Pretty Nostalgic Magazine

I have been enjoying Pretty Nostalgic magazine since the very first issue and it rapidly became my favourite, even the smell of it is lovely. The content takes you back to almost another time of in direct opposition to the modern world with it's living of life at breakneck speed, materialism and our disposable society. It brings the past to life again and makes it relevant to the modern day. Over the past year the magazine has had a slight change in direction, while keeping to all it's original ethos it's now morphed in to a society of like minded individuals and as such is now available only at selected outlets or via membership/subscription to the magazine. More information can be found at the Pretty Nostalgic website. It was lovely to receive the new style compendium society magazine through the door this morning, so many interesting articles to read and enjoy.

  2. I found the magazine once at the local bookseller and I really enjoyed it, especially the pledge. I thought maybe they'd quit carrying it because I hadn't seen it since, but I guess it was because you have to get a subscription now. Shame all my favourite magazines come from the UK - shipping to Canada is horrific so I can only afford to get an occasional one and not a full year subscription to any of them. :)

    1. This issue was actually the last one that went to print sadly. The print copies cost just to much to produce and didn't sell in enough numbers though they have a loyal fan base. The magazine has now moved to being a membership come subscription based and among other things you get the magazine which is still written to the same lush standards but in digital form, though you can always print pages out if you particularly want too. The added advantage is that you also get access to all the previous issues which were produced and are now digitized plus it's not going to cost anymore to subscribe no matter where you live in the world as there are no postage costs.
