i’m jealous of anthology magazine

Ode to magazines week: day three…

Oooh, this is a good one! So, I know that more and more magazines are taking their articles and layouts online, which is great, but there is also something really nice about holding a printed piece in your hands… especially when it looks like this! Anthology is a gorgeous new quarterly lifestyle magazine that hits the shelves this fall. And if their beautifully illustrated cover, gorgeous layouts of inspirational interiors, and conversations with some very interesting people {ie blogger extraordinaire, Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge} is not enough to make you jealous, they’ve also created a lovely two minute stop-motion video, titled Print Is Not Dead, to go along with the launch, and here’s why:

“I wanted there to be a dual message: one announcing our magazine and another showing how print and paper are important in our lives. I drafted the concept of a woman going through her day and how paper (specifically a magazine) is a big, but subtle part of her daily experience. Even though I knew it was going to be a ton of work, I also wanted much of the set and the props to be made from paper.” ~ Meg Mateo Ilasco, Creative Director

{… oh, and thanks to Erin Loechner of Design for Mankind, I can send you off to read her exclusive┬á interview with Anthology’s Creative Director Meg Mateo Ilasco… enjoy!}
