'A journal of cultural entanglement'
A new publication for 2022, the beautifully-put together, large-format Linseed Journal is named for linseed (also commonly known as flax seed) and is an 'almanac of seasonal graft, and a larder of local lore.' In practice, that translates to essays, art, illustration, crafts, history, culture and more.
Appearing biannually, each issue will be themed around a single organic material. This time, it's The Apple. Inside, artists reflect on the ecology of Mexico and Tasmania, journalists report from Kenya and Nova Scotia, and writers draw inspiration from their neighbourhoods in Glasgow, New York and East London.
