No-one was more upset than us about the collapse of our free monthly print titles, which ran for nearly seven years.
In fact, for the hell of it, take a butchers at the first ever print cover we published back in February 2013. Those were the days, right?
And yet such is the reality of independent online cultural publishing in 2020. Like many small and micro businesses, Covid-19 has not helped matters in the slightest.
However, despite zero resources, happily we have many thousands of readers and social media followers as we approach our 10th birthday this autumn.
Expect a friendly mix of food, arts, culture and people, highlighting tasty nuggets you may have missed as well as fresh mailshot-only tips and articles. And we might chuck in an interesting link or two to our sister sites Gasholder, Leytonstoner, Below The River and Weekendr.
The forthcoming issue, out this Friday, is a food special: well, it is #EatOutToHelpOut season, after all. And also: the all-new Anima e Cuore has landed in the neighbourhood. Woop.
So if this sounds like your cup of tea, sign up in the box below this feature (if you’re on a smartphone), or on the bottom right (if you’re reading on a laptop) – and get a damn good read every Friday morning.
