Taking a peek at Anthology Magazine

We've heard there's a new *print* design magazine in town- a great surprise considering the dreary state of the publishing industry. We haven't seen it in person, but here's to the new kid on the block- Anthology- described as "A new quarterly shelter and lifestyle print magazine that takes a narrative approach to its coverage of home décor, travel, design, entertaining, and culture. We envision the magazine as a collection of stories shared with readers."

Ok. Not gonna lie. Would love to see a photograph rather than an illustration on the next cover. Especially of beautiful San Francisco!

Anthology is the brainchild of San Francisco-based Meg Mateo Llasco and Ahn-Mihn Le, veterans of the newspaper/publishing/graphic design worlds. A few snippets of the photograhps you'll find inside:

You can preview the more of the inaugural issue here. From what I've seen, it seems rather Domino-esque, but perhaps with a more relaxed vibe. I'm interested in the interview with Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge. She's got a fabulous bed and upholstered headboard (this is an old pic) that is featured in this month's issue.

 A few more preview shots...loving any room with a big vintage map!

One comment- a single issue is $12 (as one friend mused, "is it printed in gold?" Ha!). But we do understand there is a lot of overhead that goes into creating these one's doing it for their health!

Have you read Anthology? Plan to subscribe? Any inside info we're missing? Tell us!

Respectfully, I agree with your friend's comment "is it printed with gold" If the magazine is online there is no printing of the magazine at all. In addition, before you can charge that kind of price you have to build up a loyal following. Prove yourself. For now I;ll read Lonny for free or buy a magazine on the stands for $6.00.
