I love reading magazines, newspapers and blogs; both on and offline versions. If truth be told, I love printed material more than its online cousin but I believe that both can coexist together. Both are excellent resources for every stylish man looking for advice on style, food, culture, politics, art, design and technology as well as some random facts ensuring a well rounded gentleman who can keep up with the latest conversation.
Nothing says I’m a cultured, stylish gentleman like a well written and beautifully designed magazine or periodical perched on a coffee table, stacked on a bookshelf or being produced from a man-bag. I love printed material, magazines that stimulate the senses and the mind. It’s the smell of the print, the touch of the paper, the promise of what lies beneath the glossy cover that I enjoy.
Recently as I walked up Oxford Street, my love for printed material was indulged when I stepped inside Beautiful Pages, a printed word boutique that stocks an impressive array of books and magazines. I met the owner, the knowledgeable and friendly Tiana Vasiljev, who is spreading her passion for the printed word to Sydneysiders by stocking only the best in printed material from Australia and around the globe.

The store has almost every publications that a stylish gentleman could need including current and back issues of Monocle, the Smith Journal, Creative Review and Fantastic Man. Vasiljev also stocks a selection of design and creative books, wallpaper travel guides, t-shirts, posters, prints, stationery and art-house DVD’s. If you are looking for some off- line inspiration drop in and talk to Tiana and let creativity and passion jump off the page.
Beautiful Pages is located at 114 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst.
