DIG BMX – TRAILS ISSUE

I can’t remember the last time I was so excited to write about a magazine, as I am about the new Trails Issue from Dig. Granted, I’m a trail rider at heart, but this issue is a great piece of work and worthy of long term bookshelf space.

The Trails Issue has everything from great riding photos, photos of signs and all the little details that encompass a trail spot, to interviews with different scenes from all over the world and their riders (despite if they are well known or not). There is a lot to read and look at in this bad boy. The pic above is Justin Inman in a crazy berm, shot by Hadrien Picard.

One of my favorite spreads is the one with Jay Lonergan where he re-creates a pic from 13 years prior, at the same spot, and with the same flannel.

I think Dig captured a good overall sense of history and future of trails with this issue, and most importantly, a certain feeling. Pick up the issue for sure if it is up your alley.

Monocle Dialogues

I just picked up the new issue of Monocle and came across a few pages in the magazine that were dedicated to their new online features that I guess are just like radio shows/pod casts. I just made it to the site to check them out a few minutes ago and haven’t had the chance to listen to them, but I’m definitely excited to check them out. The have topics for each of their sections that are covered in their magazine as well as a feature called the “Monocle Weekly” covering news and cultural current events.
