jacobin – #28
issue 28 of Jacobin, ‘the health of nations’ focuses its attention on ailing national health systems, including this stand-out piece on Britain’s NHS, penned by Jacobin’s Europe Editor, Ronan Burtenshaw. The Affordable Care Act (or ‘Obamacare’) and its subsequent watering down by Donald Trump’s administration gets a lot of attention in this issue, as does private medicine in general. there’s also an interview with Bernie Sanders, infographics on internationalist medical programs and a look at big pharma.
ernest – #7
yet another new magazine in our roster, Ernest’s seventh edition includes features that go even beyond our planet, including amongst others: baking in space; a photographic journey on Scotland’s north coast; and an excellent essay written by Carol Devine who is mapping Antarctica for places named after its female scientists and explorers in history. there is a super collection of photographs and guides to East Anglia, as well many great illustrated maps and photography brought together by a new clean design.
little white lies – #74
issue 74 of Little White Lies enters the offbeat world of Wes Anderson to coincide with the release of his latest film, Isle of Dogs. features include: an interview with Anderson; an illustrated history of movie dogs; and a brilliant selection of Wes Anderson movie posters creatively reimagined with dogs by their team of illustrators. elsewhere there’s interviews with Claire Denis, Jessie Buckley, Robin Campillo, Valeska Grisebach, Lui Jian, Anya Taylor-Joy and Olivia Cooke, and the latest compendium of film reviews.
pressing matters – #3
Pressing Matters, new to MagShuffle this week, continues in the great legacy of magazines published in Bristol, and this magazine is an ode to letterpress printing with features on techniques as well as the people who make it their careers and hobbies. the issue is full of fine examples of illustrations and type, as well as super interviews with Dave Lefner on his process of making huge reduction prints; and with Delita Martin, whose prints portray black women with power and grace.
ethos – #5
issue 5 of Ethos is the magazine’s first issue to enter MagShuffle’s roster, and it’s a fantastic edition which focuses on women in business. there are features on Silicon Valley loan disrupter Kiva by talking to its engagement and education manager, Jessica Hansen; another on an organisation promoting African women’s entrepreneurship; and a discussion with Silicon Valley Robotics’ Andra Keay who talks about ethics and gender bias in artificial intelligence. elsewhere there are various features on new sustainable technologies and sustainability in food. those who have selected Positive News or Courier before will find great interest in this.
