What We’re Reading

Our editors are a diverse lot, and are constantly reading from a long and diverse list of publications and sites. In What We’re Reading we share the wealth.

Another week has come to an end, and we have just closed Papercity‘s largest issue yet – 128 beautiful and intelligent pages for September. It’s your perfect guide and companion to the fall season.

Of course, the web never sleeps, and neither, it seems, does Marc Jacobs. We’ve been enjoying this New York Times T Magazine piece on him and his empire, a brand over which he has total control.

Ever heard of Essex Flowers? If not, you’ll want to read this Interview profile of one of the gallery’s founding members, Jeffrey Tranchell. You might even want to purchase some of his work.

Temple Grandin is one of the most interesting people around, at least in my opinion, and more people need to know about her and her work. Here’s a brief look in Modern Farmer at what she wants you to know now.

Finally, one of my favorite restaurateurs is Drew Nieporent. His Montrachet was one of the first places I entered upon moving to New York, and he has gone from success to success. Bâtard is on my destination list for my next trip to the city, and here’s a great article from Bloomberg on Nieporent’s formula for success.
