Another Escape Volume 5 is available now on loremnotipsum.com and features a conversation with Jeffery Bowman, the co-editor of The Outsiders and The Great Wide Open, discussing the new outdoor culture and its influence on contemporary creative businesses. A collaboration with the DNT (The Norwegian Trekking Association) exploring trail culture in the Norwegian Fjord regions – the waterways, the mountains, and unique landscapes –and the unique relationships that the Norwegian people have forged with their natural environments; an insight into the adventures of a thru-hiker on the North American trails; an exploration into sustainable living in an ecovillage in Wales and their integration of innovative green technology with the traditional smallholding model; and, a feature on young entrepreneur Alec Farmer, the founder of Scottish company Trakke, which uses local heritage material waxed-cotton to create beautiful and functional bags for both outdoor and urban adventures alike. These are amongst some of the exciting stories we have lined up for our new volume.
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.
