Breathe: List Journal
This magazine was just eye-catching with the special foil treatment and the fun illustrations on the cover. The inside is even more beautiful. The content is very spare, but that's ok. It's an interactive book that the reader is supposed to fill out and reflect about their life. The inside of this special issue magazine is beautifully illustrated and has a nice layout.
Unfortunately, this magazine fell apart after 2 days of reading and filling out. For 16 $ I am definitely expecting a better book binding quality. There are better quality magazines for less money that are lasting for a longer amount of time.
The idea and the design are great, but the falling apart of the magazine after two (!) days is a downside and shows unprofessionalism. I definitely will not purchase this magazine again, even when the illustrations are tempting to buy.
Give me a heads up if you have any magazine recommendations! I am still searching for an affordable magazine for creatives with focus on illustration here in the states. I already have a few favorites, but I'm curious about what you have in mind! Thank you!
