I have a bit of a problem with magazines. I’m kind of obsessed. I have subscriptions to 8 magazines that are delivered to the house (Oprah, Chatelaine, Toronto Life, Fashion, Wired, Spacing, Canadian House & Home, and Uppercase), and when I’m out, I’ll often pick up others on the newsstand (The New Yorker, Budget Travel, Vanity Fair, Ready Made, Dwell, Style at Home and New York Magazine are often found lying around here). Oh, and don’t even get me started on the online magazines I read.
But without a doubt, my favourite magazine right now is Uppercase. Uppercase is a gorgeous, award-winning, proudly Canadian magazine about design, illustration, and a bunch of other creative stuff. I love the content of most magazines, but the design is also very important to me. Uppercase is a perfect mix of gorgeous layout and design. Even the paper it’s printed on is spectacular.
I used to get HOW magazine (subject: print design) for creative inspiration, but Uppercase inspires me more. And I used to get Domino magazine (before it went under), and Uppercase has interviews and showcases of quirky people and their interiors, filling the void left by Domino.
Uppercase Issue 7 just came out (there are 4 annually) and I should get my copy in the mail any day now. I’m really excited…
