peek into our current issue

issue 58

Hooley dooley! Issue 58 is on sale in Australia today, and you really only need one reason to buy it. John Waters – the trash-tastic brain behind Cry-Baby, Pecker and Hairspray – has agreed to be our agony aunt for one time only, and his life advice is, frankly, priceless. We also have some philosophical musings on the subjects of eyeliner, ice skating and having ethnic parents; pet portraits from animal-loving artists; and a little look at what it's like to hear with a bionic ear (quite tinny, apparently). There are things to try at home – like making a pretty pinata – and things you'd never want to try at home, like historical hangover cures. We've got modern bands making vintage sounds, a Sydney couple who've been together 70 years (and had 17 kids), lots of Lithuanian ladies wearing babushka scarves and some of our best-loved creatives sharing their favourite Little Golden Book memories. Oh, and roughly a metric tonne of sweet reads, snazzy fashions and designs, travel tales, music, art, photography and general top stuff.
