The combination of the Winter issue of SF and a small grey cloth-bound notebook makes an ideal introduction to the world of Slightly Foxed.
Slightly Foxed Issue 60
In this issue: Daisy Hay runs riot with Dickens • Alan Bradley stands up for purple prose • Hazel Wood meets an uncommon reader • Frances Donnelly finds a gap in the alphabet • Justin Marozzi is charmed by a modest mountaineer • Anne Boston gets the shivers in Cold War Siberia • Nigel Andrew wonders what happened to Elizabeth Jenkins • Sue Gaisford is seduced by a wicked Earl • Laurence Scott gets out his guitar • Sue Gee meets the man who drew Pooh • Richard Platt is gripped by the story of a lost will • Victoria Neumark goes in search of unicorns • Alastair Gleggsays a belated thank you, and much more besides . . .
A good sturdy notebook – the kind you’re not going to lose – is surely one of life’s essentials; a place for those vital to-do lists, a repository for Great Thoughts, memorable quotes, notes of books borrowed and lent, important addresses, other people’s recipes –its uses are endless. As a record, too, a notebook is every bit as immediate as a diary – a patchwork of everyday life that, years later, can vividly bring back the essence of a particular moment.
Just like the Slightly Foxed Editions, The Slightly Foxed Notebook is bound in cloth and comes complete with coloured endpapers, silk head- and tailband and ribbon marker. It makes a perfect present – and once you’ve seen it you’ll probably want to buy one for yourself.
