Issue 05: The Changes Issue
In the age of the instant online fix, time is now the ultimate luxury. Hole & Corner is dedicated to those who take the time to do things the right way – whether you’re halfway up a munro in the Scottish Highlands or doing intricate embroidery work in St Paul’s Cathedral.
As Hole & Corner goes through its own changes, this theme is explored thoroughly. From the woodworker who inspired a generation of designer-makers to the medieval horticulturalist who invented modern gardening; from the Luddite rebellion to the role of the iPad in art: this issue is full of transformative moments – both great and small.
There’s Ben Short, who gave up a life in advertising to make charcoal in the woods. There’s David Reynolds, the founder of Bloomsbury Publishing, on his discovery of Slow Travel.
Elsewhere, we explore the fascinating history and artefacts hidden behind the doors of Port Eliot, interview the bodgers keeping ancient traditions alive in a modern department store… and drop in a few Bowie references along the way.
But we’ll always stick to the values we hold dear. And that means ensuring the magazine remains as beautifully crafted as the subject matter it explores.
Welcome to Issue 05 of Hole & Corner.
Take your time. Give it a good read…
