The Idler

Spent some time today flicking through the tenth-anniversery edition of the sporadically-published Idler magazine. Now in book format, the Ider stands up for the virtues of laziness, featuring a collection of witty articles and interviews.

The magazine is well presented, with neat colour pages. According to the editorial, it is, and always has been, a non-profit magazine, published with the hard work of a few individuals. They are, however, looking to make it a bit more commercial. The magazine recently published Crap Towns, timed nicely for the run up to Christmas, an idea which initially started as a feature for their website. In a similar vein, they've recently started a crap jobs project - well worth a read.
