The Plant joins StackPosted by Steve Watson on Friday, August 16th, 2013
The first time I saw The Plant I was fascinated.
It’s a weird magazine – beautifully made with some absolutely gorgeous photography, it takes an elliptical, sometimes almost spiritual approach to its subject matter. It immerses itself in the moist fecundity of plant life, losing itself amongst the leaves and going in so close you can almost smell the compost. It’s an artistic response to the plants, flowers and trees we see around us in our homes and gardens, mixing beautiful illustrations with that great photography.
And yet it’s also a hands-on plant-lover’s resource, going into detail on the best way to care for particular plants, how to press flowers and generally bring a bit more greenery into your life.
It’s utterly unlike any other magazine I’ve ever seen, which means it’s exactly the sort of thing I like to send out on Stack. I’m really pleased we’ve managed to bring it on board, and I can’t wait to send it out – Stack subscribers won’t have to wait too long now until it lands in their home / work / wherever else we send it. And of course if you’re not already a subscriber there’s still time to get in there and secure your copy – just go to the subscription page and choose the Stack package that’s right for you.
