“That’s what winter is: an exercise in remembering how to still yourself then how to come pliantly back to life again.” – Ali Smith, Winter.

Slowing down is a wonderful thing. When winter arrives we’re suddenly presented with an opportunity to pause and enjoy a quieter time of the year. It’s time to rest and recoup and prepare for another year ahead while reflecting on the year that passed. Our winter issue celebrates this time of the year where we find ourselves craving comfort and calm. Our illustrations and stories are inspired by things that interested us and brought us joy. We’re so happy to be able to share them with you.
