We’re racing through them today. After this morning’s run through the alphabet from G to K, we’re pressing right on with the next clutch of fine independent magazines on Sampler.

At this rate we should just be able to get through all the launch magazines by Thursday, when our first offer goes live. We’re keeping its identity under wraps, but it will be an excellent independent magazine, available at 10% off the cover price and with free shipping to the UK, Europe and USA and subsidised shipping everywhere else.

In short, it’s the best way to buy independent magazines online. Head over to our Sampler site and sign up with your email address to make sure you hear about the offer as soon as it happens. Then sit back and wait for us to send you deals on magazines like this:

Little White Lies


The movie magazine that bases each issue around a different film, Little White Lies is renowned for its artistic response to movies, and its dedication to “truth and movies”

A travel magazine published in both English and Chinese, Lost is the first independent magazine I’ve seen that addresses itself equally to both the domestic Chinese reader, and the international audience. And it’s a beauty.

An incredibly smart publishing concept, Makeshift is made by an editorial team scattered around the globe, who use their local contacts to tell stories of hidden creativity, with ingenious hacks and work-arounds designed to make life a little better.

The magazine that tells stories from a fresh perspective, Matter picks a central theme for each issue and gathers stories that explore it in new and interesting ways.



The magazine made for red heads (and those who appreciate them) MC1R fills its pages with the most beautiful, inspiring and just plain weird auburn adventures.

Modern Design Review


A design magazine that takes an art’s approach to its subject, Modern Design Review responds to the most noteworthy design with fantastic photo shoots and intriguing essays, each issue carefully constructed and paced to completely immerse the reader.

Noble Rot


The magazine that mixes wine with music, Noble Rot is an antidote to stuffy wine writing. Expect tall tales from the world’s vineyards, celebrity interviews, playlists and of course recommendations for wines you need to try.

Oh Comely


A beautifully quiet magazine that tells its stories with whimsical charm, Oh Comely is ideal for anyone who wants to take a break from the noise of everyday life.

The Outpost


A fantastic magazine based in Beirut, The Outpost somehow slips past the censors to deliver an honest but optimistic view of life in the Arab world.
