Literary Review was founded in Edinburgh in 1979 by Dr Anne Smith, head of the English Department at Edinburgh University. She wanted to create a lively, intelligent literary magazine for people who love reading but shudder at academic and intellectual jargon. The iconic covers have been illustrated since 1997 by Chris Riddell, who was made Children’s Laureate in 2015.’
