Container Magazine

Posted on July 4th, 2013

I’ve written quite a bit here about the state of publishing in our current digital obsessed climate and I continue to be surprised and delighted with the number of interesting projects that keep emerging that challenge our conventional understanding of what a book and a magazine can and should be.

Huck #038

Posted on June 24th, 2013

I’ve been a big fan of issuu since it launched in the late 2000s and while the content available remains very uneven it has become an excellent resource for viewing and reading magazines online.

McSweeney’s Issue 42

Posted on February 5th, 2013

The literary canon is international in nature, spanning continents and countries, and there are very few of us who have read all the greats in their native tongues – Dostoevsky in Russian, Kafka in German, Borges in Spanish. Which poses an interesting, theoretical question: have we ever truly read Crime and Punishment if we’ve only … (More →)


Bad Day Issue 14

Posted on January 31st, 2013

I’m a huge fan of independent magazines and even though it’s been out for a while now, I just got my hands on the latest issue of the Toronto-based interview magazine, Bad Day (see our review of issue 13 here). This issue, which is tinted in a soft orange colour, features interviews with Agnès … (More →)
