Here’s five of the best contemporary reads covering everything from modern film to community based articles all the way from Australia.
In a time where we’re very rarely away from technology it may seem odd that we’re suggesting you sit down and enjoy a good, old fashioned paper and ink magazine.
But, if you can get past that idea then these next few publications will hopefully be right up your street. You may not have noticed these amongst the red tops and broadsheets in WHSmiths, but they should definitely be on your radar now.
1. Collect (Australia)
2. Yippee Ki-YAy!
With such a brilliant name like that it doesn’t really matter what they write about does it? If you do still care to know: Yippee Ki-Yay will provide you with enough film info to get you through film festivals like an expert. Comprised of bold imagery, interviews and reviews, this modern read will have you looking extra refined on the 7:50 commute to work.
3. Works That Work
When something is what it says on the tin, most people usually like it. Now although I can’t speak for everyone, I can say this independent’s creatively shot images and unpretentious approach to Art & Design is rather refreshing to say the least. Providing the reader, that’s you (hopefully), with creative designs that are as practical as they are pretty. Or more simply put…Works That Work.
4. Delayed Gratification
This wonderfully thought-provoking magazine plays on one of our favourite past times, appreciating things in hindsight. Something we all tend to do on a daily basis but get little satisfaction from. Delayed Gratification allows the reader to not only enjoy hindsight, but appreciate the power it has to shine a light on international events, news and stories from the past quarter of the year.
