Favorite Magazine: Popular Mechanics

I find myself picking up Popular Mechanics more and more. The book is organized is such a beautifully complex way but still manages to feel simple. I love what they've been doing with covers. Using a simple small centralized image and then assaulting the surrounding real estate with type and color. The covers always feel like they have movement; like they're leading you somewhere exciting.

    couldn't agree more. The rich packaging, the tireless attention to detail, inspiring stuff.
