Ronny & Lonny

Lonny-1

We’re so excited for our friend Ron Marvin who has a great feature on his work in the brand-new online magazine Lonny. The magazine looks lovely — it was started by two Domino Magazine alumni — and is full of fabulous products and interior design. One very cool feature afforded by the digital format is that you can hover over a product within an article and click on a link to its retailer. Some of our other faves featured in this issue are Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge and Eddie Ross (who was on Bravo’s Top Design). We definitely recommend checking it out.

Here’s what the editors of Lonny have to say:

In a time when shelter publications are turning their last pages…

OUR MISSION is to reopen the doors of accessible design. By embracing an online platform we provide inspiration at the click of a finger, directly connecting our readers to their favorite products and resources. Our freedom from page limits means that we can share more content in each issue, delivering an intimate look into the way people really live.
At Lonny, we value independent thinking and believe not in following trends but rather in making choices that lead to happiness. We believe that good design and affordable design can coexist and that true inspiration can be found in the teeniest of homes or in the grandest of spaces.

Jalouse

Thought I’d do a post on the French magazine, Jalouse. All I got to say is that the photography, layouts, and content are mesmerizing. I love it all. I hope print magazines are here to stay. I would be very upset to see all print go away.canada goose womens

UPPERCASE Magazine

uppercasecover1

I was so excited to receive my copy of UPPERCASE Magazine (a brand-new quarterly magazine published by Uppercase Gallery in Calgary) in the mail last week. I haven’t been able to read it super thoroughly yet, but from my few cursory looks, it is fantastic. I was a little nervous about subscribing without ever seeing it, but went ahead because the UPPERCASE blog is so well curated. So far, I have not been disappointed. Definitely check it out if you can — the magazine is available at a few retailers and, of course, at UPPERCASE.

The cover illustration is by Madrid-based artist Blanca Gómez; her work is available for purchase at her site and at her etsy shop. The lovely script on the lower-left corner of the cover is Mary Read (which Owen discussed in last week’s Font-y Friday).

BLVR RDR Zeroeth Issue

I commute on MUNI, BART and CalTrain 5 days, roughly 13 hours a week.

I’m not complaining; in some ways it’s awesome. For instance, reading time has been restored to my life in spades. In the last few months I read some good novels, tried to read the most annoyingly terrible book ever to have been called genius, read not as much nonfiction as I should have, and found myself regularly looking over the shelves with to figure out my next read.
