After reading this month’s issue of Metropolis from cover to cover (yes, in paper!), I have to say it is probably the magazine’s best yet. From the inspiring essays (John Hockenberry, Bruce Sterling and Deyan Sudjic) to Paul Makovsky’s interview with the always enigmatic Jasper Morrison, Peter Hall’s re-visitation of MoMA’s Good Design programme or Karrie Jacobs’ atmospheric review of the Kindle, this is just an extraordinary example of what magazine can and should be: an informed, topical and enlightened take on the world. It’s only a shame Metropolis keeps putting ads on odd pages… The result is a fractured, messy read. Considering pretty much all its content is available for free online, I would like to see the physical reading experience improved. We, its dedicated printed version readers, deserve it.
