Do you want to try “CUL DE SAC 24x30”? It’s the magazine that I publish. Quarterly. About shape of things. About design. From Italy. There is a site too: www.culdesacmagazine.com .
Enjoy it.
Thanks.

(feeling very English and ashamed of such self promotion, but…) our magazine, icon is on the list and we’re great. we do architecture and design and that. our website wasn’t on Paul Nixon’s list - have a look (it’s also great) at www.icon-magazine.co.uk.

speak magazine was on that list…but it’s been out of print for some time…such a great magazine it’s worth reading if you can find an old copy…i think maybe you can order them from their website…the editor, dan rolleri, says he’s writing a book…something to look forward to for sure…

hey alex, say “hi” to elise…heh…

Icon is great. I picked that one up frequently when I was interning in London.

It would have been more interesting if, instead of just being sorted alphabetically, it was sorted by the number of recommendations, or, perhaps, by genre…

Who’s gonna break it to this guy that “Mad” and “Mad magazine” are the same thing?
