Lodestars Anthology Magazine Issue 1: England Reimagined
Issue 1: Engliand
England ... it is sylvan, unpredictable, sublime, originative and contradictory - a land of eccentricity and ingenuity, a mix of worlds, practices and lifestyles all enriched and enlivened by an enthrallingly complex past. Travel here and discover more than you thought possible - and that defining Englishness is a daunting task indeed. This is a magazine about forests, crags and drystone walls; about culinary daring, crumbling ruins and journeys into the wild. It is an ode to literary histories and a smuggling past, coastal towns and cultural capitals. Recalling long forgotten giants and lingering lore, this is our homage to England and the verve that makes it eternal.
Lodestars Anthology is an independent magazine-meets-journal for curious travellers who long to be inspired, see the world and meet interesting characters along the road. Focusing on one country per issue, Lodestars is a scrapbook of place, a magazine that goes deep into the heart of a location and uncovers its quirks, flavours and splendour, taking a truly personal, beautifully crafted and slow approach to the art of travel journalism.
With stunning photography, thoughtful and beautifully written stories, and original illustrations - produced in Bristol by a small independent press with an eye for detail and a love for print – Lodestars is a thing of beauty in its own right. You’ll probably want to keep it atop a coffee table, or perhaps you’ll want to fill it with scribblings and notes and stow it away in your travel bag for inspiration whilst on the road.
In recent issues we’ve rambled up the Keele River by canoe; gone hawk-walking in the bonnie braes, found paradise on Lord Howe Island, been foraging at Daylesford, hitched a ride with ice-road truckers to Aklavik, and taken a turn around the garden with Antonio Carluccio . . . We’ve been for a dip in a lost lake, practiced the art of Fika in Stockholm, gone cattle-wrangling in the Kimberley, wandered Tuscan hills with saffron farmers, and much more besides.
In 2018 we said bonjour to France and namaste to India, and re-issued an updated version of our original England magazine. Last year we ventured to Portugal and Switzerland … and this year it’s Mexico and Greece, with many more adventures to other intriguing destinations in the pipeline too.
So if you like the idea of receiving a little piece of beautifully produced incitement to wanderlust through your letterbox several times a year, why not give the latest issue a try, dive into one of our back issues, or indulge in a subscription for yourself or a fellow travel-lover for the coming year, and join us on this great adventure?
