peek into our current issue

issue 51

There's no point us acting all cool and casual about this, so here goes. Insert ecstatic hyperventilating noises at will.

Issue 51 is on sale in Australia today and it kicks off with an interview with Molly freakin' Ringwald! Huzzah! And ends on an interview with Twiggy! Double huzzah! Yes, it's a Molly-Twiggy magazine sandwich, and of course we haven't stinted on the fillings.

Inside you'll find: professional mermaids, fabric made from milk, a brief and slightly disturbing history of baking, sassy new shoes, stories from a midwife in Sierra Leone, wine pairing for cheap eats (pinot noir with beans on toast, anyone?) and the gentle art of getting lost.

Plus there's a bit of a bumper craft spectacular – featuring six cheap and easy DIY pressie ideas – a small amount of philosophising and loads of awesome science geeks.

Not to forget chats with Santigold, Sigur Ros, Antony & the Johnsons, Dirty Projectors, Animal Collective and some blokes who make waffles for a living (hands up who wants their jobs).

In short, loads of frankie goodness to gorge on over the hols. We hope you find it delicious.
