~ Magazine madness #1 ~

I love reading. My first love are books (which is why I’m into publishing) but nowadays I also love reading inspiring blogs and beautiful magazines. I think there’s nothing like the perfect combination of image and text, but I also love the feel and smell of paper which is why I don’t think actual books will disappear. I would love to share some of my online and offline magazine inspiration. Unfortunately not every magazine is available in Holland, but if you can get your hands on one abroad please do! You won’t regret it! In “real” magazine heaven I like The Gentlewoman magazine: “a biannual magazine for modern women of style and purpose“. It celebrates women and their accomplishments in beautiful photography, interviews and inspirational articles. Another great read is Australian based Frankie magazine, an eclectic blend of art, fashion, pretty photography, interesting reads and real stories of real people. Like another one of my favorite magazines, they also create spin-off publication which you can buy at their shop. {The Gentlewoman issue 1 cover with Phoebe Philo with spreads from issue 5 Tilda Swinton styled by Jonathan Kaye, photographed by Benjamin Alexander Huseby} {Frankie cover issue 47 – Frankie also offers a digital version}
