Another Escape Volume 6 is out now and we visit a wooden ski maker who has combined his passion for woodworking and love for the mountain, and explore both cartography and artistry in ski map making. We travel to Iceland to understand the Icelandic affection for their natural environment and how living in a land of extremes inspires a considered way of life; we travel out to ancient lava fields with a geophysicist to better understand the island’s volatile activity. We take a look at the qualities of natural fibres and the craftsmanship involved to make high-performance outerwear garments. We wrap up warm and venture out into chilly landscapes with four outdoor practitioners to understand how they stay motivated in the colder months; we step out onto the Cornish coast to understand how foraging, eating seasonal and reintroducing forgotten foods can keep us tethered to the natural world across the seasons.
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.
