Oh Comely Issue 46
|Publisher Names||by Pirates Ahoy!|
This issue, we’re celebrating the joy of getting lost. Seeking solitude and hiding ourselves away – just for a little while. But, most of the time, we also need to be found.
Respite isn’t dependent on being alone. Sarah Corbett tells us how she brings people together to gently protest through crafting, and we meet the women of Iceland, the Nordic nation paving the way when it comes to gender equality.
Elsewhere, we meet the women creating art in their bedrooms, Greta Bellamacina writes a poem especially for us, and Olivia Colman encourages us to stand together, to know that – no matter what you’re going through – we’ve got your back.
oh comely is a curious, honest and playful independent magazine. It’s a place to meet strangers, hear their stories and look at life a little differently – where our readers are our writers and our models, too.
Each issue we pick a theme and see where it takes us. We try something old, something new and something that scares us a bit. Then we present our findings in a beautiful, artbook style, putting new writing, photography and illustration talent at the heart of it.
We believe good things come in threes. We began as the bedroom project of three pals at university and we’re now produced by a small publishing house started by another set of three friends.
You can find us all over the world in small newsagents, indie mag shops and cafes. Or hop over to our shop, where you can get hold of the latest editions, ‘surprise me!’ packages and never-miss-an-issue subscriptions.
We are bi-monthly, made in London
