Matchbook Magazine

28 January 2011 | 0 Comments

The design blog world is all a-flutter with Matchbook Magazine – the latest in a steady stream of shelter/lifestyle mags (seems everyone’s still trying to fill the void left by Domino).

I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical about Matchbook.  I only have so many hours in the day, and as much as I love wasting time online, a magazine has to be really great to hold my attention.  So I checked it out, thinking I’d give up after reading a few pages.

But then I stumbled on this page:

I want just about EVERYTHING here.  Look, there’s a bookplate that says “This book belongs to Avery”!

And then I kept reading, and saw articles about Anna Bond (of Rifle Paper Co), Peggy Guggenheim, Princess Margaret (who knew she was an “it girl”?), Burberry, Jemma Kidd, Warby Parker… and that’s just in the first half of the magazine.

Matchbook Magazine, you’ve won me over.
