traveling pages: paradiso magazine

July 21st, 2013 by nina · france, print, review

this time it’s not about a book but about a magazine. lately i was at the huge magazine-store at the central railway station in frankfurt. i always go there when i am hungry. hungry for words, good paper, the smell of ink and new stories. hungry for adventures, recipes and holidays of my life. so i go there quite often. and let me tell you this: it is really hard to find a good travel magazine. one which is not only for a special area like australia or the german island sylt. but at my last visit i spottet a magazine called paradiso. mainly i took it with me because of its handy size and the way the paper feels to the touch. my magazine was the second issue and all about france. i liked it so much that i came back to buy a second one for my sister but it was already sold out. so i bought it online, along with the first issue about italy. what should i say? i love this magazine. i love the fact that it is small (din a5 – it fits in every bag) and that the paper feels so good. i love the pictures and the stories. stories about favorite places. about holiday-houses at the côte d’azur and vineyards. about tending sheep and crément. with a lot of good tips in different cities, recipes for a gallic four-course meal and interviews with alfred grosser and charlotte ginsberg.
i read paradiso from the first page to the last and i can really recommend it! so go and get it.

may started pretty productive and intense, and thats the same way, how may is going to end.
here are the latest news:

1. contributors:
many contracts came back and i like to welcome: abi glassmann, lee hinkelmann, jack ‘darcy’ searle, emilia lloret, jochen berger, svetlana padolfino. i hope, i didn’t forget one!

for our contributors, we set up accounts to log in and actually get to be part of the retomag network/ write on the blog, share ideas, write some travel hints. exciting times, i cant wait to read their first posts.

2. publishing:
i had the first meeting with the first print shop. it went pretty well and i am curious about their offer. but i am waiting for a second print shop to get an offer. then it will get time to decide who gets the job and when retomag and retomag-israel will get printed. very exciting. i am looking forward to that day i was working for since almost one year!

3. sponsoring:
still working on the introduction movie to find sponsors. if you know someone, who knows someone, who knows someone, who could be interested in sponsoring retomag and getting some space for advertising their business in exchange, please give me an email!
