Sorry, I forgot to add her name, please mods.
I Love It!
HM The Queen by ? (lol)
I actually like this cover despite not being a fan of the royal family. Good way to celebrate their 300th anniversary given the royalist tendencies of the mag.
I really like the cover and the idea behind it. I think after all of these years, this might be the first issue if Tatler that I pick up.
^I'm thinking about the same thing. It looks nice.
Wow. 300 years.
I like it, different
Got this today, it's actually a fold out cover. It folds out to reveal two other versions of the same pose of the Queen. One's a gold foil outline on a black background, and the other's sort of punky. She's bright pink, on a bright green background.
Pretty big issue too. 380 pages.
^ Thanks tarsha; that was an interesting read. honeycombchild, what is the content like? Just the usual dross or do they have some anniversary features to mark the occasion?
There's a 2009/1709 shoot that has shots inspired by both dates, and then there's the 2009 "Portfolio" of group shots featuring the usual society darlings Tatler loves.
Other than that, I have to say it's the usual sort of Tatler inside. There's the ocassional nice bits about their history, but I wouldn't expect too much from it personally.. I haven't had a full read yet, just gone through the magazine, maybe it'll improve once I start to read some of the features.
I'm so tempted to buy this because it looks much better in print, and it's nice and thick.
^ I really wouldn't.
It's not a good issue. At all.
Most of the stuff in it to celebrate the 300 years belongs in a book really. It's just not well done to me. It's long, and drawn out, for no apparent reason - and the fashion content is seriously lacking.
^ Yeah get Bazaar instead.
I'm waiting for the Daily Mail to print its "get this issue for £1" token, a promotion they've been running for Conde Nast mags over the past while.
fab uk cover.
