Another Escape Volume 3 is out now. Our theme evolved and branched out; it led us to find a great breadth of fascinating and passionate people, working in a diverse range of practices and places – from a driftwood kayak builder, to a traditional Korean papermaker, to wilderness-foraging perfumers, to charcoal makers, to bamboo bicycle builders. We sought to produce a closely curated yet varied collection of stories. Where one story ends another begins, picking up and interweaving common threads to draw our readers through the publication. In our new and very exciting (if we do say so ourselves) volume of Another Escape we delve deep into the various worlds of the characters that we feature. We learn of the history of Inuit kayak building from a boat builder in the Pacific Northwest. We are taken into the hills of Northern California with a unique team crafting fragrances from the natural world. And we learn of one woman’s journey to keep her Korean heritage alive in the form of Hanji papermaking. These are just a few of the many exciting stories and articles that we have lined up for Another Escape Volume 3.
Another Escape is an independently published bi-annually magazine. We are inspired by individuals being creatively ambitious and inquisitively investigating what inspires and excites them. We all get those moments in life when we experience, if only for a second, something that utterly inspires us; we want to be a musician, a dancer, a bee keeper, a circus performer. It may be the overwhelming desire to collect new experiences, travel, or learn a new skill or language. We can take away from these energetic individuals fuel for our own motivation, and Another Escape looks to tap and bottle this invigorating subject matter, and subsequently encourage others to actively explore their own aspirations. We are big fans of the printed word (and image), and wanted to create a well designed tactile object that could slot onto your bookcase, sit on the coffee table or be slung into a rucksack.
