Have you seen Selvedge? There isn’t another magazine being published today that sweeps me away to a wonderland of fabric and fantasy quite the way Selvedge does. The genius editors bring together new and classic imagery to expound on an evocative theme with each new issue, and I’m surprised some sort of passport isn’t required to read it, because it really is like stepping into another world.
The admiration seems to be mutual, as the July issue—with the theme of “Folklore”—features Castle in the Air! I spoke with Selvedge about our collection of Pellerin paper toys, models, and theatres, and we’ve even dreamed up a special gift for new subscribers to the magazine.
For a limited time, when you subscribe to Selvedge you’ll receive a set of four miniature French pantins, the jumping jacks that come to life with the pull of a string. This pack of Commedia dell’Arte characters comes complete with instructions and waxed linen thread. All you have to do is cut them out and tie them together, and away you go on a one-way ticket to Carnival.
You can read Castle in the Air’s article here. If you’re ready to subscribe and get your jumping jacks, just click over to Selvedge. Happy travels!
