It is fantastic to see a new magazine hit the streets with a creative cover that stands well out. The new Smith Journal, from the publishers of Frankie, is elegantly designed, has quirky but smart content and is lovely to hold. It's very flippable with much to read and ogle inside. It was certainly a coup to get Alain de Botton as a contributor, who again astounds with his prescient observations. $11.95 well spent.
