My one weakness in life, apart from thrifting (and chocolate. And cakes. Biscuits. Coffee. Yarn. Erm….) are magazines. I love all the usuals; Mollie Makes, Crafty, Country Living, Oh Comely, but I also like the lesser-known ones that you can only find online, or in galleries and independent shops – the ones that stop you in your tracks with breathtaking photography, or leave your head reeling with beautifully written articles about things you never realised you were interested in. So when someone asked me on Twitter which ones I’d recommend, I thought it’d be a nice idea to do a mini-series with all of my favourites – kicking things off with the wonderful Cereal magazine.
Cereal is a quarterly travel and lifestyle magazine, based in the wonderful Bristol in the UK (I’m starting to think that all the best things come from Bristol!), and it’s really difficult to sum it up succinctly in a few sentences. The pictures above are taken from volume three, which included features on Santa Barbara, Reykjavic, contemporary letterpress and edible flowers and insects – all things that I’d never thought about much (apart from the letterpress!), but found myself completely absorbed by. The photography is stunning; clean, simple, beautiful – and with incredible detail that makes you keep going back to them, over and over.
