Oh Comely - Issue 40
|Publisher Names||by Pirates Ahoy!|
Our midwinter issue celebrates and explores the patterns of our lives – the ones we weave ourselves and others we're trying to break. From Esther Lederberg who carved her own niche in the male-dominated world of science back in the '50s, to our own generation of feminists who are still fighting to change misogynistic attitudes and make our world a safer place. Elsewhere, we chat to actor Hayley Squires and musical twins, Ibeyi; compare books to perfume; head out with women who work in the dark; and snoop inside readers' bedrooms...
oh comely is a curious, honest and playful independent magazine. It’s a place to meet strangers, hear their stories and look at life a little differently – where our readers are our writers and our models, too.
Each issue we pick a theme and see where it takes us. We try something old, something new and something that scares us a bit. Then we present our findings in a beautiful, artbook style, putting new writing, photography and illustration talent at the heart of it.
We believe good things come in threes. We began as the bedroom project of three pals at university and we’re now produced by a small publishing house started by another set of three friends.
