When I was showing off the inaugural issue of French magazine Cercle to the rest of the editorial team, everyone commented on how darn good it smelled. But it turned out that these olfactory pleasures were just the start – this annual, thematic publication has set itself a high standard. This first issue is all about the forest but the editorial approach is anything but singular. The opening spread features a beautiful Gustave Doré drawing and interviews range from a forest manager to artists and writers plus there’s a plethora of visual treats too, not least a host of excellent illustration.

Only certain bits are translated but those features are lively and enlightening while there’s a coherency and confidence about the design that shows why Cercle Studio wanted to bring their own publication into the world. 2014’s issue will be themed around science-fiction, and I’m already excited to see (and smell) it.
