IFLA! has defined a new type of politically engaged indie mag: creatively engaged but intelligently lo-fi, it places environmentalism in the everyday.
This is their first issue back after a short hiatus from regular publishing and following their one-off, special edition which offered a collection of ‘Creative Responses to the Climate Crisis’. Issue 10, a coveted milestone for any printed publication, is themed ‘Plants’ and will also be Martha Dillon's last issue as editor (where to next, Martha?)
