Oh Comely is looking for a craft editor and a features writer.
125 Magazine is now taking photographic submissions for its next incredible tome, with ‘Time’ as a starting point.
The new issue of Port is also out, with a foody theme. There’s a Juergen Teller shoot with Nigella Lawson, secret cities from Paloma Picasso and food-inspired fashion shoots with summer staples from Giorgio Armani, Alfred Dunhill, Prada and Christian Dior. Sneak peek here and nice little review here.
For those in or considering the independent magazine game, The Little Magazine Coalition would be a good friend to have. They’re just getting started but are striving to “make small magazines more visible and professionally viable, through gatherings, workshops and the fostering of business partners”.

Unveiled in the June issue of British Vogue is ‘The Health Initiative’, a pact between the 19 international Vogue editors to encourage a healthier approach to body image within the industry, working only with models who they consider “are healthy and help to promote a healthy body image" and who are " ambassadors for the message of healthy body image". Will be interesting to see how this plays out.
And finally, a magazine cover Tumblr for a spot of inspiration.
