Issue Three — Free!

Issue Three is the most popular issue of New Escapologist we’ve ever done.

Seven years on, it still sells well. Who knows why?

Maybe it’s for the emphasis on practicalities. Maybe it’s for the very funny piece about skiving at work. Maybe it’s for the lovely interview with Tom Hodgkinson.

Whatever the reason for the issue’s popularity, we’re going to honor its godfather status by giving it away for free on PDF to everyone on the New Escapologist mailing list.

Many will know we ran a similar give-away for Issue Twelve last month. The response was encouraging, so we’re doing this one more (and only one more!) time.

Join the list today and we’ll send out the PDF on August 1st.

★ Buy the brand-new Issue 12 of New Escapologist at the shop; buy our popular digital bundle; or get the Escape Everything! book.
