Our new cover features a photo by Paul McCredie of a holiday home by Assembly Architects at Waipatiki Beach in Hawke's Bay. In the pic architect Louise Wright, who designed the home with her architect husband Justin Wright, relaxes on the window seat. The home is one of seven beautiful summer getaways in this issue, which is on newsstands now. 

You'll note on this cover that we've initiated a little design tweak, cropping the image in a way that we think makes the masthead really pop and adds a greater degree of clarity to the cover (as well as providing a contrast to the dominance of full-bleed images on the newsstand). We're also using a smart new headline font, Eames Century Modern, inspired by the stencils of Charles & Ray Eames and created by US type firm House Industries.

We're really pleased with how this issue has turned out. We hope it provides you with hours of happy summer reading.
