Amazing: frankie magazine
I know I mentioned some magazines recently, but lately this medium has become really interesting and inspiring to me. It might be even a little more fun because the good stuff is hard to get and most of them are bi-monthly or quarterly. It’s a nice change of pace: hunting, purposeful acquisition, anticipation, actual content.
This morning I learned about frankie, an Australian magazine full of pretty much everything I love — design, decorating, crafts, food, fashion, books & film, music. It is a bi-monthly publication that’s in its 52nd issue. Because it’s from around the world, it comes out in Philadelphia seven weeks after it hits the stands in Australia, so we’re pretty much always an issue behind, which somehow endears it to me even more. More excitement. If that really bothers you, they offer digital subscriptions too.
It is sold in one place — one place! — in Philadelphia, which happens to be one block from my office. Guess where I went during my lunch break. And I asked for a bag, so I can keep it looking nice. Maybe I will save it for my trip to Phoenix in a week…
Issue 51 , the one available in the U.S. now (it came out there in December, soon we’ll have their February edition as they put out the next one in April), features Molly Ringwald and Twiggy.
