Current Obsession is the name of this special magazine. And obsessed you can easily become. The youth issue is about growing, about becoming who you want to be or who you might be already, about jewelery and how youth is applied. So many beautiful things are in this issue and ...

Kinfolk

25th August 2014, reviewed by Chris Martin

Acid

14th July 2014, reviewed by Dan Rowden

The best magazines are ones that present a topic in a way that you don't expect. Acid is a surf magazine, but not as you've seen before. It's a full-fledged modern magazine; an interesting and influencing design, matched with varied, informative content. An item you want to keep on your ...

Ernest (print)

7th July 2014, reviewed by Freddie Harrison

By way of gentle introduction, Ernest started out life in the form of its (now extensive) online presence. Somewhere between the Pinterest boards, the Instagram feed and its own website, Ernest carved out its intentions to be, "a blog, iPad magazine and biannual printed journal for curious and adventurous gentlefolk." ...
