Friday Reading List: Guest Editor JEFFSTAPLE

Books / Consumer Guide / Contributor

Though he pretends not to be much of a bookworm, jeffstaple (née Ng) makes sure he's read up on the best of periodicals.

A consumate fabricator, including the editor of his storefront's namesake journal Reed Pages, Jeff spends a lot of time at work being a design hero for a growing creative class. That work is matched only by an equal attention to what's going at any given moment around him, in the media that he's helped in many ways build. This week he shares with us how he stays up to speed without losing a step in his schedule, with a list of his favorite magazines.

The New York Times Sunday Magazine: “The CliffsNotes of news.” All of the week's news condensed into one nice publication.

Creative Future: Being on tap with the forefront of creativity and artists in the world.

Offscreen: A new magazine that I discovered. I don't yet know what it's about but I love flipping through the pages of it because it's so beautifully produced.

Huge: A magazine from Japan. Always want to keep on track of what's happening in style, fashion, food and culture with a Japanese perspective on it.

Mass Appeal: For the latest in New York-centric street art and music.

National Geographic: For when I can't travel the world. This magazine lets me do it.

Wired: For tech and how technology influences everyday life.

Monocle: For a global view on the world and also probably the most ingenious advertising model to date currently.
