  • The latest CASA BRUTUS (73) is their annual “Tokyo Best 100” issue, and as you can imagine, is well worth picking up since it acts as a great guide to the things you should be checking out while in town. They do use up a bit too many of their selections on Omotesando Hills though.
  • PEN (172) offers up “World Architects’ Ideas for Living,” which translates as an international guide to the best in home design. It’s a nice selection of house porn, and is extremely heavy on the photography.
  • With the latest BRUTUS (590) we get another over-sized fashion issue, this time in the guises of their “2006 S&S Style Book.” Not really my thing, but probably of interest to the fashionistas out there.
  • The Spring 2006 issue of MEUBLES (04) is another nice mook covering all things that relate to the interior. This time they feature a look at classic furniture pieces from top designers, and also include a terrific walking guide to Tokyo interior shops.
