Interested in knowing how many (if any) of /cgl/ collects jfash magazines (including mooks/seasonal lookbooks), or magazine appendixes.

Some discussion questions

> Do you collect jfash magazines?
> Which ones do you like/follow? How do you follow them (buying, social media, etc.)
> What do you look for in magazines? Style, makeup, hair, interviews, etc?
> Do you prefer periodic magazines or brand look books?
> Do you care if magazines come with an appendix/freebie item? Are you willing to pay more for them, or buy the item separately?
> Does it bother you if people sell the magazine and freebie items separately?
> With the closure of many big old jfash magazines and then relaunching on the internet, how do you think the magazine industry will move in the future?
> What would your dream magazine feature?
I have some GLB, some Kera, a few Ageha and Larme and I've bought 4 mooks with lolita brand items. I think a couple of the Ageha or Kera had little bonus items too. One Lolita Bible had a hardcover IW date book that I really liked.
I miss GLB, and I really liked lolita designer interviews and lolita street snaps. Also the travel features with snaps, and the occasional on-location photo shoots.
fat reminder that the first 50 issues of fruits are available for free viewing and download in high quality at archive.org
I know somebody who has 60 issues of Kera. I’d like to flick through them all one day.
God fruits makes me so sad now, I really wish the good old magazines would stop closing

Same, I feel like lolita culture is just typical instagram normie culture now- dressing for internet points. I miss the blogs and interviews and magazines of the past. I wish the old GLB comic strips were also translated
