I have been reading more magazines than usual lately. Probably the extra plane rides and the downtime when I was sick. So, now I have a pile of magazines stacking up in my living room, and I just don’t know what to do with them. I feel like they would make great packaging material for shipping things out, and I may even want to reference them once or twice in the future, but until then they are just taking up space in my modest home. (If you have any ideas on what to do with these, I am all ears.)
So, now more than ever, I am starting to feel the lean toward digital magazines. The only space they take up is on your hard drive and it saves an awful lot of paper. There are a lot of great digi-mags out there, which you have probably already heard of: VivaLaModa (a handmade fashion mag), N.E.E.T. magazine (for grassroots creativity), and Antler Mag (inspiring ideas and design) to name a few. But one of my favorites has to be Mankind Magazine, that Erin of Design for Mankind puts together each month. The newest issue just went up and its The Lazy Issue. Gotta love that! So, curl up with your laptop on the couch and don’t forget a snack. This looks like a good one (as usual).
