Downtown Dallas boutique TenOverSix fills a cavity we did not know was empty: a need for international printed titles.

The Tim Headington shop has installed a newsstand, available in-store and online, filled with more than 50 independent magazines for sale, in categories of architecture, art, fashion, beauty, culture, design, entertaining, fashion, food, feminism, music, and travel.

Selections range from i-D to the Paris edition of Vogue to Paris Review.

According to a release, each title is hard to find and is hand-selected by TenOverSix president and creative officer Kristen Cole.

Cole hatched the idea while on a buying trip to Paris, which as we all know is where the best ideas always happen.

"I'm always lugging these publications home," she says in the release. "Why? I should be stocking great titles!"

Having these titles on hand would not only make Cole's trips to Paris less cumbersome, they would put Dallas in a league of other big cities, which is something Dallas always aspires to.

"When I lived in New York and Los Angeles these magazines were largely easy to access at good newsstands," she says. "Since moving to Austin, it's been a challenge to find the ones I love. I realized there was a similar hole in Dallas for curated content and wanted to fill that—pronto."

Pronto is how you do things in the Headington world.

TenOverSix is part of the Headington Companies' retail portfolio along with Forty Five Ten. It's the place to go if you are a lover of beautiful and original things including fashion, accessories, art, home design, beauty, music, books, films — and now international publications.

Cole makes a bold proclamation that goes against everything we've been told in recent years about media.

"Print is not dead!" she says. "There are people who’ll always appreciate the tactile quality and community aspect print brings to culture. The pendulum always swings back."

This is food for thought for CultureMap, which is an online digital publication only. Some might say the best online digital publication in all of Dallas and even Texas. Is it time to think print? Time will tell.

Meanwhile, the Joule's blog @1530Main is holding a contest where you can win a full year of magazines. All you need to do is follow them on Instagram.
