Toilets and magazines have a natural affinity for one another. So it’s probably not surprising that a small but plucky band of independent publishers are creating print magazines inspired by toilets. From festival portaloos, to hand dryers, to famous books reworked to include toilet humour (see: A Room With A Loo), these magazines will take your toilet reading to the next level.

The South London Review of Hand Dryers is simultaneously a fond parody of the London Review of Books, a silly excuse for writing about hand dryers, and a heartfelt experiment in creativity and collaboration.
RRP $20 | 112 pages | Published in New York
Imported from the US, Facility‘s rigorous study of toilets — toiletry, we might call it — explores the rich and multifarious sights, smells, textures, feelings, ideas, and routines behind the loo.
RRP £14.00 | 98 pages | Published in London
Goat’s second issue is dedicated to toilets. Called ‘A Room With A Loo’, it begins with a list of famous titles, reimagined to revolve around loos. The magazine is ostensibly an arts and culture publication, but retooled to intrigue readers with its bathroom obsession.
