In the April issue of Creative Review I look through some recent independent magazines, all of which have recently featured on magCulture. Here are links to the five I mention:
(the image above shows a page from beautiful seventies independent magazine The Compleat Imbiber, as reproduced in The Gourmand).
My latest Creative Review column looks at the new generation of magazine apps coming to the iPhone, apps sharing simple navigation and finite content. The column is only available online to subscribers, but projects mentioned include Marco Arment’s The Magazine and The Awl & V as in Victor (both by 29th Street Publishing). All recommended.
You can read interviews with 29th Street’s creative director Tim Moore (who also makes the Letter to Jane magazine app) on the SPD blog and Verge. Craig Mod’s thoughts on Sub-compact Publishing, referred to in my column, can be read here.
Steve from Stack is part of a panel including editors from independents Crack and The Beat, as well as Dylan Jones from a little mag called GQ. October 25, London.
David Hepworth recalls the pre-email noise of the magazine office.
In the October issue of Creative Review I take a look at the London2012 daily magazines produced by Haymarket.
Typographische Monatsblätter was a Swiss type journal that ran from the sixties through to the eighties. The issues are now online here (thanks Esa).
Correction: the magazine has a history stretching back to 1932; the website relates to a period to be covered by an upcoming book by Louise Paradis (thanks Paul).
Mag Covers 101 is another cover blog, running a seemingly random selection of covers old and new. Quantity rather than quality but worth a flick.
Anorak TV is go, via iTunes.
My latest column for Creative Review is an interview with Kai von Rabenau, the graphic designer-turned-photographer-turned-publisher behind one of my favourite current magazines, mono.kultur. Kai explains how the magazine came into being and reveals his ideal subjects for future editions.
