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!
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?
File Magazine is without question the coolest publication to show up on my doorstep thus far. I love large-format mags and this bi-annual publication outta the UK is roughly 12″ x 15.5″. The cover is a thick card stock and the inside pages are actually newsprint, but don’t come across cheap like you’d think. The page layouts are beautifully minimal – this thing is a real work of art. This first issue comes with a limited print by Geoff McFetridge and a DVD with over two hours of shorts films, music videos and interviews. In short, this magazine is legit!
