Rated 5 out of 5 by Radiocure Classic, Modern, Rare, and in its own league.
J. Crew has raised the bar by offering #59 Magazine. Less a magazine and more a future collectors piece, the bi-annual publication consists of intimate and world class black and white photography complimenting its text of all things culture for the cultured. Issue #10, which J. Crew quickly sold out of, shows a young Bridget Bardot dancing atop a cafe table while men gaze up in wonder. Inside, stunning shots of Bardot build up to the edition's gem: a special portfolio of Helmut Newton works selected by he and his wife, Alice Springs. The options to buy any issue are slim at best (including online). Upon hours of searching, I (barely) managed to procure the Bardot issue from Denmark, the magazine's country of origin. So, do yourself a favor and get it from J. Crew....because a 12"x16" b&w look at Newman or Hemingway, and those to follow, will at the very least add a touch of timeless yet modern class to your life. And they won't last long.
