Object of Desire...

Those who know me well, or read my blog regularly, know there's few things that get me as excited as a new book or magazine...

And look what came in the post today...


Now this is issue 3, but I'd never heard of it before a chance comment in an article in last weekend's paper...

I found mine at magazine cafe, but I understand it's also available in the States...

It's about the size of Vogue and this issue has over 200 pages! It's also like the big glossies in that it starts with a fair few high-end adverts, but believe me, that is the only similarity...

Starting with the cover... one of my personal bugbears with magazines is they slip everywhere - especially off my lap. But this lovely has a textured cover - how clever is that? And inside the paper is a mixture of semi-glossy pages and, lo and behold, recycled pages!!



And it's packed full of interviews with interesting women... some I've certainly heard of, like Adele and Fatima Bhutto, others are new to me, like the singer Laetitia Sadier and the artist Germaine Kruip.

Sadly, The Gentlewoman is only published twice a year :( but you can be sure I'll be getting the Autumn/Winter issue!!

PS I'm rapidly approaching my 100th post - this is no. 98!!! and I'm planning another giveaway :)
so watch this space.....

You are an extremely bad influence, but thank you.
