Frankie is a magazine I’ve seen occasionally while reading blogs or scrolling through Instagram feeds. I’ve flipped through some issues before but never commited to buying a copy for myself. That changed a few weeks ago. I was sold on this issue because of the bonus souvenir postcards that I thought of hanging up as artwork. It also came with a wall planner, which doesn’t hurt.
The magazine itself was a nice and interesting read. I enjoyed a lot of the articles and the ‘Frankie Bits’ at the beginning. I do like how it’s different from the other mainstream magazines on offer. If I’m honest though, I don’t really understand the hype around Frankie. I liked it and I’ll consider buying it again, but I guess I feel let down because everyone raved about how good it was and that level of amazing-ness didn’t translate. Perhaps I missed something.
What do you think? Have you read Frankie before? Do you think it’s a bit meh, or one of the best magazines out there?
