The Idler was launched back in 1993 with the intention of providing a dose of fun, freedom and fulfilment in a busy world. We're now a bi-monthly journal, and in every issue you'll find an enthralling mix of interviews, essays on the good life, history, philosophy, arts coverage, beautiful photography and original illustration. You'll find much to laugh at and much useful stuff as well, from Modern Toss to recipes for making bacon and guides to beekeeping. Says Idler fan Dominic West, "The Idler offers me the chance to learn about everything that really matters and a respite from what we are told really matters, like working hard for your boss".
If you’ve ever felt that there’s more to life than boring jobs, then why not join us? The Idler is a cheering read that makes you feel better about life. So take advantage of our subscription offer and study the art of living.
