roundupmay08.jpgANP Quarterly #10 has Sarah from Colette on the cover. When I went to Paris, Colette was on my short list of things I must see as soon as possible. In Brendan Fowler's introduction to his interview with Sarah, he explains Colette as "a museum of moments—all moments, past present and future—and a superb celebration and instigation of the NOW." It's illuminating to read a behind the scenes account of how Colette is curated and how some of their collaborations came about. This new solid issue of ANP continues with Black Panther Minister of Culture Emory Douglas' amazing posters, photographer Jim Goldberg, the great and muscley world of Tom of Finland, a profile on magazine we love Hamburger Eyes, and more.

This month i-D gives us something they haven't done before: an entire issue dedicated to one person. I for one am so glad it's not an actor—bo-ring! It's model Agyness Deyn billed as the new face of Britain. Full disclosure time, I worked on Billy Sullivan's cover shoot and spent a couple days hanging out with Agyness and Josh and Billy and company. She was warm, energetic, hilarious and a dream to photograph. Our cover shot is pictured to the left here though it's only available in Japan (sorry mom!). The other 6 covers were shot by Terry Richardson, Matt Jones, Nick Knight, and Alasdair McLellan. The issue is bright and fun and includes an interview with her mum. The best of the non-Agy bits is an exclusive look at Harmony Korine's movie Mister Lonely with photographs by Ari Marcopoulis.

Girls Like Us has a new issue out with a fierce jock on the cover. The photography in this issue is particularly good, I must say. The mag is also thicker this time and stapled. They're starting a Fresh Faces series and this issue features New Yorkers photographed by Sophie Mörner. Plenty of PF favorites are included but we're still waiting for our close-up (hint hint). Also in this issue are trans-dudes, cabbie and writer Melissa Plaut, sports, hair, filmmakers Maria Beatty and Pauline Boudry, and more.
