Lodestar: A star used to guide seafaring travellers, most typically Polaris, the North Star. Something that acts as a model or inspiration.
Welcome to Lodestars Anthology, an independent magazine-meets-journal for curious travellers who long to be inspired, see the world and meet interesting characters along the road. 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.
Our first, England-focused magazine hit stands in September 2014 and was followed by our issues on Scotland and Australia in 2015. 2016 saw the release of our publications on Italy, Sweden and Canada while our Japan and New Zealand issues entered the world in 2017. With upcoming magazines dedicated to France and India, 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 embrace your wanderlust.
