Print: A unique collection of stories and captivating images; perfectly bound; tangible. It’s a thing of real beauty. We could go on forever defining why we love print. There’s just no denying its intimacy in a world of electronic everything. When you sit down with a magazine you can practically feel the clock tick a little slower. And when they’re good, you can feel the passion put into every page- from the editors, stylists, printers, story hunters. It’s why we continue to linger at the bookstore for hours versus scrolling for downloads on our tablet. It’s why we we choose a coffee “for here” versus a coffee “to go.” It’s why we can’t bear to throw away those old issues piled up on our floor. Print journals and magazines force us to slow down, challenge the daily status quo and encourage us to see beauty in a different form. So of course it’s not dying in our hearts!

  1. I’m so happy to see a story devoted to print magazines! It’s been years since I’ve subscribed to my favorites – Vogue, Elle Decor, Domino, Bazaar et al and I’m dying to have big glossy issues stacked up on my coffee table again!

  2. thank you so much for this post!! I adore print, and my dream is to pursue a career in fashion journalism. I’m wanting to work on the print side more than anything since fashion magazines are so dear to me. all of your selections were wonderful, but I’m also a fan of Nylon and Vogue. I was in Europe recently and picked up a copy of Vogue in every country I travelled to!
