i’ve been so thrilled of late to find all kinds of new magazine publications popping up and that print is indeed, not dead. as a former advertising print producer and art buyer, i have a long-standing love of ink on paper so real-life, tangible magazines and design books are definitely my jam. i recently randomly discovered blumenhaus, which is more of a luxurious hybrid of both an art book and a magazine combined, founded and designed with the greatest of care and creative curation by camille gressier & isabelle laydier kristensen.

blumenhaus travels back in time with a philosophical and romantic approach, written exclusively in english by a group of professional editors and journalists specialized in botany, and focuses as much on the aesthetic side — mixing contemporary visuals and antique archives, as on bringing botanical insight to its readers. blumenhaus is more than just a book, it will become a proud part of your interior displayed as a lifestyle object in your book stacks and on your coffee table. for more from blumenhaus follow them on instagram, check out their spotify playlists, and shop the magazine online and in these small shops. here’s a sneak peek — i think you’ll find yourself helplessly inspired.
