What section in your favourite magazine do you flip to read first?
I like the ‘bite sized’ stories at the front to whet my appetite, or the humour section at the back. I find magazines are a bit like a bento box in that you can sample different parts before settling into the main meal.
What magazine would you bring back from the dead?
It would have to be ‘The Face’ magazine. I have an almost complete collection from issue 12 on. The combination of music, fashion, art, design, technology and pop culture made it a cover to cover read for me. It heralded the new wave of Cool Britannia and made the reputations of some creative luminaries like Neville Brody and Juergen Teller.
If money was no object what would be your ultimate cover star, animal or object?
Stewy from Family Guy.
