What is “Harper’s BAZAAR”?

Do you know a magazine, named “Harper’s BAZAAR”?
It is a magazine published in NY, in 1887, the year that Ryoma Sakamoto was assassinated in Japan. It’s the first women magazine in the world.

Free subscription for a year

Just a year ago, I attended a seminar for women only which was supported by Harper’s BAZAAR.
There was a typhoon on that day. I wouldn’t lose anything even if I didn’t go because it was free anyway. But I eventually went to the event.
The host of the event praised the attendances because in spit of the typhoon, many went to the event. Surprisingly, Harper’s BAZAAR promised all of us for a free subscription for a year. Therefore, I’ve got “Harper’s BAZAAR” for a year!

Key word is “fabulous”

This magazine’s theme is “fabulous”. Fabulous means marvelous, incredible and characteristic. In fact, it uses cover girls like actress, Anne Hathaway, model Miranda Kerr and singer Katy Perry.
There were many beautiful visuals about fashion, beauty, travel, living, art in the magazine. All the pages look like they are from a different dimension art of another world.

Who is this woman? She must be famous.
As this magazine is from the U.S.A., there are many people, places, information which I don’t know. It is fun for me to know about them. Moreover, I got inspired from those pop pictures.

Printed paper vs. e-publication

Unfortunately, I got my last “Harper’s BAZAAR” last month. I’m very sad.
Recently, people stop buying magazines. Likewise, I stop buying too. But I recognized that large, colorful printed images on page give me a different stimulus compared to e-publication.
Maybe I would buy a magazine sometime.

この雑誌、見かけたことないなぁ。
うちの駅は、本屋さんがないところだから、余計に見かけないんだけどね。
コンビニに並んでる雑誌しか見たこと無いの。
というか、私に、雑誌を見る習慣がないので、余計に目に入っていないのです。
 本は、やっぱり紙で読みたい派です。
本の温かみも好きだし、馴染みがあるし。。。
といいつつ、余り本自体買わないんだけどね。
私みたいな人がいるから、本屋さんがなくなっちゃうんだよねー。

私は近くの本屋さんがなくなるのが嫌だから、なるべく本屋さんで買うようにしています。
yokoさんは図書館派?それにしても東京のあの駅に本屋さんがないのか…ありそうな街なのに。
コンビニにもしあの雑誌があったとしたら、腕が痺れてブルブルしちゃうよ。重いから。

「ハーパーズ バザー」には1年間お世話になったなぁ〜。郵便ポストに入っていると嬉しかった。
ハースト婦人画報社さん、ありがとうございました。
