Spy Magazine, Grayden Carter and Kurt Andersen’s satirical publication that in many ways not only changed the tone of magazine journalism with the skewering of celebrities, but should also be considered the historical antecedent to all writing on the web, is now available for your reading pleasure on Google Books.The magazine ran from 1986 until 1998.
Even if you weren’t old enough to read Spy Magazine in the 80’s (I certainly wasn’t), it’s worth doing so now. Right now. It’s a brilliant thing, much like Suck.com was in the late 90’s. [via flavorwire]
