Nathan Marsh Reader Find

By Nathan Marsh in Cool Websites on Tuesday 13 August 2013

Clearly Stated, a project of Ian Aleksander Adams and Josué Rivera, is both a literary publication and a collaborative game for the contributors.

Paper Mag pointed us to Kindling Quarterly, a new magazine that celebrates fatherhood and hipster dads, with a comment that it’s ‘kind of cute and very well designed, even if it’s laughably Brooklyn (e.g., every dad pictured has facial hair and is sporting flannels and/or Steven Alan sweaters)’. Hmm, ukeleles, warm portraits lit by natural daylight, whimsical homes… yep, very hipster indeed — and gorgeous too.
