Inspiration Pause #5......Mags



As wonderful as the internet is for reference (and in my case, wasting time LOL), I love hardcopy magazines. There are so many publications that offer constant inspiration. Doll mags, fashion mags, decorating, craft ideas, jewelry publications, the list is pretty close to endless. There are also countless art magazines.

Two of my favorite art/culture magazines at the moment are Juxtapoz and Hi-Fructose. Some of the artists and the work profiled is so off-the-wall and bizarre, however the sheer creativity of it inspires me.

Oh yes! I love the feel of a real magazine or book. I love to turn the pages, back and forth, and gaze at the photos, linger over the words. The internet is great, but it can't compete with images and words on paper.

These two magazines are unfamiliar to me, but I'll be looking for them on my next trip to the book store. Thanks for posting this info!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs,
Angela

I'm a hard copy person too...I love bookstores. And as wonderful as the internet is it just isn't the same as getting comfy and opening a new magazine or book...
