This is one of my all time favorite magazines. I'm not a fan of fluff and like to read for substance. Harper's is an enjoyable mix of long form journalism, opinion pieces, fiction, etc. there's not many photos and what photos there are often tend to be artwork. I'm sure it's not the magazine for everyone but if you want something of substance and enjoy good articles and fiction with more depth than the typical magazine, give it a go. It reminds me somewhat of New Yorker but with none of the local NYC stuff or movie reviews. So there's generally even more to read in an issue. If you like mags like New Yorker, the Atlantic, Time, or reading lit journals, give this one a go.
