London, UK
Editor: Tom Hodgkinson
Art director: Alice Smith
Cover: Michael Dunbabin

A bimonthly magazine helping readers ‘to lead more fulfilled lives’ through idleness.

The latest edition puts rest at the centre: catch some Z's with cover star Tricia Hersey, founder of the Nap Ministry and leader in the revolutionary potential of sleeping on the job, uncover George Orwell's origins as a ‘rest radical,’ and relax the grip on control by saying yes more than no

On the Journal:
‘Tom Hodgkinson launched The Idler in 1993 as a celebration of loafing, taking the name from a 1758 essay by Dr Johnson… ‘Every man is, or hopes to be, an idler.’
