Anthology: Issue 1

13 Nov

I’ve been anxiously waiting for my copy of Anthology to arrive in my mailbox, and today was the day.

The magazine itself is a piece of art. The cover by Kris Atomic is insanely beautiful, colorful, and happy. (I already described how enamored I am with it here.) I want to frame it and hang it in my home. I love the refreshing and fun design, and the paper is a sturdy, thick paper stock that feels quite luxurious by typical magazine standards. The theme is the slow life—taking it easy and enjoying the simple pleasures in life—which is something we could all benefit from.

I really enjoyed the variety of the homes and people featured, and the fact that they covered cities across the U.S., not just on each coast—loved seeing Monroe, Louisiana make an appearance.

Some of my favorites from this issue:

• The graphic features and behind-the-scenes info in Making the Magazine.

• The layout, design, and information of Anatomy of a Lovely Bike

• The Southern Comfort feature and house tour. I love the artwork by Meredith Pardue (shown below).

I’m already looking forward to the next issue due out in January.
