The second issue of the Anglotopia Magazine is now at the printers and the digital version is now available to buy and download (digital subscribers will get an email with details on downloading – if you don’t get this email, please contact us). Print editions will ship in about two weeks.
The response to the first issue of the magazine was overwhelmingly positive. Readers loved it and it was a joy to watch it go out in the world. The first issue was so popular, we didn’t order enough and it sold out. We’ve ordered more copies for the second issue, but we still expect to sell out.
The magazine has grown by 4 pages this time around, which has allowed us to expand the writing. This issue features over 25,000 words of articles on British travel, place and culture. As with the last issue, it’s filled with beautiful photographs and artwork beautifully printed by our printer.
Paying for the Anglotopia Magazine allows you to support Anglotopia and helps keep this site running. It allows us to continue to commission great writers who produce some great articles about Britain. Despite the new focus on the magazine, we will continue to share articles daily on Anglotopia (and occasionally something from the magazine 2-3 months after publication).
The magazine is also ad free – so you get 64 full pages of great British stuff. We plan to keep the magazine ad free for the foreseeable future.
