Paper Really Likes Book Written by Paper Editor

The Table of Contents of Paper‘s latest issue touts a “new book by Kim Hastreiter” on page 48. Hastreiter is, of course, the magazine’s editor and publisher, but there’s nary a mention of that in the TOC.

But how about in the article itself (on page 46, not 48). Nope, although review does call her book, Geoffrey Beene: An American Fashion Rebel, an “intimately replete record of the designer.”

We always thought only The New York Times gave favorable reviews to its own.

(In the spirit of full disclosure, we used to intern at Paper. It was lovely.)
