I am very happy to report that the PARIS REVIEW has landed at the shops! I mentioned a bit ago that carrying issues at WK has been on my wish list for ages. After I wrote that post I contacted them that very day and placed my order. To my delight, the stacks were waiting for me when we returned from New York, and are now out on the floor ready to be gobbled up.
They really make a great collection. That was my thought about carrying many of the back issues. Similar to old New Yorkers, you can just pick up a copy and be transported by an article or an interview, so the magazine being the ‘current’ issue is not really so important. Plus I really like the coloring of the spines together and think they would look pretty swell in a bookcase or stacked on a desk. What is on the outside is almost as good as what is on the inside!
