Sometimes the weekends just drag into your Mondays. And why shouldn’t they? Last Saturday, my day was made when my local English bookshop in Athens, Greece (I moved!) had for sale the latest edition of Flow Magazine International. How lovely is this cover by Anne Bentley? I love seeing ladies of diversity as cover models, even if they are illustrated. Check out some snippets from the rest of this edition that had me oohing and aahing:
Kind of quirky, right? It has self dubbed itself the paper lover’s magazine and it is easy to see why. The mix of photography, illustration, and confidence boosting articles make it a great pick in my book. Each edition, which comes out every 2-3 months, has a paper lovers feature such as a mini sketch pad for daily inspiration like the one in this edition.
Has this one reached the U.S. yet? It’s published out of Amsterdam, with editions in Dutch, French, and German, besides the English of the international version. This was one airport find that I won’t regret. It’s quite a bit more whimsical, slightly more reader friendly with a heavier focus on illustration work than other magazines from the coffee table independent magazine movement, such as Kinfolk and Cereal. Check it out!
