Port magazine launch issue

Jeremy Leslie at Magculture has reviewed new men’s mag Port. Like all his posts, it’s well worth reading. Particularly worth noting the reference to typographer and Eagle designer Ruari McLean‘s book – OUP described it as the world’s first book about magazine design when it came out.

This post is being written in Pages on an iPad and pasted into WordPress. Why? Because when I type in WordPress I see nothing! Previews OK though. Weird. Any solutions out there? As a writer I find the iPad frustrating – forever switching between keyboards. And who would have thought the navigation arrows we so important? Wayheyhey – there’s an app for that. Thanks Sarah at the FT!

GQ heads for India

April 7, 2008

Men’s monthly GQ is to launch in India – following its Conde Nast stablemate Vogue. Sanjiv Bhattacharya, a British journalist who was features editor of GQ in the UK, will be editor with most of the material generated locally.

Dylan Jones, the editor of British GQ, is a consultant. Jones uses the Observer story to take a swipe at his competition – weekly freebie ShortList as well at National Magazines’ Esquire: He claims Esquire‘s relaunch under Jeremy Langmead has been ‘a total failure’, because ‘they are selling 10 per cent less at news-stands. They’ll be giving it away at tube stations next.’
