Not many magazines can put a bum hole on the cover and make it look beautiful. But then again, what is beauty? The new issue of Ladybeard wants to pick apart the complicated relationship we have with what our culture finds beautiful.

As with their enormously popular previous issues, they’ve spoken to people who shrug off the mainstream ideal, to present a world of eye-opening, at times challenging, but always optimistically illuminating narratives. We sent their ‘Mind’ issue out on Stack in 2016, and this is also a must-read for anyone interested in fresh, radical feminism. Check it out and grab your copy on Sampler.


In this issue:

— Beauty defined by blind and partially-sighted people
— Tracking down an Instagram obsession
— Queer femmes explain their own meanings of ‘feminine’ beauty
— How to reconcile beauty with horror in war photography
— An interview with Chris Kraus, author of I Love Dick
— And a timeline of ugliness (below)

This is the highly-anticipated third issue of Ladybeard, and Sampler is the only place you can order it for 10% off and free shipping to the US, UK and Europe, and subsidised shipping everywhere else. But we have limited copies available and this will likely sell out!
