Artful Blogging Cover abspread2lo.jpg

Artful Blogging from Somerset Studio is a charming example of old media getting all up in new media’s bidness.  The new quarterly looks at the world of “artistic blogs” which, if you know anything about Somerset (sic?) is not the world of high art. You won’t find Lee Bontecou here—but AB is full of interesting crafts and cyber-scrapbooking, which is the company’s focus across its line of publications.

The design is either a train-wreck—a cacophony of random layouts, colors, column widths and images—or a cunning tribute to the vernacular designs one finds on the web—you be the judge. Nevertheless, AB is well worth paging through at the Border’s coffee bar, though at 14.95 per issue, I won’t be buying many more.

The artist featured on the spread above is Lisa Hoffman.
