Delayed Gratification: Issue 29, covering Oct/Nov/Dec 2017

The Slow Journalism Magazine

DG is a quarterly news journal for folks seeking an alternative to the fake news/social media/24 hour news cycle we seem to be trapped in. The folks at DG use hindsight and reportage to track down a bunch of stories that mattered, and compile them into an awesome publication every three months. For each quarterly issue, they look at a few important stories from across our world, giving them some depth and perspective. With interviews, timelines, photography and amazingly colorful, entertaining and readable infographics, they show us our world with insight. One of my favorite publications, I consider it the best in modern independent publishing. Get hooked. Quarterly, Britain, $20.00

Offscreen: Issue 19, April 2018

The Human Side of Technology

What is Offscreen? This compact publication is the stories, inspirations and passions of people who create in the world of technology. Containing a nice blend of pieces, there are four long, in depth interviews that explore the thoughts and drives of the interviewee, short essays and quick interviews about some insight found in a techie’s life, a handful of projects to improve the lives of humans, a photo section showing tech workspaces across the world, and a smattering of gear. Short of tech-speak and long on inspiration and humanity, this tri-quarterly published out of Australia and Germany is international, engrossing, inspiring. One of the many small, self-distributed gems I carry, it is hard to find outside of a few tech hubs, so grab it while you can! 3x Annually, Australia, $20.00


peddler

  Peddler: Issue 2

Peddler: Issue 2

Peddler is a new bi-annual food journal by author Hetty McKinnon, who has published two ‘multicultural, vegetarian salad’ cookbooks.  Each contributor within the pages of this journal tells their story of a favorite recipe, and the relative it comes from, with warmth and love, and then offers a modern, vegetarian version of that recipe. Hetty (who lives in Brooklyn but is Asian/Australian), her contributors, and their meals, are from many different cultures, and the recipes reflect that wonderful mixture of flavors and experiences. Small and delicate, this journal takes us to that place we all have in our memory of family meals, smells and tastes, that can be so powerful. For those who remember Remedy Quarterly fondly, and those who love a good story. This is Issue 2 - Childhood. Bi-Annual, US, $20.00


nautilus

  Nautilus: Nov/Dec 2017

Nautilus: Nov/Dec 2017

Science Connected

Nautilus is longform science writing that is vibrant and current. Science is a broad theme, and they do a great job of covering the gamut, from linguistics to physics, math to oceanography: if people think about it, they’ve probably written about it. Each bi-monthly issue is divided into two sections, each with a topic, say, trust or the self.  Within this framework, they delve into the science of life - our speech, relationships, illnesses, thoughts and art. It is a compact, readable journal, packed with imagery to help illustrate the ideas contained within. Nautilus is an independent publication, published through MIT Press, and is some of the most accessible science writing happening today. It is well worth diving into. Bi-Monthly, $12.00


milk street

  Milk Street: May/June 2018

Milk Street: May/June 2018

The New Home Cooking

Milk Street is the new publication by the bow-tied former Cook’s Illustrated chef and TV personality. Christopher Kimball. Upon first glimpse it may look and feel familiar, but take a closer look. Definitely not his previous gig, Milk Street is international cooking, tailored for an American’s kitchen and market. My favorite part is the stories behind the dishes. From Morocco to Singapore, Taipei to Rome, they travel around the world to track down a region’s iconic dish, meeting the chefs who cook it and learning how it’s done. Then they break it down for an audience that might not be familiar with it. You’ll also find sections filled with a week’s worth of simple to cook but internationally flavored meals, the stories behind foods you might know, plenty of cooking tips, recipes, and Color Photographs! Published bi-monthly, each issue will be devoured! Bi-Monthly, US, $6.95


far ride

  Far Ride: issue 8, Spring 2018

Far Ride: issue 8, Spring 2018

Documenting Cycling Journeys Around the World

Far Ride is a gorgeous, photo-heavy publication that takes us on cycling trips far and wide. Published from Seoul, Korea, with hefty, art-quality paper and an elegant layout, this one simply feels different. Trips could be on the back roads of Korea, across the open plains of East Asia, or into the unknown lands of Africa. Photo essays, long personal stories, and interviews with riders and dreamers keep us absorbed and intrigued from front cover to the final page. Small print runs and self-distribution make this one rare, so grab it while you can. Tri-Annual, South Korea, $18.00

