Matchbook Mag Issue #1
Matchbook Magazine launched it’s premiere issue last night (or I guess this morning). Haven’t heard of Matchbook? It’s a lifestyle magazine created by Katie Armour (of The Neo-Traditionalist) and Jane Lilly Warren (of Lox Papers). I literally read the entire thing twice. My favorites were definitely the 50 Classics For Your Closet (with a printable checklist – isn’t that thoughtful?), and the 10 Secrets to a Charmed Life with Miles Redd. Oh, and the last page with the illustration of Ms. Hepburn’s handbag was adorable. I really like that it isn’t just a “style” magazine or a “decor” magazine: It truly incorporates every aspect of a modern lady’s life, and it is done in an intelligent way. It’s like the classier older sister of Jane Magazine.
It’s also worth noting that they have amazing advertisers…so the advertisements don’t seem pushy or annoying. I can’t wait for the next issue. Go read it immediately!
Also check out the magazine’s Tumblr Strikes Our Fancy, as well as the blogs of the cofounders (linked above).
