More Nest Magazine.

I’m still missing Nest Magazine. For much more information, see the previous post. I certainly understand from first-hand experience that these design projects are labours of love and very hard to sustain over time. Goodbye Nest.

    Where can I get back copies? Found an archive site but when you try to move into it you get to some online shopping deal… Really want to get as many back copies as I can. If you can help I’d be grateful. I live in Melbourne Australia. Thanks, Kate

    Hi Kate,
    I know, that site has an annoying redirect – Sorry! I tried to warn about that in our previous post. I believe that the only place you can get back copies now, sadly, is eBay. (And Craigslist – do they have that in Australia? Or is it just a Canada/US thing?) I just did an eBay search and there are quite a few issues there. I was surprised! Of course, they’re about US$30-35 each, but that seems like quite a good price considering the magazines were originally quite expensive and are now collector’s items. I don’t see some of the rarer copies there, which go for as much as $200 (Issue no. 1).
    Good luck and if you buy any, can you let us know how it goes?

    hi…you can check with there is one dealer who has 9 for sale. the prices seem reasonable to me. i have some issues as well that i might be willing to sell, including the first issue (farrah issue). i honestly do not know what it is worth. i am not a professional dealer or anything like that. i do not want to be cheated, of course, but i am not the type to gouge others.
    i am a bibliophile who takes excellent care of anything made from paper!
    if you are looking for something less costly but worthwhile, buy the book they did called “every picture tells a story.” it is also on i think it is around 20.00

    Nest was the greatest piece of printed art on the market. It was a magnificent spectacle of photography, composition, graphic arts and physical production. I cannot imagine their print cost or the perfectionist who stayed in the printing plant while the magazine ran ensuring that each copy was up to standard.

    Even at its exorbitant cost, I knew it wouldn’t survive. Hardly any advertiser support. I subscribed after I saw a single issue.

    The journalism was fun but not extraordinary. Wildly eclectic, flagrantly gay, and never paying blind homage to wealth or celebrity (unless they had something as wonderful and original as the magazine itself was), it was the antithesis of the mainstream shelter magazine.

    I hope the principals are doing well in whatever they chose to follow. They should always know they did something outstanding.

    Hi all,

    I just listed issues 2, 6, 7 and 9 on ebay. I love this magazine and have every issue. They folded before my subscription ran out so they sent me a stack of back issues. I have a few more to list in the near future.

  21. Michelle Says:

    I have a lot of back issues of NEST. I’ve listed some on amazon, and happy to sell some to any other fans. NEST was such a fantastic magazine, and I’ve hung onto mine, all in decent condition, for so many years. I’ve gotta downsize my studio! Mail at michelleweinberg dot com
