Recommended for you: 25 FLIPBOARD MAGAZINES YOU NEED TO READ
#1 COLORS (Treviso, Italy)
“Once renowned for its controversial images of war and AIDS, Benetton’s magazine has switched focus and now explores big global subjects using an ingeniously simple form of visual storytelling. The text is minimal but packed with illuminating information, making this a magazine that will literally change the way you see the world.”
#2 HELLO MR. (Brooklyn, USA)
“Hello Mr. is the magazine we sent out on Stack last month. Ostensibly a magazine ‘about men who date men’, the quality of its writing means it reaches far beyond its gay target audience, and again and again subscribers have told me they wouldn’t normally have picked it up but absolutely fell in love with it.”
#3 FAT (Helsinki, Finland)
“Concocted by a gang of art provocateurs, this annual magazine views contemporary culture from the unique position of Finland’s capital. Big, weird, and born in a dark place, Fat is unlike any other art magazine.”
“The magazine that’s proud to be ‘last to breaking news’, Delayed Gratification looks back over the events of the last three months and returns to stories after the media circus has moved on. Funny and informative in equal measure, it’s a fantastic example of print providing a way to slow down.”
#5 WRAP (Oxford, England)
“Part-magazine, part-wrapping paper, Wrap commissions the best illustrators to create lovely thick sheets of gift wrap, then talks to them about their work. An ingenious idea, and a great way to make sure your presents always look way cooler than they really are.”
#6 PRINTED PAGES (London, England)
“The print magazine made by the It’s Nice That empire, Printed Pages presents a quarterly digest of the very best from the worlds of art and design.”
#7 WEAPONS OF REASON (London, England)
“A magazine so new it doesn’t even exist yet! Weapons of Reason comes out this month, launched as ‘a magazine to save the world’. The first issue is dedicated to the Arctic, going deep into the realities of what’s happening there and what that means for the rest of us.”
