Diner Journal

22 January 2011

Diner Journal is a quarterly publication of esoteric recipes, food writing, illustration and culture loosely based around a theme. There’s a chicken issue, a Vermont issue (with beautiful cheese cloth pattern endpapers), etc. This magazine is proof that we can still find substance and value in print today. The whole thing feels like a tightrope walk between careful, considered design and a haphazard lovingly sloppy zine aesthetic. The paper stock varies, but is always nice. The illustrations are beautiful. Best of all, it’s three hole punched so you can put it in some nerdy binder. You would.

Issue 11, art directed by Derick Holt

The magazine is affiliated with the Brooklyn restaurant/butcher/shop Marlow & Sons. A lot of the issues (as well as the Marlow & Sons identity) was created by Derick Holt. The latest issue, a rambling collection of “How-to” articles and illustrations, was art directed by August Hefner (who is ALSO great, btw). Buy em up and hold on to them!
