Just found this *great great great* news from "The Magaziner": David Carson (we hope you do know who actually he is...) will be back with a printed magazine entitled C A R S O N. I copied and pasted here the article from The Magaziner:
The one and only David Carson — who was back in the magazine blogosphere eye recently thanks to his covers for Little White Lies and Huck — will be the art and design director of a new print magazine launching in 2011.
Titled C A R S O N (the spacing between letters is deliberate), it will cover art, culture, design fashion, and maybe more surprisingly, current events, within themed issues.
From Alex Storch, the editor-in-chief:
I love to read real stories about real people and events, and then try to interpret them visually. C A R S O N is a way of seeing our world in an exciting way, which in these times can often seem confusing, overwhelming, and/or soulless.
Storch and Carson — both based in Venice — are still on the lookout for contributors, and hope to bring an editorial context “that stretches past tabloid-style journalism.”
The magazine’s website is currently not much more than a placeholder, but we do know that the magazine will launch sometime in 2011, it will be published bi-monthly, and that a 6-issue subscription will go for $20.
Very exciting indeed, and it’s just the kind of news that I love hearing in this era of “print death” desperation.

British Remains has designed a couple of really interesting t-shirts and an handkerchief to commemorate the Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. We find them so funny and so irreverent. Now they've finally available on the Honeyee Store. A must have!

I love magazines. I simply can't live without having piles of magazines on my shelves. That's why when I discovered MAG SPREADS I got really happy. I copied and pasted their "Manifesto" here:
MagSpreads is dedicated to the process and progress of magazine design and the publishing industry and its practitioners, students and enthusiasts. Its purpose is to define and promote the world’s best magazine design, and provide a place where the magazine design community can review, critique and stay informed of the latest industry trends and design projects being created in the field.
Very very nice! What do you think?!?
