‘I was away for the last few days and came back very depressed about the referendum result and full of foreboding. Yesterday as I was checking through my mail I read this message. I laughed at the Daisy Ashford article for several minutes – and also learnt a lot. I also greatly enjoyed the Howard Phipps illustration. The world seemed a less dismal place! Thank you so much!’

The notebook is a Christmas present for my daughter, who loves a nice notebook for use at work – even though she works for IBM, she still likes the old ways too! I am sure this one will be much appreciated.’

‘I have just finished reading the Slightly Foxed Edition of Period Piece by Gwen Raverat. A charming read, delightfully written. What a contrast the life of the “Upper Classes” was in the late 1800s and early 1900s, with my own upbringing in a mining family in a South Yorkshire mining town in the 1930s. Fascinating.’

Reading it, with its fine paper and its perfect size, slows me down in the very best way. Smith Settle have done a magnificent job in its production, and the choice of Bielenberg’s memoir is really inspired as it requires quiet contemplation and a slow pace to take in the import of the years the author so sensitively describes. You have brought a slice of slowness (a very good thing) into my life in the form of this beautiful edition.’

‘Again, another great read, despite being only halfway through. The quality of the articles has prompted me to make a couple of purchases, but I always have a niggling doubt as to whether I want to read the books because of the books themselves, or really because of the way the books are presented by your writers. Please do not take this as a criticism, only as an observation. I continue to sing the praises of this publication to friends and family etc, and I know that a good friend of mine recently subscribed based on my relentless “going on about it”. I love the look and feel of the mag and particularly love the cover design. Marvellous.’

A little companion to take for reading on trains, waiting in queues or in the afternoon as the sun goes down. Reconfirms my view that England has the greatest collection of wonderfully eccentric over-educated people who every quarter demonstrate the benefits of a classical education. Only problem is you sending me broke as when I see mention of a book I haven’t heard of I get on the second hand book sites searching for it. Alas I find them and then buy them . . .’

My mother, who has always been a great reader and of literary bent, has just been diagnosed with cancer, a shock for us all. I introduced her to Slightly Foxed in hospital and it lifted her spirits dramatically. She is now at home coming to terms with things and so I’ve ordered these back copies to help keep her spirits up because she has devoured every edition I have. Every time I visit her she mentions what a delight your reviews are and how wonderfully written and charming. Thank you so much, you are bringing her true pleasure at a very bleak time.’

‘The articles in Slightly Foxed are brilliant – it goes without saying, but may I put a word in for the illustrations in your magazine.

‘Yes, unusual and also stimulating, educational, amusing, informative and very well written. On top of which it is beautifully produced, lovely paper and layout and super illustrations.

Our readers write . . .

‘Your magazine is a total delight. I clutch it close to my person when it arrives, in the way that children do on the arrival of a new Harry Potter. I, for one, would not mind at all if you put up the price a bit. It is extremely good value. Beyond that material consideration, it is a wonderful breeze of fresh air. I have spent decades teaching literature in universities, and it has become rarer and rarer to find writing that is well written, let alone witty or “humanistic”. You are among the present pioneers in reviving a style I loved in my youth, when writers could carry immense learning or experience lightly, and write about almost anything in a way that extended one’s life, rather like those marvellous movies in the fifties when the screen widened and widened and one was off, around the world in eighty minutes.
When did writing become brittle, narrow, jargon-ridden, and often arrogant? Every article you publish demonstrates that there is abundant life in the old art still. I do hope you will go from strength to strength. We need you.’

‘I read one copy of the magazine, and find myself immersed in nostalgia and desire to re-read books that I might not have read for twenty or thirty years. At other times I get a burning desire to read something new. Occasionally I am discouraged from reading virtually everything that is written about. I think this proves that you are serving your purpose. You are not being all things to all people. You are producing something of tremendous value, and one of the quotes on your brochure, that the magazine may not be essential but it would be difficult to live without applies to me!’

Our readers write . . .

‘I was really delighted with my sample copy of Slightly Foxed. The magazine is a pleasure to handle, and the articles, while being scholarly and informative, are written to interest the reader rather than to display the author’s erudition.’

‘I have read every issue since you first started publishing to date, and have thoroughly enjoyed every one of them.

‘Thank you for sending the books so efficiently and in such good condition. Bit by bit I intend to order them all and then subscribe. It is a marvelous journal which I have been reading both at the London Library and Brooks’s.

‘A good London friend who was visiting in New York recently, and I, were commiserating about the current black hole in the world of books, publishing and bookstores. So he felt I was ready for Slightly Foxed which I had never heard about! I feel I am coming out of my mourning. I just wish the English Pound/US Dollar was more friendly and then I would purchase all the back copies. I have already alerted friends in South Africa and family in Australia that you exist – we can’t believe we did not know of your existence.’


Foxed

The renewal reminder arrived and I decided I’ve got too many books, not enough time to read them, no more book shelf space, and can’t afford it, then foolishly I started to read Issue 16 and so here’s my cheque.

