Escapology Becomes a Vital Skill

As life on our beautiful rock grows louder, more disturbing, and more absurd, escapology becomes a vital skill.

So writes Jonathan Simons in a personable letter accompanying the latest Analog Sea Bulletin. It’s always good to see our parlance used in the wild.

The Bulletin is a willfully offline publication and you can send for a free copy by writing to Jonathan at one of his offices. I love the mischief of this.

The Bulletin is just 25 pages long but it’s beautifully presented and typeset, containing food for thought in the form of short writings by Virginia Woolf and Wim Wenders. It serves as a calling card for the main publication, Analog Sea Review, which is available by post or from an impressively large number of local stockists all over the world.


Robert Wringham is the editor of New Escapologist. He also writes books and articles. Read more at
