Favorite Magazine: The Gentlewoman
As much as I adore Fantastic Man, The Gentlewoman hits me in a way few magazines do. It's as much about the anachronistically brilliant use of Futura--my favorite typeface of all time--as it is the falsely modest layout and grid. It's "The Wrong Theory" writ large, fearless and aggressive. This magazine is superlatively brave in an era where so many titles settle mindlessly into conformist notions of modern publishing design.
