#WeekendReads: The Queen of Clean | Between the Sheets | Super Bowl 50 Countdown

If Texture had a patron saint, it would probably be Marie Kondo.

The Japanese domestic goddess and best-selling author is profiled in Real Simple for her ability to clear closets, tidy drawers and put paper out to pasture. Kondo’s advice is to only keep things that “spark joy.”

In her honor, we hope our Super Bowl collection sparks conversation during the big game, and a quartet of stories about love and marriage spark a little romance as we approach Valentine’s Day.

Honoring the Year’s Best in Print and Digital Media

ASME 1

The Texture team was honored to sponsor and attend the publishing industry’s biggest night of the year, the 50th annual Ellie Awards. Read about the experience below, and check out our roundup of the winners.

On February 1, magazine editors ditched ‘caucusing’ to gather at the Grand Hyatt in New York City for the 50th Ellie Awards ceremony. Presented by the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME), along with the Columbia Journalism School, the awards recognize print and digital titles, editors, writers, photographers, designers and videographers for their excellence. The evening was hosted by NBC News’ Tamron Hall, who said she learned more from the magazines she kept stacked under her bed while growing up in Luling, Texas than she did at school.

Judges from across the country selected winners in a broad range of categories including “Best Publication for a Single-Topic Issue,” “Best Feature Photography,” and “General Excellence in Service and Lifestyle Content.” Hard-hitting journalism, genius creativity and fun-loving narrative were praised alike. Matter’s piece on a globally renowned Ebola expert who was denied treatment when he contracted the disease (“My Nurses Are Dead, and I Don’t Know If I’m Already Infected” by Joshua Hammer) earned kudos for “Best Reporting,” while Eater’s advice on drinking your way through the most magical place on Earth (“The Eater Guide to Surviving Disney World”) won the “Leisure Interests” crown.

Ellie Awards

There were laughs (Lucky Peach’s editor expressed his gratitude for an organization that honors astounding pieces of journalism with “bronze elephants,”), as well as some tears when David Granger accepted his final Ellie as editor-in-chief of Esquire.

“Magazines are getting larger, not smaller. I hope we’re not delusional,” said Adam Moss, editor-in-chief of New York magazine, which took home bronze elephants for “General Excellence in News, Sports and Entertainment,” “Best Magazine Section” (for The Culture Pages), “Best Multimedia” and “Best Website.”

Some of the only CGI used in Ridley Scott’s space smash? Putting Matt Damon’s body on a skeletal frame as his astronaut starves.
