Has anyone sourced magazines from asia? I’m thinking Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan.
I only ask because I think you would be pleasantly surprised. They have some of the better prints of Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire and InStyle I’d say.
The paper stock is much better. Some of the celebrity covers are unique (maybe they use the unpopular photo taken by the photographer) and Harper’s Bazaar is the largest format I have come across (like VOGUE Nippon). They are a beaut!
Comparison of Harper’s Bazaar US attached (and no its not a travel size).
Honestly, I think all the US editions are nasty quality in comparison to anywhere else.
Also hello, I decided today to sign up, I only found this a couple of months ago but its been 17/18 years since I knew I was hooked to magazines. Perhaps I’ll post my story sometime.
