magazine love

It's clear I am a huge fan of Uppercase Magazine. When it comes in the mail, I actually put it aside until I can spend uninterrupted time relishing every page. Usually this means that I bring it down to the camp, husband goes fishing in the morning, and I sit on the porch with coffee, Uppercase, and a really beautiful view. The quality of the printing, paper, and content is amazing, full of art, inspiration, design, beautiful graphic layout, & new discoveries. The last issue #10 was especially fun. I had submitted to a call for participation for pet portraits, and well... I have many of my old dear dog, Hayden. It was a great surprise when I got to this part in the mag and saw my sweet girl!

There are many calls to be involved. Subscriber profiles, flickr groups, community pages. There are some great photos of Uppercase in action uploaded by readers. One is the Flickr group "iloveuppercase" and a while ago I uploaded a pic of my favorite place to read and it turned up in issue 10! Here it is again, double take, double double... (just couldn't help but take this pic)

I could go on, but this is truly an exceptional periodical. I'll keep submitting and supporting them however I can. Janine, thank you, you have created a masterpiece!
