New old-fashioned magazines
It may be in our own self-interest to promote online journalism, but we've always loved good old-fashioned magazines. Recently, we've noticed a handful of new, gorgeous print periodicals that remind us of our favorite well-known glossies--but with cool, modern twists.
If you like Better Homes and Gardens, try Wilder Quarterly
This new horticulture magazine ($19 per issue or $60 per year) is total eye candy for plant lovers, offering exquisite inspiration and unconventional tips for contemporary gardeners. The autumn issue includes advice on growing seasonal cauliflower and lush pictures from Yves Saint Laurent's Moroccan jardin.
If you like Vogue, try Herself
Ever wish you could see Marie Antoinette model for Mark Fast? Now you can, thanks to this entirely illustrated fashion rag ($16 per issue) that features drawings of inspirational women throughout history--Queen Elizabeth, Beyoncé, Barbie--all wearing next season's hottest designs.
If you like Real Simple, try Sweet Paul
Paul Lowe got his start as a prop stylist for big-name shelter magazines, so it only stands to reason that his new quarterly print publication ($25 per issue) would be the ultimate in home design and entertaining sophistication. Articles range from craftsy (DIY lampshades) to tasty (a recipe for pear galette), and all are easy on the eyes.
