Archfarm and the greenest pasture

7 Sep

This is stolen from Warren Ellis, but I find the idea very interesting; a ready-to-print gilded-hipster PDF architecture mag/zine with embedded video in the digital version.

It does leave me with a feeling that Amazon’s Kindle is a bit lost in the wilderness though. I surely understand the lure of plain text in the classic style, but while I often want to pick up a solid novel, sometimes I want to leaf through a colour drenched, excessively-laid-out magazine. I can’t get excited about a device that can’t do both.

As an afterthought, I wonder what effect the Apple tablet might have on the scene.
