Another Escape

Another Escape Vol. One // A Creative Exploration

Available now from fen and ned

Another Escape is a new UK based independent publication, by co-editors Rachel Maria Taylor and Jody Daunton

Here is what they say about Another Escape

We all get those moments in life when we experience, if only for a second, something that utterly inspires us; we want to be a musician, a dancer, a bee keeper, a circus performer. It may be the overwhelming desire to collect new experiences, travel, or learn a new skill or language. But what if we actually played on these inspirations-turned-aspirations?

It is exhilarating to find individuals enthralled by their own lifestyle, people who inquisitively investigate their confines and comfortability and that feel creatively ambitious, whether it be in the most minute way or by a colossal change. We can take away from these energetic individuals fuel for our own motivation, and Another Escape looks to tap and bottle this invigorating subject matter, and subsequently encourage others to actively explore their own aspirations.

We are big fans of the printed word (and image), and wanted to create a well designed tactile object, that would slot onto your bookcase, sit on the coffee table or be slung into a rucksack. We believe that the interaction and experience that printed material allows is invaluable, and we look to be a permanent fixture on your shelf.

Through our ethos we have created a magazine that looks to inspire and explore. In the future we look to expand our brand, but for now we are happy telling stories.

The co-editors and their fantastic team of writers, photographers and illustrators have achieved so much with this first volume. It's well chosen content ranges from interviews with, Fashion textiles designer Sophie Fox, James Lucas from the Bristol Bike Project, to visiting a 35 year old settlement in Wales and talking to the community that live there.
The words and visuals are both honest and inspiring, with no over styled imagery, you are instead treated to superb writing and stunningly beautiful photography.
