Don’t even get me started. SO many great magazines… all gone!
Gourmet… (Food & Wine is still my fav, but Gourmet was interesting, too)
Dominio… (even though, I think they gave up long before the end)
House and Garden… (but I was at war with them just before their demise so I don’t feel so bad about them)
And Blueprint… oh, Blueprint… please come back, Blueprint. (Yes, in many ways it was a silly little magazine focused on silly little things that silly little people thought they needed wanted, but the art direction was stellar… STELLAR!)
And the funny thing, I STILL have most of these magazines filed away (all of Blueprint with the exception of the first one… somebody help a sister out), ready to flip open for instant design inspiration (well, NOT House & Garden)
But here’s one most of you may have forgotten about (or perhaps it was never even on your radar at all)
The year: 2000! 2000? Sort of blows your mine, doesn’t it?
I still remember the day the check for my subscription came back in the mail… UNCASHED… with a note saying that the magazine was folding. oh noes! *whine* But, I loved it. So sad.
I’m sort of having fun flipping through SPACE here on a snowy night in Virginia. It’s kind of funny to look at these photos now.
In light of the iPad launch, that aqua-coloured iMac is sort of cracking me up. And that two-inch thick mac laptop is hysterical. Oh, we we so virginal and naive back then.
But one thing you gotta say about IKEA, the lines of their stuff is still pretty classic: Style never goes out of style!
However, I can not forgive them for that white faux fur of the back of those puffy leather sofas.
No, just no!
