My backorder copy of “Smith Journal" came in the mail a little while ago. A magazine which is - as they put it on their website - "An Australian Men’s Magazine full of photography, stories, people, adventures, interesting conversations and gentlemanly style".
I’ve yet to start reading it, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it when I do.
The first issue is “Typewriters & the men who loved them”. There’s pages devoted to certain authors, screenwriters, and musicians (Ernest Hemingway, Woody Allen, Bob Dylan, etc) who used typewriters, and whether or not they loved or hated them, what model they used etc, along with a picture of said model. Really cool stuff.
The magazine is done on high quality matte-finish paper, with some near-full page photographs, and as an insert, you get a pull-out poster of “Common knots” (which now resides on the wall near my desk).
