A peculiar pleasure

There’s a peculiar pleasure in writing something and seeing it published, or inventing an idea and commissioning it, or nailing some thunderous cover story, or packing an issue off to be printed and savouring that delicious moment when only you, the people who put it together, know precisely what’s poised to appear.

And there’s a peculiar pleasure in buying a publication whose contents are a complete surprise and finding yourself lost in it for hours, navigating your route through it in your own time and place.

I’m on the inside *and* outside of magazines and both are an extreme delight.
