London’s Coolest New Magazines — & The People Who Make Them

Print is dead? Try telling that to your local newsstand. Whether it's a symptom of digital detoxing, or a sign that London creativity needs more outlets, the capital has been flooded with a host of hot new reads. Seriously — our nightstands are starting to reach Shard heights. 
We certainly don't mind. This city is teeming with so much ingenuity, innovation, and creative force that it seems fitting to see many of these viewpoints documented on good old-fashioned paper. This new wave of magazines is ready to be pored over and flicked through, right in your own two hands.
There's Leith Clark's Violet and Alice Goddard's Hot and Cool. There's Toast and Gourmand. There's our own fashion director Paula Goldstein Di Principe's upcoming Voyage Scrapbook, which launches this summer. 
We selected such six shelf-stoppers worthy of careful attention. From fashion to felines, culture to chic living, these London mags are breathing fresh air into the magazine industry. Learn more about what makes their makers tick — and pick up some editor-approved tips on the city's best spots — in the slideshow ahead. Happy reading!
