Coming up peaches

This morning my feed from the New Yorker's Book Bench blog popped up an article about the new Paris Review website.

Frankly, it's the Paris Review takes a less lighthearted approach to reading than I usually follow. But the site is really very attractive

The New Yorker describes it, rather endearingly, as having a 'clean, Frenchy feeling' and notes the use of a lithograph of Paris in the footer which draws a connection back to early print editions). Apparently the site will change out it's key colour with very season and edition of the journal, which I think is a lovely touch.

There was something soothingly familiar about the site, and casting about I realised it reminded me of another of my favourites: Thinking for a Living. Peach has never looked so good.
