1. Lunch Lady
A modern parenting magazine from Melbourne that’s as colourful as it is thoughtful. This neatly sized publication is full of recipes, stories, art and cooking ideas for kids, as well as some comic relief on the ups and downs of parenting. The beautifully crafted print quality and binding makes it a stylish and collectable addition to your kitchen bookshelf.
2. Like the Wind
An independent publication founded by runners Simon and Julie Freeman that tells inspiring running stories from all over the world. Printed on sustainable paper, this photo and illustrated led magazine regularly donates its profits to running charities. For issue 13, don’t miss the enticing article on the off-road, up-hill activity of fell running.
This bi-annual doorstop fashion bible began in 2000 co-founded by Ashley Heath and Katie Grand. Today, it remains to be a playful and high-end title – the Spring/Summer 2018 issue comes in two covers by British photographer Charlotte Wales, who gives us glossy high-glamour in the form of supermodel icon Cindy Crawford – we simply couldn’t resist the Lamborghini version.
4. Little White Lies
A perfect antidote to an endless scroll through Netflix, this international movie magazine created in London is available bi-monthly. It’s goal is to champion great movies and the people that make them – going far beyond the Hollywood blockbuster. The film reviews have a unique ranking system that explores different aspects of the movie-goers experience from anticipation to retrospect.
5. Delayed Gratification
A response to the rapid pace of daily news, Delayed Gratification looks back over the past 3 months to review news stories in-depth, using hindsight and detailed analysis for a different perspective on current affairs. Co-founder Marcus Webb explains he wants to help people comprehend stories for a “slower, smarter approach”.
