Inside Oh Comely Issue 48
In the uncertain times we’re living in, finding your own place in the world has never felt more vital. Whether it’s in the company of a good book, your best friend or simply being content with the face that stares back at you from the mirror. We hope this issue helps you on your own journey.
We’ve had the honour of meeting a host of inspirational women who have taught us new ways of seeing the world, including the authors stepping into the shoes of real women from the past and the remarkable models of the Radical Beauty Project who all have Down's syndrome, but will never let labels define who they are.
Elsewhere, we LOL with Charly Clive, launch our first ever poetry competition and throw in some fruit for good measure – because we're good for you, like your five-a-day.
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.
You can find us all over the world in small newsagents, indie mag shops and cafes. Or hop over to our shop, where you can get hold of the latest editions, ‘surprise me!’ packages and never-miss-an-issue subscriptions.
We are bi-monthly, made in London.
