I have always loved magazines and papers. From Sounds and NME to football fanzines to The Face and Arena, Loaded and Jack.
And as sales fall I still hang in in there. Now it’s Monocle, Jocks & Needs, Proper, The Rig-Out and Pica Post.
Times change, we change and – of course -those are not as good as Arena. Nothing is but that’s just my own take on things.
One great online magazine I’ve read and followed since day one is Umbrella and I was delighted when I heard from its editor Anthony Teasdale that it was going to print in December.
I was even more delighted when I picked a copy up just before Christmas as it’s absolutely ace.
It’s so ace that if you haven’t already done so then you really must pick a copy up.
