This may sound a little crazy, so bear with us, but after years of experience in the world of magazines we can identify them by feel alone. Well, not the individual magazine titles, but the subject covered – different types of magazines use different grades and styles of paper. We would know a glossy fashion mag from a hobby publication, a weighty fashion compendium from a flimsy newspaper. Now, you might be saying “that’s simple”, and to some extent it is, but the type that is uniquely identifiable is the art magazine.
From the feel of the cover alone we could tell that this was going to a top quality publication – it is incredibly hard to convey the tactile sensation of such a mag, but it’s a wonderful matte finish that feels cool yet soft to the touch.
The Burlington (or the BVRLINGTON if you want to faithfully reproduce the font) is indeed a lovely publication, and essential reading for anyone fascinated by art and art history. It features looks at wonderful works of art that would otherwise require you to visit the gallery or museum where they are kept – explore the world of art whilst sitting at home, what more could you ask for?
