Let’s put it out there. I’m addicted to magazines. You can call it a Magazine Crush. Especially the ones on fashion, art and design, craft and interior. Leave me in a bookstore for hours and hours and I’m happy. Are you familiar having a brand new, untouched copy in your hand, a cup of tea in the other one and turn the first page? Yeah! Never have this with the online versions even though they are perfect to catch up and all. I stick to my analog versions and use them as a archive as well.
This crush started when I was in my teens. I now limit myself (a bit) because I used to buy almost every glossy and ended up with piles of magazines in my house because I didn’t want to throw them away (hence my post about Minimalism). I love to share my favourites with you and also introduce new titles.
A magazine I recently fell in love with is the Australian based magazine ‘Frankie’. It’s quite comparable to the Dutch magazine ‘Flow’. Packed with cool photography, crafts, interviews, fashion, travel, design & art. For the paper fanatics: it’s all printed on beautiful paper. This keeper is published 6 times a year and you can get your copy also online. I found mine, surprisingly, at the local bookstore.
Some cool stuff I found in Frankie magazine issue 68:
