anorak magazine

I discovered Julia Rothman's blog today. I think I'm infatuated with illustrators. From Etsy to all kinds of children's books, I can't get enough of them (the good ones, that is). Julia is a wonderful illustrator. And her blog is filled with great finds. She recently featured a children's magazine called Anorak - The Happy Mag for Kids. It is out of the UK and incredibly fun and quirky ... a crazy mix of coloring book (it comes with colored pencils), learning tools (great collage art) and just plain weirdness. I also love the name. I had my fair share of J. Crew and LL Bean anoraks as a kid. The bigger the better.

Remember Highlights and World and Ranger Rick? They weren't nearly as cool as this:
