Shall we eyeball some recent covers out of the UK? Where, for what it’s worth, I LOVE THE MAGAZINES. Half of them give you gifts! Half of them are wee, purse-sized little books of delight! Some of them are REALLY TRASHY (heat)! And then there is my favorite of all the glossy monthlies, Tatler, for which I pay an absurd fee to have delivered to my home and which I HAVE NEVER REGRETTED. They once had a whole sidebar about ridiculous British names that caused me and Heather to worry that The Royal We didn’t have a sufficiently crazily-named character and one of our major players is named after a font. It recently had an article about aristocratic menageries of yore which included a photo of a lemur (!) named Mah-Jongg (!!) on a deck-chair (!!!) OF SOMEONE’S YACHT! IT’S THE BEST.
Join me, won’t you?
