On another thread on this Forum Cathie thought some of the comments about Decor were excessively harsh. My question is which of the trades do you think are the best (and why). My personal feeling is that most are pretty sophomoric. I get the feeling that most of the writers are probably on their first job (not counting their High School paper) and most of the articles (especially Decor) are written to fill the void between ads. If you feel these are worthy efforts, and you are welcome to that opinion, how do these rate against other magazines you take. For my money, Art Business News and Art World News are the best (for our trade), PFM gets a slight nod because their technical articles are informative. I also enjoy Jay's articles and Bluestone's column is good. Marc's Counter Intelligence is fun. Decor, in my opinion, is a collection of quotes. I guess it's a chance to get your name in a trade, but I don't learn too much. I don't think the writer always has a good grasp of the article and it reminds me of those 3000 word papers you had to write in school (You know just keep writing til you hit the end). What's your opinion? And I don't mean that you think I'm wrong. Tell us what you think they do well or not so well, and what more would you like to see them provide?
