Stack reviews Printed Pages

I had to double check that it was definitely Printed Pages we sent out this month – it seems so long ago. But it was, and copies should have reached even the most far-flung Stack subscribers by now, so here’s my review of the issue.

Printed Pages is one of those magazines that knows exactly why it’s in print. I think it comes in part from having a vast digital reach (via the It’s Nice That blog) so in a sense there’s no real *need* for them to be in print.

That must focus the mind in editorial meetings and the result is a magazine that makes the most of its form with beautiful big images and an effortless pacing of stories from long, in-depth opinion to quicker, lighter Q&As, all suffused with a distinctly Printed Pages sense of fun.

The summer issue will be out in the next few weeks and I can’t wait to see what they do with it. Fingers crossed they manage to find another piece of fruit to stroke an egg on the cover.
