I subscribe to T-Post, a monthly magazine in the form of a T-shirt. So i kill two birds at one go – i do not have to shop for T-shirts (my main staple of wear) with a gurantee that i will be unlikely to run into someone on the street with the same garb (because it is limited edition and i hate it when that happens, hence the habit of shopping for clothes from overseas online retailers), and the fact that i get updated with quirky news that you don’t normally see in conventional self-respecting newspapers (i.e. The Economist) or useless tabloids (i.e. [insert name here – i don’t read any so i don’t know]).
I just saw that the creators of T-Post have teamed up with a design school to come out with ways to recycle past issues. Thought it was fantastic, some of the ideas that were thrown up.
How cool is that?? And the remarkable thing is that i used to scoff at design and art, partly because of a bad experience with art lessons in high school and partly because i sucked at it. Aha. All those Design magazines (Frame, Monocle) and Architecture magazines (Architectural Digest, Mark) that i read are rubbing off me.
