Cartier Art Magazine

I don’t read magazines much anymore.  I would prefer to use my reading time for books – a recent favorite being David Grossman’s To The End of the Land – and there are some blogs I aggregate with Pulse and troll through once weekly.  But there are a couple of magazines I adore and subscribe to at a fairly hefty price, Cartier Art Magazine being one of them.

I like single subject issues.  Cartier Art, published three times a year at a per magazine price of 15 Euros, is a gorgeous look at art and the art of living.

The most recent issue is on Flowers and it covers a wide range of topics:  tulipomania, flower design, flower symbolism and edible flowers among them; it also presents stunning portfolios of flowers and interesting people, flowers and fashion, flowers and jewelry, all saturated photographs printed on heavy, coated stock by Milanese printing masters.

Other favorite issues:  Design, Mirage, Seduction, Fantasy, Mediterranean, Colors of India.  Many are available on backorder; all are inexhaustible sources of inspiration.
