Some Magazine Reading

Just got back from Junkudo, where I was leafing through some magazines. The latest CASA BRUTUS looks at Japanese design hotels. I don’t think there was one featured spot where I would mind spending a night. Oh, to lead the life of the jet-setter… The new issue of PEN has a cover story on beautiful book design, and it mentions a couple of nice-looking bookshops in Ebisu that I need to visit next time I’m in the area. The new COMPOSITE is out, although they don’t have it featured on their website yet. I was surprised to see a full-page image of Cornelius and Joi Ito in the latest BRUTUS — then again, I think they’re related (maybe cousins).

Update: Joi Ito wrote a post about the BRUTUS article, and it includes the same image they ended up using.
