les mason

Australian designer Les Mason passed away in 2009, but his work lives on in this beautiful limited edition publication designed by Dominic Hofstede. Les Mason: Epicurean Magazine 1966 – 1979 features color reproductions of covers and a selection of internal spreads from the 77 issues of Epicurean Magazine that he served as creative director. Les was an influential figure in the Melbourne design community and many consider this to be his defining work.

You can pick up a copy at The Narrows.

I’m convinced that the current state of print magazines would be much healthier if this much love & attention was devoted to their design

This looks utterly gorgeous – so much so I went straight to the Narrows site and bought it, can’t wait for it to arrive! It’s unbelievable to see how he approached the design of a food magazine, if you look at most food magazines today they are pretty dry, design-wise… But each spread and cover featured here is a work of art. Seeing so much care and attention given to a project like this is really inspiring.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
