Being tactile by nature is something that rocks our boat – so no wonder then that our love of fonts, print and paper stock is part and parcel of what defines The Aficionados.
The Aficionados in print is a series of directory magazines about the culture of travel with style edits about hotels, private houses and creative lifestyle. In the digital age, it is comforting to flick through well-written pages and when on travels we always have a stack with us, which usually includes a pit stop at the Monocle kiosks in London or Soda in Munich. Never out of power, these paper staples are wonderfully silent whether they be a travel and style resource like ours, or an excellent read brimming with juicy wording and luminous with photography from one of our friends.
The Aficionados has been happily published for almost ten years, and we support family-owned printers in Austria, paper suppliers from Sweden and distribute our wares to fellow hotels, our partners and those places whereby we feel at home. Our Travel inspired magazines showcase our encounters with interesting places to stay and incorporate our second love of all things crafted. Sensory editions like Farmhouse FABULOUS, Casa GORGEOUS and Blueprint Beauts celebrate the diversity of concepts, dreamers and those people who made us smile.
To fellow papyrophiliacs (those who love paper) keep up the obsession.
Edition three in our style series of travel magazines is titled: Blueprint Beauts. Bound in a soft cover with 130 pages, this new edition is your design compilation, a celebration of those hoteliers that are not afraid to explore the past and reinvent for the future. Who bravely distil design dialogues into a reconsidered style, spliced with modernity, engineered by nature and created with love.
Casa GORGEOUS is our second style publication and as the title suggests, this travel edition is a wunderkammer of small beautiful guesthouses from the townhouse villa to the coastal mansions, from modern interpretations to the classic genre of the casa.
Our first in a series of Style Editions: Farmhouse FABULOUS is our new reconfigured magazine by The Aficionados of the modern country-house depicted through stunning photography and descriptive text.
