Happy Reader #9 ‘Lily Cole’

£3.00

Inside: happy reader

Firm shop favourite alert! The new Happy Reader meets Lily Cole for a long and engrossing chat. This is a model/actress who owns a bookshop, so we’re immediately on side. 22 pages of fascinating chat AND photographs by Wolfgang Tillmans – that would be worth £3 on its own right? Well, add in 30 additional pages of articles on Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island and this is becomes the best value mag on the market. From a rare interview with XTC’s Andy Partridge to appearances of Long John Silver on the silver screen – there is everything here for the pirate lover

Expect:

A quarterly dip into bookish waters. The Happy Reader, a collaboration between Fantastic Man and Penguin Books, is one half in-depth interview with a book fanatic and one half a rediscovery of a Penguin Classic.

Highlight:

Two gorgeous pages of flag designs to delight the vexillogist
