A good magazine is high on my list of sensory pleasures, reading an activity I always want to FEEL as well as DO, you know what I mean? The magazine I used to work for kept all our inventory in our small office, and we were on a floor with two other indie magazines that did the same, and so whenever I entered the office in the mornings I would be reminded of what a few hundred copies of freshly printed magazines smelled like, which is: great. They smell great. They smell like paper and ink and a slightly woodsy cardboard. They feel great, too; they make a satisfying swish when you turn a page, varying depending on the stock or gloss of paper, but always a motion specific to a magazine, another sensory element I appreciate. There's a joy to reading digital magazines, too, because screens and pixels can do things that pages and ink can't always accomplish. ALL magazines are good, that's my point, and I feel particularly strongly that we should be supporting independent magazines when we have the chance. There are so many good ones out there, just waiting to be held and read! Here's a few of the independent magazines I'm always returning to; what are your favorites? Add them here!
