Another amazing collectible magazine - Visionaire

As we continue to draw closer to the October 14 launch of Rotator Magazine (the launch party is at Fulcrum Gallery in Tacoma at 7 p.m.), I've been checking out other cool magazine projects that do the same sort of thing. Up near the top of the heap is Visionaire. It talks about all sorts of stuff I don't give a hoot about, like high fashion and perfume and such (bleah), but boy is it beautiful.

The magazine is sold at a starting price of $295  per issue. But collectors are said to pay up to $5,000 for hard-to-find issues such as No. 18, which came in its own Louis Vuitton portfolio case, which is pretty dang cool.

Rotator will have much more of an industrial aesthetic, and while it will not come in a Louis Vuitton case, it will come with a hand-letterpressed cover. And it's only twenty bucks for the inaugural issue. Cheap!
