My review of The Magazine: The Book

A selection of articles from The Magazine. I’m not sure if the book has a particular theme, but I spotted two distinct themes in the pieces I liked.
One was hand crafts: cosplay, making clothes, type and printing. I feel like I don’t have anything that’s quite on that scale (so much of my life is digital), and I’d like to get there.
The other was places: a desert in Poland, the Yosemite mountains, a massive lava lamp. It’s boosted my sense of wanderlust, no doubt helped by the current lockdown.
I read it cover-to-cover (except John Siracusa’s piece about Journey, which I still haven’t played yet). It’s worth doing once – it’s all good – but if I pick it up again, it’ll probably be to read individual pieces that I remember.
