Oh Comely Spring 2018 - Issue 42
|Publisher Names||by Pirates Ahoy!|
It's usually a task lurking at the bottom of our to-do list, but this issue we're embracing a good old spring clean. We're clearing up our minds, our wardrobes, our lives, as well as those dusty cobwebs lurking in the corners of our bedroom (just us?). It's amazing what what we've learnt along the way. We've fallen back in love with clothes we’d forgotten about – inspiring us to question our ethical attitude to our sartorial choices – and reread those books that became pivotal in our lives, shifting our outlook and shaping the people that we have become. Elsewhere in the issue, we chat to the Slits' Viv Albertine about death and body hair and sit a vegan at a dinner table with a couple of carnivores.
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.
