Selvedge Magazine

Selvedge is one of my very favorite magazines ~ it is expensive and only comes bimonthly, but it is one of my indulgences ~ always filled with wonderful eye candy and textile related articles. The subhead reads, 'the fabric of your life: textiles in fashion, fine art, interiors, travel and shopping' ~ the magazine always has a good variety of articles and beautiful photography. There are also sections that highlight textile related exhibits, books and and special offers. Even the advertisements(websites) are interesting to look into as there are many artists and small companies represented ~ the majority from the UK. Check out a few highlights from the July/August 2008 issue below.

One of my very favorites, too. I love it so much that I think I may have to start buying the back issues.
