A little while ago I received a lovely email from Imogen of Harvest Magazine. Harvest is a new independent literary publication that features emerging writers, poets and artists, as well as a sprinkling of more established creative types. They’re based in Melbourne and are passionate about great writing, good design and sustainable publishing.

I am a little sheepish that is has taken me ages to finally get around to having a good look at Harvest and featuring it on the site… but finally the day is here :) Harvest is a beautiful publication – the content is thoughtful and carefully curated, and the layout is crisp, classic and uncluttered. All this, printed locally on lovely thick, creamy pages of 100% post-consumer recycled paper. Above all its so great to see emerging and established Melbourne creatives collaborating to produce such fine results!

Harvest will be published quarterly – the Spring issue is being compiled currently and should hit shelves soonish I imagine (no definitive dates on their website I’m afraid…). RRP – $15.00, and its available from all good Melbourne bookshops. (You can also buy a copy direct I believe if you contact them through the website).

here are some pretty page spreads / artwork from Issue One…
