online inspiration

The rest of the newspaper and magazine industry may be struggling along, but somehow online magazines seem to be taking off in a beautiful and innovative way. Have you seen these three terrific children's magazines? I love the fact that they feel less corporate and more innovative than the big glossies; they're each truly a labor of love, and they ooze creativity:

LMNOP: a quarterly magazine published out of Australia, filled with all sorts of stylish ideas for parents and kids.

Small: includes a wonderful variety of features, my favorite part is the opportunity to see the work of a different illustrator in each new issue.

Papier-Mache: the newest addition to the group, this one is also published out of Australia. I really like the fashion features and the scrolling format.

Have fun!


  1. I am in love with that Papier Mache' magazine. WOW! The links to some of the products were pure eye candy!

  2. These are great tips! Thanks for sharing them.

    A few days ago I saw a post on your blog about Market and thought, Liesl was there?!? How weird we never crossed paths. Next time I'll just have to hunt for your booth.

  3. my 4 yr old daughter and i have been poring over each magazine on the 'puter. she is just learning to read and loved the latest issue of LMNOP with the focus on alphabet.

  4. thanks SO much for these!! they are such gems.
