In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Martha Stewart Living Magazine, MSLO has released an iPad special issue. I have been an avid reader of the magazine since its inception and I have been following Martha’s domestic advice since she wrapped a turkey in pastry on an early PBS special. I know that my early editions of the magazine are priceless but I will never let them go. Unfortunately, I have decreased my consumption of magazines in the past few years, even slacking on Marie-Claire Idée (France), the greatest magazine ever made.

So it is with trepidation that I downloaded the eco-friendly iPad issue.

Generally, I am annoyed with magazines trying to be cool by inserting a bunch of options in their incredibly data-heavy publications, I prefer simple PDFs… But I love the animated cover and the across and down navigation of Living.

Now if I was head of interactive products at MSLO (my dream job since 1998), I would immediately devise clever ways to remix the massive amount of company media… My fist task: The Ultimate Collection of Good Things! with videos and pictures, all easily searchable! But knowing Martha and her awesome crew of collaborators, it’s probably already in the works.

Please Martha, do make more!