  Uppercase: Issue 37, CMYK, Spring 2018

Uppercase: Issue 37, CMYK, Spring 2018

For The Creative and Curious

Uppercase is for those who like a bit of creativity in their lives.  Each quarterly issue - which has a theme ranging from various fabric arts, to papercrafts, to color and patterns - is a compendium of creative artists and their wares. A riot of color and inspiration, these makers range from professional artists to hobbyists, collectors, curators and creators.  There are interviews, collections of artists and their art, design guides, tours of studios, and designers at work. Each issue is eagerly awaited. Whether you are seeking inspiration, aspiration, or beauty in craft, this is what you are looking for. Quarterly, Canada, $18.00


tapas

Tapas: issue 13, Spring 2018

Yummy, Yummy Magazine...

Tapas is fun! Based out of Madrid Spain, this retro-styled quarterly puts the focus squarely on food, drink, and nightlife, with a decidedly Spanish flair. Features range from pieces highlighting how food has played a role in famous people’s lives - chefs and restaurateurs, but also actors, politicians, designers, whoever - to short bits on an array of foodie enterprises, from wineries or coffee roasters to pop up restaurants, or a riff on a legendary dish, or chef or nightclub. From food art to food travel, from fashion to the latest international hot thing to eat or drink, with lovely paper, in a nice size and muted color palette, Tapas is hip and international. Give it a taste! Quarterly, Spain, $15.99


flow

  Flow: issue 23, April/May 2018

Flow: issue 23, April/May 2018

A Magazine That Takes its Time

Celebrating Creativity, Imperfection and Life’s Little Pleasures

Each issue of Flow is a happy, colorful, creative, wonderful package of fun. Full of things to do and to ponder, it has interviews with makers and artists, ideas for creativity and simplifying your life, and always contains a little booklet or two within its pages, filled with projects to keep you creative and thoughtful. Published in The Netherlands, and a hefty 130+ pages per issue, this is well worth your investigation. If you are a fan of Uppercase or Taproot, you shouldn’t miss this one. Bi-Monthly, The Netherlands (International edition in English), $24.99


little white lies

  Little White Lies: Issue 74, Mar/Apr 2018

Little White Lies: Issue 74, Mar/Apr 2018

Truth & Movies

LWL is an international film magazine of great films, but it isn't at all what you expect. For one thing, it has no glossy film stills, no actor headshots, and no starred reviews. In fact, while they do have reviews, some of those chosen are decades old.

Instead, each issue features one film, covered with depth and interest, but not too seriously. They have critical essays, interviews, perhaps a history of the director or main actor's works, even a deep dive into the genre of the featured film. Every page is illustrated with hand-drawn art, and the whole thing is well-organized and fun to read. The back half always has reviews, using a number rating instead of stars, and they are a mix of new releases - mostly smaller films - and older but perhaps forgotten gems. Bi-Monthly, UK $12.99


design anthology

  Design Anthology: Issue 16, Spring 2018

Design Anthology: Issue 16, Spring 2018

Interiors / Art / Architecture / Travel

This modern, sophisticated design quarterly covers interiors, architecture, design and art. Published out of Hong Kong, and focusing on the countries of southeast Asia, the aesthetic found in these pages is alternatively classic, ornate colonial buildings, or spare and precise modern buildings in a lush, natural setting. Each issue visits several homes, hotels, cities and cultural destinations, with stunning photography of interiors, gardens and iconic buildings. They have product design spreads, interviews with architects and artists, and book reviews. Beautiful images, a hefty 200+ pages per issue, with nice thick paper and a clean, matte design add up to a gorgeous publication, not to be missed. Hong Kong, Quarterly, $11.99


The common

  The Common: Issue 8, Spring 2018

The Common: Issue 8, Spring 2018

A Modern Sense of Place

This lovely literary journal has stories and essays, a bit of art, and a smattering of poetry. The stories, often in translation, take place in the curious, unusual or interesting places of our world, often in the first person, and they exude that sense of place they are delving into. Published out of Amherst College twice a year, in a tactile and compact package, I await each issue eagerly. Bi-Annual, $14.00
