“I was really curious to hear if the successful, creative women that I looked up to had ever struggled in their lives and careers with what to do next,” Roanne Adams, founder of Romance Journal tells us in an interview. The New York-based publication speaks to 10 inspiring women each issue, often about anxieties, fears and insecurities, and the growth and successes that birth out of those experiences.

We’re really excited to have their second issue as our Sampler offer this week. Themed around ‘Resistance’, it features conversations with creative directors, activists, artists, musicians, and more, individuals who shift the pendulum towards progress through their work. Scroll down to see some of their beautiful spreads and learn more about their interviewees. If you like what you see, head over to Sampler to secure a copy for 10% off and free shipping.
