A Supermodel Says Goodbye, the China Mystery Deepens and Anna Wintour Gets Real

What We’re Reading Now

BY // 02.01.16

Our editors are a diverse lot, and are constantly perusing a long and broad list of publications and sites. Fashion? Art? Architecture? Culinary studies? In What We’re Reading, PaperCity shares the wealth.

Anyone who reads literature has, I imagine, come across Saul Bellow. I consider him and his work impossible to avoid. Here’s a great read about the last known interview with the Nobel Prize winner.

The country of China is in many ways still an enigma. Economic powerhouse (albeit with its horsepower reduced a tad as of late), tightly controlled media, diverse and ancient cuisine, a nation of billions. Look closely at this map, however, and the tale it tells will make things even more interesting.

Condé Nast has a stable of magazines that is the envy of other publishers: Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Vogue … one could go on. Years and years of editorial greatness. But, alas, nothing is perfect, and Anna Wintour knows this.

Cindy Crawford has seen a lot of runways and cameras in her 30-plus-year career, and just recently landed the Balmain spring advertising campaign. Alas, however, she has announced that she is retiring. The end will come on February 20, the day on which the supermodel will turn 50.
