Slightly Foxed #49: Spring's Secret Revolution
Slightly Foxed's literary and self-titled magazine has gotten ready for spring in a spectacular way. The issue that's available in our on- and offline shop is the perfect way to begin and end these first climactic, mesmerizing and romantic days of spring. The city is getting warmer, people are moving outside, daffodils are blooming and trees are budding. It's the start of a new year and sitting on a park bench reading Slightly Foxed's literary gems in the shy sun is exactly as fun as it sounds.

It's not your average literary magazine, but has the - albeit quite aggressive - aim to put its reader in motion. Get to changing! Be challenged! Entertainment and humor is all very well, but The Lifted Brow is really to be read with a lifted brow. Learn. Change. Do.
Report: Launch Freeman's with John Freeman

The report and recording of the talk is here.
The new issue is about the Fokionos Negri in Athens. We went to Athens to investigate the new issue on the street itself.
