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.
