‘A great present for those who love books.’ – Financial Times

‘The arrival of a new issue of Slightly Foxed makes me drop everything. I read it from cover to cover and it immediately sends me off to order a number of the books that it features. Slightly Foxed is a brilliant idea, beautifully realized.’ – Alexander McCall Smith

‘Slightly Foxed’s best offering is its quarterly, in which a dozen or so elegant essays make a case for various neglected books. A subscription would make an inspired gift for a hungry reader.’ – Telegraph

A World of Good Reading

The independent-minded quarterly magazine that combines good looks, good writing and a personal approach. Slightly Foxed introduces its readers to books that are no longer new and fashionable but have lasting appeal. Good-humoured, unpretentious and a bit eccentric, it’s more like having a well-read friend than a subscription to a literary review.


Each issue of Slightly Foxed  offers 96 pages of lively personal recommendations for books of lasting interest – books, including fiction and non-fiction, that have stood the test of time and have left their mark on the people who write about them. It’s an eclectic mix, and our contributors are an eclectic bunch too – some well-known, others not so, but all passionate about sharing their enthusiasm for a book or author.

Our readers enjoy the way Slightly Foxed  opens up unexpected new horizons and they love the way it looks and feels – printed on elegant cream paper and bound at a traditional printing press. They love our beautifully produced series of classic memoirs and vintage children’s books too.

So whether you’re in search of stimulation, consolation or diversion, a treat for yourself or a present for a bookish friend, then why not take out a subscription to Slightly Foxed  or give a single issue or one of our books a try? Becoming a Foxed reader is more like joining a fellowship of booklovers around the world than simply signing up for a subscription to a literary magazine.
