A bimonthly magazine helping readers ‘to lead more fulfilled lives’ through idleness.
On the cover of this issue it's 'The Kindly Heretic', Rupert Sheldrake (yes, father to Merlin and Cosmo — mushroom boy and music boy). Also featured 'How to Free Your Time', 'The Art of Mind Maps', 'Getting Medieval: Crazy Cathedral Carvings' (who knew!) and plenty more to idle away your time to.
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.’
