Lodestars Anthology Issue 7 (Japan Revisited) is here. Journey to Japan and discover a land of tea and tropics, wabi-sabi and wonder. A place where symbolism abounds and nothing is without purpose. For here you’ll find an ancient and powerful landscape that has shaped history yet still dictates the rhythms of modern life. There are illuminated capitals and pockets of untouched wilderness, both marked by a deep sense of spirituality. Art flourishes, design inspires and others come first. May the light never dim on the Land of the Rising Sun.
Made up of a collection of guides, interviews, essays, photographs and illustrations, the focus is on capturing colour and verve. By looking at a destination’s history, charm, quirks, secret corners and fascinating residents, Lodestars Anthology aims to encapsulate the essence of a country in a very fresh way.
Lodestars Anthology is an independent magazine-meets-journal for curious travellers who long to be inspired, see the world and meet interesting characters along the road. Lodestars Anthology is focusing on one country per issue, it is a scrapbook of place, getting to the heart of a location and uncovering its quirks, charm and splendour. Basically, we’re a publication all about creativity, travel and exploration – one you’ll ideally like to keep atop a coffee table. Or filled with scribblings and safely stored in your suitcase. We hope they fuel your love of adventure, life and all the people, flavours, destinations and ideas this world has to offer. So go on. Pack a bag, hit the road and start your adventure. Lodestar is a star used to guide seafaring travellers, most typically Polaris, the North Star. Something that acts as a model or inspiration.
