Have you heard of Trouvé? It’s a gorgeous new independent magazine from the US, and it’s — in a word — wonderful. Think Kinfolk with an arty edge; Cereal from a creative’s perspective. Trouvé literally means “to find” in French.
From the moment it arrived, Trouvé made a big impact with the packaging alone. It’s like opening a present; perfectly wrapped in white paper and stamped with a wax seal, a gorgeous typographic print and handwritten note included. The pages are filled with inspiring quotes, stories and interviews with creative people, and are beautifully designed to boot. I received Trouvé and did something I’d never done before: I sat down on a wintery Saturday morning and read the entire thing cover-to-cover (while getting my hair done and sipping a mocha. It was a good day).
It was a absolute delight experiencing Trouvé, and I can’t wait to get the second issue! Huge props to Amanda Marko and all the talented people who contributed to issue #1.
