Magazines are not dead
I love the feeling of paper in my hands. I always have and I always will. My wife has begged me to rid our bookshelves of my favorite paper swatch books that I’ve I acquired over the 10+ years I’ve been doing this…but I just can’t do it. Magazines will always have a special place in my heart…
Which is why I’ve really enjoyed a bit of a reincarnation of boutique magazines over the past couple of years. Two of those such periodicals come to mind: Uppercase and Kinfolk. I remember when Uppercase began and I snatched up the first few issues as soon as they came out. Every issue of Kinfolk I’ve seen has blessed me with their incredibly well done photography and showcases of fascinating people. If you haven’t seen or read either of these publications, do yourself a favor and check them out.
I was on the Uppercase blog earlier today and they had a post about Anthropologie and how Anthro featured their magazine in one of their blog posts. I was pleasantly surprised to see that both Uppercase and Kinfolk made the list! Check out the blog post here.
