and another one bites the dust



i-D is folding! i know, i know. why the shock over a small, art-house mag when bigger ones with better backing have left us? because one of these days we’re going to wake up and the feeling of a holding a meaty and inspiring magazine with thick, matte paper and obscure photographers and stylists will be just a memory. our fingers, bent and broken from surfin’ the ‘net will ache for the touch of the piles of beautiful indie books (as pretentious as that word is when describing a magazine) of yore. RIP, i-D. fifty-five years is pretty admirable lifespan for your species, non?
