Lodestars Anthology is a magazine-meets-journal for curious travellers who long to see, chat about and experience this big old world of ours.
It is a magazine about place, travel and exploration, one that you’d ideally like to keep on your coffee table – or filled with scribblings and safely stored in your suitcase. It is independently published, distributed internationally and dedicated to exploring the globe one country per issue.
Full of photographs, illustrations, creative writing, city guides and personal musings, it is designed to fuel your love of adventure, life and all the people, destinations and ideas this world has to offer. Printed on high quality paper and perfect-bound the focus is as much on design as it is on content and wanderlust.
Issue 01 England
England ... it is sylvan, unpredictable, sublime, originative and contradictory - a land of eccentricity and ingenuity, a mix of worlds, practices and lifestyles all enriched and enlivened by an enthrallingly complex past. Travel here and discover more than you thought possible - and that defining Englishness is a daunting task indeed.
This is a magazine about forests, crags and drystone walls; about culinary daring, crumbling ruins and journeys into the wild. It is an ode to literary histories and a smuggling past, coastal towns and cultural capitals. Recalling long forgotten giants and lingering lore, this is our homage to England and the verve that makes it eternal.
