The new 7th Edition of my favourite independent magazine is a special one as it’s double the size. It’s more of a book now with 240 pages of ad free seasonal beauty and inspiration. Eleanor who creates the magazine decided to move to a bi-annual edition which was crowdfunded earlier this year and there are only a limited number of copies printed. It’s packed full of lovely features and photography around the spring and summer theme of “EMERGE”. If you haven’t yet read an issue of Creative Countryside, it is a magazine “For those who strive to live more slowly, who are inspired by the first snowdrop and who walk outside in the rain. For lovers of stories, everyday adventures and local traditions. For those who opt for simplicity, appreciate ancient crafts, and celebrate the seasons”. It is more a book than a magazine, something to keep on the coffee table and dip back into again and again. This beautiful bumper issue explores so many different things including hanami blossom celebrations, prescribing nature for physical and mental health, midsummer magic, and much more with beautiful seasonal stories, recipes and imagery that celebrate the best of Spring and Summer.
