Papier Mache Magazine – A Beautiful Childhood

June 12, 2010 § 2 Comments

I’ve been looking at: Papier Mache Magazine which can be read online for free here.  Produced quarterly in Sydney, Australia this e-magazine features children’s fashion, DIY crafts, and home decorating ideas.

I have to say: this magazine is a work of art.  Every page is a portal into the beautiful soft moments of childhood with hand made toys, games, and imagination.  Admittedly, it’s also very romantic view without game boys, barbies, or Dora the Explorer – but for me the imagery reminds me of  the spark of what later grew into a life long passion for art.

I really love the intersection between domestic life, imagination, and nature presented in the gorgeously staged photography.  Despite the staging, however, I think the lovely children pictured would honestly wear the clothes and probably love being involved in the creation of the photo spreads.

This magazine (and back issues)  are  also wonderfully available free of charge to all, which I highly applaud.
