The pile of magazines in the office waiting for for a mention is teetering so it’s time to share a few recent arrivals. Starting with the fifth Gentlewoman, starring Christy Turlington on the cover (Oh Wow! indeed). Highlights include a shoot of London’s top fashion agents refueling their cars, one of the best and most natural topless shoots I’ve seen (photographer Roger Deckker working at the opposite end of the spectrum from Terry Richardson) and an interview with Martha Lane Fox. There’s tons more in the whopping 278 page issue. The Gentlewoman has proved itself – I’d really miss it if it disappeared.
A beautiful collection of vintage Vogue images.

Magazines have often been linked to or funded by events like exhibitions and conferences. But the last few years has seen a rise in magazines as events. Influenced as much by the universality and portability of production equipment as by the naturally open character of the internet, the potential for crowdsourcing content and creating pages in a public environment has been tested by everyone from Grazia to smaller projects like the growing number of 48-hour magazine projects. And this week, of course, the Church of London have been busy with their Good Times magazine-in-seven-days project. Boat Magazine takes the event idea a stage further, setting up their magazine studio in a different city every issue and seeking to reflect a local vision of that city.

Khoi highlights the differences between print and digital production timelines, notes what every designer knows and publishers tend to overlook: digital takes longer and is less nimble than print.
