Sweet Ideas By Sweet Paul

December 16, 2011

I know, I know. I must be the last blogger in the universe to write about crafter and blogger Paul Lowe’s most recent issue of Sweet Paul. It’s not that I live under a rock — I’ve been following the praises echoing through the blog circuit for weeks and read it cover to cover the moment he sent me a link when it went live. Oh yes, I know Sweet Paul. Who doesn’t these days!?

Paul so nicely sent a printed version of this issue and it arrived with a loud thud through my door which meant nothing but good things, and lots of them, could be expected in this jam-packed issue. I found it completely exciting to flip through Sweet Paul with my bare hands as I compared how the digital version stood against the print, deciding which came up the winner and honestly…. My verdict is, I still adore Sweet Paul and all his digital radiance. Even after indulging in the print version, I love how the light emitting from my mac gives his gorgeous images an almost angelic glow and I like that I can bring it with me anywhere on my iPad to show my friends. I thought I’d share a few spreads from it that I found inspiring. What about you, print or digital when it comes to e-mags that you first fell in love with online? Preferences, c’mon, anyone?

    Love the idea of folding the pages of the book, but then I hate that I am damaging the book at the same time. C’est la vie!

    Great points…I loved the e-version of Pure Green Magazine and it appears that they just went to print only-no more online version and I loved reading their online mag version. I’m a graphic designer working mainly in print so I feel almost guilty with this comment but to not have access now to a favorite e-mag was a bit sad.
