peek into our current issue

issue 88

Happy on-sale day to you, frankie friends! Issue 88 is officially out in the big, wide world, with plenty of goodness squished between its pages. Like what, you ask? Well, Curious George and/or Georgette, there’s a guide to starting your own veggie patch, for one – complete with a handy-dandy planting chart. You’ll also find a breakdown of the best and worst places to take a dip, some rather glorious marine-inspired weaving, and paintings devoted to the art of doing nothing at all. We meet some pretty special people, as well: creative types in shared studios; a lass inspired by her cross-cultural adoption; and another who spends her days staring into space for legitimate work. We discuss things only people with cancer know; romance novels that don’t totally suck; and explore some of history’s secret languages and codes. All that, plus the usual laughs, prettiness and chin-scratchers? Sounds pretty good, if we do say so ourselves.


Activewear that’ll have you off the couch and moving.


Talking teamwork, democracy and setting up shop.

Across the ditch: issue 88 should hit stores in New Zealand on Feb 25th. Ask your local stockist if it's not on shelves then.

Overseas readers: We'll be with you shortly (click here to find out when), but if that's too far away, you can order a copy online and we'll send it straight out.
