Issue 2

Phox Pop magazine Issue 2 is 96 (advertising-free) pages of stories about thinkers, seekers, makers, and doers.

Inside we examine:

  • The history of made-up musical instruments, and personifications of nature in Nordic folktales.
  • The on-again, off-again relationship between Britain’s first astronaut and her interstellar attire, and the scientist who’s spent 50 years studying “the most remarkable biological phenomena in the world”.
  • Plus, discover a cabinet-maker in a hospital garden, crystal formations in urban places, and find out what links pasta and hipsters.
