Lodestars Anthology is an independent magazine-meets-journal for curious travellers who long to be inspired, see the world and meet interesting characters along the road. Focusing on one country per issue, Lodestars is a scrapbook of place, a magazine that goes deep into the heart of a location and uncovers its quirks, flavours and splendour, taking a truly personal, beautifully crafted and slow approach to the art of travel journalism.
With stunning photography, thoughtful and beautifully written stories, and original illustrations - produced in Bristol by a small independent press with an eye for detail and a love for print – Lodestars is a thing of beauty in its own right. You’ll probably want to keep it atop a coffee table, or perhaps you’ll want to fill it with scribblings and notes and stow it away in your travel bag for inspiration whilst on the road.
This is our ode to Wales - a celebration of its soaring peaks and dazzling waters, its wilderness, song and lore. Venture here to walk in the footsteps of saints and ancient kings, and to explore landscapes - diverse, dramatic and sublime - destined to fill you with awe. You’ll cross paths with artists, poets and lavender farmers, feast on Welsh cakes and bara brith, wallow in the history, swim in the sea, hike hills, forage, revel and bask in the beauty. All the while knowing that here, there may well be dragons.
