    I didn’t know that Vanity Fair’s demographic was age 12. They must have a good deal of disposable income these days.

    One of the magazine publishing world’s best kept secrets. Vanity Fair is thoroughly researched, deeply knowledgeable, and well written.

    Unfortunately, it exists in the world of fashion, which is of little interest to the BoingBoing community; and I would say that there is very little *of* interest in the self-obsessed world of the vain and their ornamentation, period.

    But Vanity Fair can and do publish articles outside their traditional focus. When they do so, they get the very best in their respective fields to write, and to write superbly – and in depth.

    Here’s a sample:

    And for fun, some background on AIG:

    I look forward to their article on Assange.

    Also: I don’t read VF – people send me links – and my idea of style is a confident instruction to my tailor that, whatever it is, it should be at least seventy years out of date.

    OMG now I see a very very slight resemblance to Edward Norton. (Not you, Beeb; dream on.)

    re: the subtitle : I don’t know about adorable, but I completely endorse the inescapable part.
