Oh Comely - Issue 43
|Publisher Names||by Pirates Ahoy!|
Our midsummer issue is all about Identity. And, as we're in the era of the selfie, we thought we'd invite five different artists to create self portraits especially for us. The results are endlessly fascinating and touch on topics from religion and society to simply playing dress up. Elsewhere, we explore ideas about gender and stereotype through clothing, writers tell us the lessons they learnt from their make-up routines, we uncover the lists that made up a life and discover novels that were written in cafes. We also chat to actress Alisha Boe on the subjects of sexual assault and victim blaming, poet Hollie McNish about turning 30, and ask Lily Vanilli to bake us a floral fantasy of cake.

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.
