2019 is whizzing by at breakneck speed, how is it March already?! Good news is that as Spring draws near, that means the brand new issue of 91 will be arriving soon too! We are thrilled that lots of you have already subscribed, meaning your order for this new issue is already in. If you haven’t done so yet, you can either SUBSCRIBE HERE to get the two 2019 issues, or you can PRE-ORDER the next edition individually. Both of these options mean it will get to you as soon as possible after we receive it from the printers, which, if you are UK-based, should be by the 15th April. (slightly later for international orders)
The other exciting news is that we are widening our distribution internationally. I don’t have a full list of stockists just yet, but it will be available in certain Barnes & Noble stores in the USA, as well as stores in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Portugal, Singapore and Spain. I will post the details of where and when as soon as I can.
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you a little sneak peek! Some of you might have noticed that we have been making some changes to the design. We have a lovely new look cover, and while things inside are still very much in keeping with our style, we have also introduced a few new features. The eagle-eyed amongst you will have spotted we are no longer calling the issues SS or AW, but instead this is Volume 7. The reason for this is that we have always aimed to make the content non-seasonal so that it remains evergreen and can be read and enjoyed at any time, even if you are purchasing back issues. With this in mind, it seems more logical to catalogue them as volumes rather than by season.
And now, on to revealing some lovely images from the issue! First up, the cover….
This issue is inspired by the word ‘Playful’. This idea has been referenced and represented in various ways throughout the pages, from family homes that have brought elements of childhood into their interior in a stylish way, through to designers and shop owners who use colour and pattern in exciting and fun ways, through to looking at how to introduce play into your working life. No matter your age or personal and professional situation, play is an important part of life and promotes feelings of happiness and contentment. We hope this issue encourages you to be more playful too, we have certainly had lots of fun putting it together!
