Editor: Tom Hodgkinson

Cover: Michael Dunbabin

A bimonthly magazine helping readers ‘to lead more fulfilled lives’ through idleness. On the special edition cover this issue is Smokin' Rachel (Weisz), who chats with The Idler about her new miniseries Dead Ringers, the gender-swapping remake of David Cronenberg's 80s thriller.

The Idler celebrates thirty years with this issue. While reflecting on its own humble combination digital and analog origins of the early '90s, the latest issue rails against big tech with articles from Cory Doctorow and Mark Vernon, plus Cath Kidston at home with her IRL geraniums. 

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.’
