ten fabulous years of amelia's magazine
If you've never heard of Amelia's Magazine, simply put - you're missing out. Created and run by the wonderfully talented Amelia Gregory, it's a wonderfully creative and eclectic mash-up of beautiful writing, illustration and photography; covering topics such as fashion (the Fashion Week reviews are always a good read), earth and environment, art and music, it's a great alternative to all of the carbon-copy mainstream magazines, and is one of my favourite places on the internet.
I first stumbled across Amelia's a few years ago, and was lucky enough to be able to contribute a few illustrations to some of the open briefs (pictured above); nowadays I just read and enjoy, and couldn't have been more pleased to discover that to celebrate ten years of the magazine, Amelia is planning to print a book full of creative writing and the most exquisite illustrations. Those Which We Do Not Understand is to be an exploration into the way humans seek to comprehend the things they don't unerstand in their lives; think paranormal activities, the moon, the occult, paganism and herbalism.
The project is currently live on Kickstarter, with a series of amazing rewards for backers, from postcards and rare back-issues of Amelia's Magazine, to copies of the book and limited edition gold-leaf A3 art prints; currently at £9,863 with 309 backers, the project is so close to it's £12,000 goal. Every little helps, so if you can pledge anything (even £1!), or even just fancy spreading the word, get involved by visiting the Kickstarter page here and Amelia's Magazine here.
