I'm so in love with Ali's ed. Amazing close-ups! And yeah... It's too expensive. But I guess there are not that many ads in it?

I've seen the mag in person, and answering your question BerlinRocks, I'm afraid that the paper quality is similar to newspaper quality. The mag I saw is also binded quite poorly with the pages a bit loose, and wrapped with the mag folded into half, leaving a huge crease in the middle...that's the main reason why I didn't buy it.

Well it's really expensive because of shipping, and the size as well.

And yes, I can confirm that the quality of the paper is that newspaper-ish quality.

I wasn't expecting the quality to be that bad. I really dislike the size and paper.
Ruins the contents imho. Thanks for the snapshops!

It's in fact a bit expensive for an oversized news print format magazine, and considering the fashion contents is shot by C list photographers, the more I believe is not worth the money they are selling. I don't think the price has to do with shipping because the magazine is not heavy for it's 54 pages, maybe has to do with the low printing quantity, and for being printed by Steidl. In my store none of the available copies sold.

^ oh ... !! ah ... !!

this is printed by Steidl !! that would explain lot about the price !

ok the latest comments really don't encourage me to purchase it !
guess this made a buzz because those guys had a lot of friends in the industry ...
and because they manage to s*** modelizers !

BUT the "Hey Liu ..." story remains one of the TOP 15 story of spring 2009 in my mind !

the pics are amazing but I think that the quality of paper is a turn off

Camilla and Paola are not really C-list photographers, more like B-list
