‘ . . . it couldn’t be more bookish if it tried.’

‘For those bibliophiles who yearn for a whiff of an era when a chap wanting something bound in leather on the Charing Cross Road looked to Marks & Co., not Ann Summers, Slightly Foxed will come as manna from heaven . . . it couldn’t be more bookish if it tried.’ Guardian

‘Pocket-sized little chunks of perfection’

‘A memoir written in the late 1920s and recently republished in the beautiful Slightly Foxed Paperback series. The book tells of Bell’s move, at 20 years old, from bohemian Battersea to a small farm in Suffolk. Bell is a favourite of mine, and his nature writing is immediately transporting. It doesn’t hurt, either, that the Slightly Foxed Paperbacks, pocket-sized little chunks of perfection, are the most beautifully made paperbacks I’ve ever had the pleasure to own. They’re made by a traditional small press in Yorkshire to standards that make reading on a device seem like the most depressing possible compromise.’ On Adrian Bell’s Corduroy

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.’
