I gave in, I bought a subscription to Selvedge! I found out about this amazing magazine one day while looking for a "real" fiber magazine at my local Borders book store. One thing I do have to admit is, the subscription is not cheap but it's so well worth every penny. Here is a perfect description of what type of magazine Selvedge is, this one comes from the editor of Selvedge:
"Open a copy of Selvedge and you sense there is a philosophy that Selvedge readers subscribe to. A belief system based on a cerebral and sensual addiction to textiles in all forms. Readers share a belief in the importance of their material surroundings and a passion for the beautiful and beautifully made. Our aim is simple: to provide a textile publication which fits seamlessly into their creative lifestyle. Directed towards an international, discerning audience, Selvedge covers fine textiles in every context: fine art, interiors, fashion, travel and shopping." As an art director for many years and working part of that time in editorial, I have to say this magazine has excellent art direction. The photography is beautiful and the magazine has a consistent look from issue to issue. For you folks that enjoy beautiful things check out their website here, you just might fall in love as I did. I posted some pages so you can have a peek of all the lovely eye candy, yummmm.
