Above Magazine relaunch

Above Magazine relaunches
Tomorrow, December 10, sees the launch of the new-look Above Magazine.
Focusing on the environment and green lifestyle, the new issue features new artwork from American photographer and adventurer Peter Beard, who shot Eva Mendes for the cover; photographs by Gilles Bensimon; and eco-conversation between Tom Dixon and novelist Stephanie Theobald; other contributors include Ali Hewson and Sam Roddick. Nicolas Rachline, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Above Magazine says, ‘Our goal is to become the destination publication for information and inspiration about how to save beauty and preserve the environment on both collective and individual levels.’ Above Magazine is published quarterly by Centoria Limited.
“Responding to the urgent need for sustainable living, Above magazine calls upon the environmentally conscious and everyone else interested in the future by sharpening its focus on the endangered beauty of the world.
It is our firm belief that photography, the plastic arts, fashion, architecture and design can be instrumental in raising awareness about the need to preserve nature and we aim to share our opinionated, yet aesthetic vision, with our readers.
Our team is composed of people who believe that the evolution of our world and the people in it matters deeply; who value respect above all, for themselves, for others and for their surroundings, wherever they may be. Above magazine is made by and for those who recognize that the true appeal of beautiful objects and places derives from their inherent rarity and fragility. For them, desirable often means simple rather than extravagant, and living more responsibly without succumbing to self-righteousness is one of the greatest forms of sophistication.
Above is a new kind of lifestyle magazine. Our inspiration lies in the ever so diverse beauty of men and women, the preciousness of the earth and the challenges and opportunities of the future. We are committed to promoting an art of living that improves the environment without depriving daily life of its intrinsic pleasures. Our contributors are among the world’s great photographers and writers, who freely showcase here the splendours of a vanishing world and remind us of the immediate, vital, need to safeguard what remains of it.”

With a 25-year track record as the leading magazine for architecture and design, Blueprint is regarded by many around the world as the original design magazine. Following the magazine’s recent relaunch, it was described by The Observer newspaper as the ‘design bible’. Blueprint’s award-winning design sets it apart from other magazines. Published monthly, it is lovingly produced in large format on the best quality paper, with photography and illustration of the highest standard. But its long-standing appeal is also due to the finest criticism, news and feature writing on design and architecture, directed at professionals and non-professionals, alike. The magazine takes a parallel approach to the different design disciplines, reflecting a belief that fashion, product, furniture and architectural design can share ideas. As editor Vicky Richardson says: ‘Blueprint aims to use the subject of design to reveal the workings of society. The magazine is about the important role that design and architecture can play in shaping the world.’

Things Magazine

Things Magazine

“things magazine was originally founded in 1994 by a group of writers and historians based at the Victoria & Albert Museum/Royal College of Art in the belief that objects can open up new ways of understanding the world.

Now an independent magazine, things has built a reputation as a home for new writing – essays, reviews, short stories and poems – about objects and their meanings. The website contains a weblog, photography galleries, special projects, searchable archives and the occasional on-line only article.”
