Manolo says, the Manolo he is the inveterate reader of the magazines. Indeed he subscribes to several different magazines, and he has, in the past, given the magazine subscriptions to his friends as the much appreciated holiday gifts. Here are four of the magazines that the Manolo himself subscribes to, and so would be most suitable for the gift giving.
The New Yorker
The Manolo could not live without his weekly New Yorker Yes, it is frequently smug and irritatingly full of the self-regard, but it is still the best magazine in the world, and is the exellent gift for your provincial friends.
The Manolo he takes several of the fashion magazines, such as the Wear of the Womens Daily, but it is The Vogue that the Manolo considers indispensible. If you like the fashion you must read this magazine, if for no other reason than just the ads, they are always something the Manolo examines closely. And, when you are done with it, it makes the attractive doorstop.
The Vanity Fair is another of the big glossies that the Manolo takes monthly. It too is filled with the full page ads, but unlike the Vogue, the articles and the columns (especially that the Dominic Donne) are actually worth the reading.
As with the fashion magazines, the Manolo takes several of the cooking and culinary magazines, however, none are as consistently amusing and entertaining as the Gastronomica. If you give this to the foodie of your acquaintence you will have made the friend for life.