‘True story: I was rattling in on Thames Link from Luton airport and my Easyjet flight from Inverness when a woman of a certain age – OK my age, maybe a year or two older – got in at somewhere like Harpenden. Greying, lightly tanned (the garden in France, I expect), sensible shoes, firm step and firm jaw . . . 50 years ago she would have been the vicar’s wife, now of course of ‘someone in the City.’ Only at Finchley Road did I notice she was reading the Autumn issue. And very engrossed too. At King’s Cross, she closed it (the pieces are an excellent length for such journeys), gazed with firm (again) satisfaction at the cover and then put it away in her (sensible) handbag. There you go!’

‘It is true to say when you subscribe to Slightly Foxed you do not just buy a ‘Literary Magazine’ you also join a Club. A Club of discerning and eager book lovers whose appetites are whetted but never completely assuaged by devouring the pages and ordering books not always read previously. The Autumn issue has just arrived. There is no need to disguise it. My wife knows her life would not be worth living if she tried to read it first.’

Our readers write . . .

‘Dennis Silk deserves a gold medal for writing about Sheila Stewart’s little gem of a masterpiece Lifting the Latch. The pleasure I have derived from reading this, at times heart wrenching tale is almost beyond description. The only drawback to subscribing to Slightly Foxed is that one wants to go out and buy book after book, having had the appetite whetted from reading yet another fascinating article about a previously unknown author or book. If, as seems to lie the case, you are going from strength to strength, it is surely richly deserved.’

‘I am disappointed if I haven’t already got a couple of the books reviewed and seem to buy a couple more most quarters. You have a good eye for an entertaining reviewer and many books, even if not ordered from Abe or Amazon, remain on a virtual wants list for visits to (vanishing) second-hand bookshops. I feel that one of the ways that nature helps us cope with advancing years is to show us that new things tend to be worse than what has gone before. Slightly Foxed is an exception. Long may you thrive!’

‘Congratulations on your Index – and on the inclusion of the piece about Elizabeth Taylor in the last issue.

‘It was a fortunate day when I came across a copy of the third edition of Slightly Foxed in Blackwell’s Charing Cross Road . . . yet with its suggestions for further reading, it is yet another excuse for me to buy yet more books. The floors of this house groan with the weight of them, and the walls will soon buckle. However, as you all realise, once the pleasurable addiction has been acquired it’s not very easy to get rid of. Even if one wanted to. So, it’s a happy day every quarter when the latest edition of SF falls through the letterbox.’

‘There is a nostalgic – dare one say almost whimsical – quality to Slightly Foxed which is both appealing and quietly stimulating … At times there is also “something of the night” about it but in this case the sort of black night when there is no greater pleasure than pulling the curtains against the cold, driven rain and lighting the fire.’

‘Discovering Slightly Foxed was rather like meeting someone for the first time but feeling that somehow you’ve met before. Some sixty years ago when an art student opting for book illustration as a main subject I loved the handling of well-produced books – that must have been when I met you before!’

‘Not only is it a fantastic read in its own right, it introduces the reader to an eclectic, unusual selection of reading material outside the usual bestseller lists and books of the week.’

Bernard Cornwell

‘It’s a joy, a delight, a quarterly treat that drives me to the bookshelves, the bookshop or the library in search of forgotten or never-encountered pleasures. I won’t say that Slightly Foxed is essential, it’s just that I can’t live without it any more.’

‘Think of it as Reading Rainbow for adults with a high literary standard and strong preference for books that delight rather than depress. The magazine is beautifully made, and it’s one of the few quarterlies we read cover-to-cover the moment it arrives.’

‘For all ‘Real Readers’ it’s exciting to open a new issue of Slightly Foxed, sure of meeting a kindred spirit in each little essay – though that’s all you can be sure of, given the deliciously unpredictable variety of themes.…

‘The back copies I ordered arrived safely this week, and now I have something to read while in a long supermarket queue when the customers in front are fiddling around looking for small change in the bottom of a capacious bag. Besides being so attractively produced, they are usefully portable.’

Slightly Foxed is a handsome handful of thick creaminess, always with lovely covers, and would make a great present for someone who likes books, and for who you can never think of a remotely suitable present … the magazine is rather like that voice you always hope to hear behind you in old bookshops . . . ‘Ah now that’s an interesting one.’

Tim Mackintosh-Smith

‘I’m not sure if the rules of ‘Desert Island Discs’ allow a periodical instead of a book; but if they do – and no doubt the people at Brewhouse Yard could arrange delivery by homing albatross – I’d go for a subscription to Slightly Foxed and ration myself, very strictly, to an article a week . . . And I know I’d still read it in one go the day it arrived.’

‘A quarterly box of delights – always something unexpected to excite the taste buds of the bookish. I know it’s planned, but it feels fortuitous and that’s quite an art.’
