Inside the issue: Olympic gold medal-winning ice skater Evan Lysacek, Ron Burgundy, the war on cancer, a look at the future of retail and a diagrammatic analysis of football corruption.
The third issue of The Gourmand is available on pre-order now, promising cultural explorations of food featuring design hero Milton Glaser, artists John Baldessari and Sissel Tolaas, synaesthesia, Little Chef, the tradition of toasting and plenty more. Love the composite cover image.

The 35th edition of mono.kultur interviews Marina Abramovic, a monochrome special that contrasts well with the hyped colour of the previous Brian Eno issue. This issue is all about the interview, an in-depth piece by David Levine presented in a simple 48-page booklet.
The 35 issues are building into a unique archive of the thinking of contemporary creative leaders, the variation between each individual issue as important as that in the pages of each issue.

Further adventures in the world of drinking! Magazines and alcohol are a heady mix, never more so than with Edinburgh’s Hot Rum Cow. Issue four is out next week, featuring this handwritten typographic cover by Adrian Morris. The red is flourescent – nice! – and the lead drink this issue is a seasonal look at sherry.
Another fine, brave front cover arrives. Taking their belief in black and white a step further – their covers to date have featured B&W portraits – the new edition of The Gentlewoman doesn’t even have a colour border around the image of French actress Léa Seydoux. Pure B&W!
The magazine has also launched an elegant website with plenty of content from earlier issues.
At recent Printout evenings it’s been interesting to note the number of magazines appearing from Bristol recently: Cereal and Offlife are two examples. Another Escape is another, an occasional zine that has just morphed into biannual magazine. The result is a smart, focused new magazine about following your inspiration to do what you want to do. Something we can all relate to.
