Idler Magazine 57 : November/December 2017
An absolutely marvellous publication this one, we think that The Idler would have found just as fine a reception in Victorian England as it does here.
The Idler is undeniably old-fashioned, a publication that celebrates independence and liberty and scoffs at the idea of hard work. This excellently presented publication features an eclectic mix of diversions – revealing and fascinating conversations with persons of note, cultured and intelligent essays on all manner of things – though each edition has a central theme – and extracts from excellent works of fiction from throughout history. This is the kind of cultured periodical that would work wonderfully with a leisurely cup of coffee in a fine establishment – perhaps even the Idler Bookshop and Café in London.
