This winter we’re celebrating all things Time & Travel. From Winston Churchill holding secret cabinet meetings in the disused Down Street tube station to the American Eagle flying high in Grosvenor Square, allegedly constructed out of sheet metal salvaged from the B52 bombers of World War II. We love delving into our neighbourhood’s curious and quirky history.
You might have noticed three cover images below my photo. The first is for The Covent Gardener, the second for The Mayfarer, and the third I would like to introduce you to is The City Courant, which celebrates the magnificence of the City of London.
Why a third you might ask? Well, two people are to blame: John Foley, Common Councillor for the Ward of Farringdon Within (also a resident in the City), for planting the seed and telling me the most fabulous stories about the City which had my head spinning; and artist Stephanie Hofmann, for creating these utterly gorgeous covers.
Look closer at the characters and you will see a story woven throughout each. The Covent Gardener cover has the characters travelling home after a night out in Mayfair, The Mayfarer shows a couple returning from a fabulous evening at the Royal Opera House, and the City crowd… well, they’re in their own category all together. Issue 1 of The City Courant is out now, featuring dragons, sheep, aldermen, Romans and more.
Each of the three magazines has its own unique identity and content in every single story, no matter how big or small, and all the illustrations are commissioned by us.
