    I think you’d love Cereal Magazine! Their photography & creative is beautiful, much like Kinfolk but in pursuit of food & travel.

    Love these- they are so well made, and something I want to display and not just toss after reading! Another favorite is Uppercase for the creative and curious, it has nice papercraft and graphic design articles.

    I feel the same way that you do about traditional magazines — just not that inspiring anymore. Or maybe it’s me: I’m just so busy, I don’t have time to leisurely read them anymore. So they’re no longer enjoyable the way they used to be.

    I just came across this article and had to tell you how much I also enjoy Verily! My sister started working there a few months ago and I just love their positive message. Taking a deeper look into everyday topics is great to read now a days with all the crazy tabloids!
