LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
READERS RESPOND TO THE
SUMMER/FALL 2016 ISSUE
I just finished reading my new favorite magazine: Marin At Home [now called SPACES].
I wish it came every month. Congratulations.

Hurray for the barn house (“The Barn &
Beyond”) — love the Swiss Army Knife metaphor. This innovative design that enhances its
special setting is compellingly photographed
and deftly described. Bravo Ross, Joe and Zahid.

I loved getting a look at Marin At Home; I want
the A-frame house on the beach (“A-Game in
Muir Beach”) — can that be arranged? A few
thoughts: Marin might seem too limited a
territory for a whole magazine, month after
month, but Marin’s landscapes are so varied,
with so many micro-ecosystems for houses to
respond to and fit into, that for me, at least, that
becomes sort of the subtext of the magazine.
One suggestion, if you don’t mind, which has
to do with a pet peeve of mine — if at all feasible, don’t stuff pages and pages of advertising
between the cover and contents page. When
you open a magazine, the first thing you want
to see is the table of contents, not a lot of ads. I
know almost every magazine does this now;
some of them force you to wade through dozens
of pages of ads before you get to any editorial
content. This is highly frustrating for the reader.
