Another fantastic find (via Magma) this magazine is just full of really creative, inspiring, interesting and quite lengthy features.

I was drawn to it as the cover art (fallen leaves, pool of water) …I just had to pick it from the shelf… upon first flick-through I noticed a two page spread on favourite bookshops from around the world and I was hooked. Yet the features are really quite varied. Random even. But somehow it works….

Still on the I bookshop theme, I was fascinated to read all about a bookshop (co-operative?) in Greece, Atlantis Books.  With a somewhat naive, hippy-like ideal and a drunken conversation leading to the culmination of the bookshop, it sounds, to me, like the stuff of dreams…

Though I also really appreciate the, at turns, humble and frank, words of founder Craig Walzer, sharing his varied experiences, in the interview, be this his taking a ‘time out’ from his studies, or creeping into refugee camps, in Sudan, to hear and record peoples stories…. I sometimes feel that there are people out there that over-achieve and get involved in many different things in this big wide world, to perhaps compensate for those of us that cannot figure out what to do…

I also enjoyed reading about Lynette Chiang and her adventures on her bicycle! – I’ve got to go now,. as the remainder of the magazine is calling out to me..
