A new issue of London’s most unusual magazine has just landed on our desk. CurioCity is a miniature guide to London, full of trivia, walks, maps and cleverly folded editorial. Indeed, it folds up so small, you can fit it into that little demi-pocket that sits mysteriously above, and slightly within, the main pocket in your jeans (now, finally, we know what it’s for).
This month’s issue is published in a collaboration with the National Trust, whose London Project recently co-organised a day of artistic pilgrimage from Borough to William Morris’s Red House in Bexleyheath. Half of CurioCity includes maps and footnotes to allow you to recreate this splendid journey.
On the flipside, you’ll find the usual enwhimslement of facts and fancies about London, many riffing on themes of pilgrimage, divinity and exploration (the ‘E’ of ‘Issue E’ stands for Escaping London). Contributors include Mark Mason (Walk The Lines), Tom Bolton (London’s Lost Rivers), Richard Barnett (Medical London) and Londonist M@.
You can get hold of a copy of Issue E (and back issues) online right now for just £2.50 + £1 postage. It’ll be in selected shops on Monday 23 September — usually beside the tills. Wear your CurioCity with pride.
