Elementum Journal Edition Five is out now. In Edition Five we explore the theme of ‘hearth’ – the places that gather us in and the routes that guide us home. Contributors include Sara Baume (A Line Made By Walking), Jim Crumley (The Nature of Autumn), Nicola Davies (A First Book of Nature), Stephen Moss (Wild Hares & Hummingbirds), Helen Scales (Eye of the Shoal), and Raynor Winn (The Salt Path), with illustrations and art from Georgie Bennett, Lucy Eldridge, Neil Gower, Catherine Hyde and Jenny McLaren.
Elementum is an independent literary journal with a focus on nature writing and visual storytelling. We commission work from both established and emerging writers and artists, actively seeking out voices that speak from differing perspectives and that offer the reader new insights. Bringing together the scientist’s findings and the artist’s response, the ecologist’s observation and the writer’s reflection, we ask questions as well as seek to answer them, retaining a sense of wonder at the unseen and unknowable.
By exploring our connection to nature through stories of transformation and startling imagery, we hope we will better understand our place, our responsibilities and the possibilities open to us. Elementum is printed in the UK on high quality uncoated paper and is designed to give the reader space to reflect and absorb ideas, unharried by advertising.
Guided by a different theme in each edition, Elementum is published twice a year.
This edition is 160 pages, limp notch bound for durability and printed in full colour using vegetable inks on FSC-approved uncoated paper with coated paper interludes.
