent over their latest issue and it is ridiculous! I gushed like a schoolgirl about their previous issue and this is more of the same. And by “same” I mean: 170+ pages, foldouts, photo inserts, glossy pages, matte pages, gorgeous layouts! The theme of this issue is Wonder and there’s this beautiful bleeding watercolor type treatment throughout. ahhhh.. Just get it, you’ll see what I mean!

Anorak Magazine

I got a nice package from the wonderful people at Anorak Magazine and I am completely blown away. This is my new favourite publication and the craziest part is that it’s a freakin children’s magazine!

My beef with kids programming these days is that it is all soooo dumbed down and Anorak truly is a breath of fresh air. Imaginative illustrations, amazing hand-lettering, and beautiful page layouts. Apparently the Tate Modern and Colette agree with me as they’re included on the list of outlets stocking the mag.

Selector

Who says print is dead? For every mag headed for a tomb, there’s another one poppin’ out of a womb. I have professed my love for over-sized art publications and Selector can be added to the list. Issue #1 features many artists I’ve plugged before: Mario Hugo, Jody Rogac, John Copeland

Annalemma

Annalemma is the latest magazine to magically appear on my doorstep. Actually “magazine” kind of gives you the wrong impression, it’s a literary publication filled with short stories, photographs, and other artwork. In short, it’s fantastic. The photos below may be a little misleading, Annalemma is filled with a lot more writing than what I’ve shown here. What I was thinking was, I’d show you some of the images first and then dedicate another whole post to one of the short stories for you to read! How does that sound?

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!
