Issue 5 cover

The keen-eyed among you have noticed the cover image of Issue 5 at the shop.

Well, here it is. It’s our first ever departure from the established ’emergency exit’ masthead.

The really keen-eyed among you will notice the lack of a page number for the Alain de Botton interview in the bottom right-hand corner. That’s because this image is actually a draft mock-up. It gives an idea of how the cover of the fifth issue will look though. I hope you like it.

The cover price is yet to be confirmed. To ensure your copy for £6, pre-order it here.
