The Fence has rapidly developed a devoted readership for its scurillous and very English mix of humour, investigation and politics. Smartly presented in black and red with copious illustration, it’s a unique publication that describes itself as ‘The UK’s only magazine’. Patently untrue of course, perhaps a better description comes from Graydon Carter: ‘the illegitimate offspring of Private Eye and Evelyn Waugh.’

Summer may be over, but one can still get hot and bothered with the latest issue: Sex and Nature—which The Fence insists they have kept separate and are not implying ‘sex in nature,’ despite the declaration on the back cover. Find confessions of struggling to commune with the great outdoors, the rich history of Showmen in Hampstead Heath, and not one, but two pieces on sexy trees.

Sorry, not enough stock!
