Mommy, What’s A Hipster Magazine?

0331hipster.jpgThe New York Post‘s weekly magazine summary just gave pride of place to mags for “hopeless hipsters.”

Who qualifies as a hipster magazine in the New York Post‘s book?

  • Paper: “The magazine boasts some of the best production values of the hip set.”

  • BlackBook: “The photos of [Janet] Jackson trussed up in latex and headgear are supposed to be provocative, but the S&M spread comes across as silly playacting, and the interview with the pop star falls flat.”

  • Interview: “With the departure of longtime editor Ingrid Sischy, we have to wonder whether Interview is due for a makeover. The magazine — created by Andy Warhol in 1969 — seems stuck in another era.”

  • Zink: “There’s no nice way to say this: Zink has embarrassingly bad design and poor production values. [...] A quick read tells us that a bunch of first-time freelancers are working for peanuts.”
