peek into our current issue

issue 84

It’s a big day in frankie land, because our first-ever winter bumper issue has made its way into the world! On sale around Australia, the extra-cosy edition contains a special pull-out puzzle book (illustrated by the excellent Ashley Ronning); two art posters (including one that will teach you the Auslan alphabet); and a woolly cover stitched just for us by clever Canadian crafter Sophie MacNeill (aka Slow Stitch Sophie). If that’s not enough goodness, there’s also belly-warming hot chocolate recipes; tips for achieving long-term love; an Indian-Australian fashion label; illustrated happy places; non-scary financial advice, plus a whole lot more. Phewph!
