The most distinctive independent magazines are renowned for their unhindered editorial imagination, asking readers to to trust their lead and take a deep dive into their world. If you emerge ‘getting’ it, you feel like a member of a secret club.
Founded by artist Claire Milbrath, Editorial Magazine sits snugly in this category alongside other esoteric titles like Marfa Journal and Mushpit. From an emerging clan of ‘sci-fi artists’, to the bedroom of a folk-freak musician and a fashion story inspired by the Italian porn star Cicciolina, it’ll have you grinning to yourself as you read and re-read every last page.
(Note: There are two covers available for this issue, and one will be selected at random to be sent to you)
