Blueprint

Martha Stewart's Blueprint

Got a copy of Blueprint from Kino today. I kinda like it. Some readers have complained that it lacks depth. But to me, I covers almost everything that I’m into.

However, I’m not too crazy about the design of the Fling masthead. I looks a little anemic / anorexic to me. For the insides, they used a bit of kursivschrift, so I guess they were trying to create something that went with that. It looks like the result of a focus group.

Note: Now I’m not so sure about the kursivschrift, could all just be fling.

Oh yes, I also bought a copy of Denyse Schmidt’s Quilts. It’s such a lovely book.
