american craft to relaunch

andrew wagner and d*s reader andrée passed along a press release today that i thought would be of interest. looks like the founders of dwell are relaunching american craft magazine. from the release:
"AMERICAN CRAFT, the 66-year-old international bi-monthly publication, will relaunch in October 2007, the first significant redesign of the magazine in more than 15 years. Former executive editor and founding managing editor of DWELL magazine, Andrew Wagner, recently relocated from San Francisco to New York to steer the magazine’s new direction with former founding DWELL creative director, Jeanette Abbink. The first issue of the all-new AMERICAN CRAFT—the October/November 2007 issue—will feature new typography and photography, and a new editorial voice. It will reflect the current, rapid convergence of craft, architecture, art, design, and fashion, pushing these connections to the forefront of the cultural conversation."
sounds promising...

That is great, great, great news!!!! I am a furniture designer and I had just decided not to renew my American Craft membership and subscription this year because the mag is so dead, and has been for years. Which is ridiculous because there's so much interesting and fresh work going on out there. I've just changed my mind. Thanks for sharing this wonderful update!

This bodes very well for the future of American Craft Magazine, and hopefully the American Craft Council as well. Bravo and can't wait to see!

We were sad to loose Andrew Wagner but excited at the same time for him, and American Craft.
