Its Skin Sweats

From a great Flickr set of scans from Omni magazine.

OMNI magazine! Man, I used to love ganking this from the library when I was little. Whatever happened to these crazy nuts?

From the newly refreshed and subsequently deceased 02138 magazine.

The final issue never made it to the presses, but is available online here, and worth a look for Pentagram’s design.

The Wire, November 2008

The Wire, November 2008

I got a kick out of this clever design for the November issue of The Wire, which covers “unofficial channels” in music distribution.

Maghound

Maghound is a new website run by Time, Inc. that allows you to manage and modify your magazine subscriptions from a central location on a month-by-month basis. So you can cherry pick which issues you want to receive, or try out new magazines without risking a full year subscription. It was dubbed “The Netflix for magazines” over at the Freakonomics blog, and that’s an apt description for their tiered subscription model, which ranges from 3 to 8+ magazines per month.

Definitely seems like an interesting service that I would like to try given my love of magazines, especially in the internet age. Unfortunately, Maghound lacks the selection that makes a service like Netflix work: currently, The Economist, Monocle, The New Yorker, The Wire, Gastronomica, and Meatpaper are nowhere to be found.

Some of my artwork has been pretty anti-Bush, so maybe it was somewhat irresponsible for [The Atlantic] to hire me.

The Nonist Strikes Again

The Nonist Strikes Again

Amazing scans of satirical Russian magazines published between 1905 and 1908. From The Nonist, of course.

Monocle blurs, like no Western magazine I’ve seen, the boundary between advertising and editorial. Advertiser products and services are frequently mentioned in features, reviews and articles, without any indication that there is a business relationship involved. In almost every issue, cross-branded “advertorial” is delivered in the house design vocabulary, typeface, and copy voice. The product placement even extends to the (awful) manga, where it stands out like an orangutan with an erection at the office Christmas party.

True. I do like the idea of one in depth interview per issue though.
