    Magpie Reading Club #3: The Happy Reading Club

    Literature lovers gathered for The Happy Reading Club, a special edition of Magpie Reading Club focusing on The Happy Reader’s summer Book of the Season – Virginia Woolf’s classic tome, Mrs Dalloway. A cosy night not unlike the party thrown by Clarissa Dalloway herself, we’re waiting with bated breath to see if any of the subject matters discussed at the session found their way into the upcoming issue of the magazine revolving around the very book.

    At The U Symposium 2 weeks ago, editor and creative director Jop van Bennekom treated us to a preview of Fantastic Man N° 21 – in all its redesigned, 10th anniversary issue glory.

Fast forward a few months, and we’re so honoured to be its first stockists in Singapore – and to have Chapter One as our fourth installation of MagSpy, no less.

    Myles Estey, editor-in-chief of Makeshift

    If there’s one thing the people behind Makeshift definitely do not lack, it’s creativity. From the subject matter of the magazine – creativity in shadow economies – to its recently revamped layout and design, and even the way it is run, everything about Makeshift illustrates its tagline perfectly: “Ingenuity can be found everywhere if you know where to look”.
