I'm a little bit of a magazine junkie--fashion and interior design are big choices, as are cultural mags like Laphams. Esopus is New York based, twice yearly magazine, that covers the whole spectrum of culture in what they term an 'unmediated' enivorment, i.e. no ads or commercially driven editorial material. The latest issue is their 20th magazine and celebrates their decade of publishing. It is essentially 20 separate magazines, plus a music cd, collected in cool cover-packaging created from marbled paper. It's $20 and for that money you get a world of interesting things to look at and read about, from Matthew Weiner's Mad Men notes to reflections on Claude Monets inspirational gardens, and everything in between those two things.
