Weekend Reading... LAW and The Travel Almanac

<span class=

With a jetlagged and exhausted Susie sleeping off her New York travels I was eager to make use of a quiet weekend by immersing myself in the printed word. Having started my weekend with a trip to Goodhood (future blog post in the works) I took advantage of the store's excellent array of difficult to source publications and zines. Somewhat spoilt for choice I turned to Kyle Stewart for his recommendations. I left with the debut issue of LAW and the second issue of the The Travel Almanac.

Now, I had already heard positive murmurings around the latter given the features on musician Will Oldham, artist and former fashion designer Helmut Lang, and actress Juliette Lewis which sit alongside various excursion fodder in a aesthetically pleasing and thought provoking package. However, Brighton based John Holt's LAW is a new discovery. This bi-annual is concerned with documenting the overlooked and giving people a sense of belonging and recognition that perhaps they would not normally receive but in no way shape or form less deserve. Where The Travel Almanac explores the beyond and inspires a sophisticated generation of travellers, LAW portrays the beautiful in everyday and focuses on what's right under our noses. Time to put the kettle on and enter these two worlds...
