hear ye, hear ye! a brand-new issue of frankie is now on sale in australia and there are loads of wondrous things between its covers. a dame who’s bringing deep-sea exploration to the masses, for one, plus another turning discarded festival tents into nice-looking bags. also on the menu: a pint-size crochet museum standing deep in the californian desert, a nifty guide to op-shopping like a gosh-darn pro, first-person accounts of some major world events, and regular words that actually came from people’s names (see: nachos, cardigan and saxophone). there’s an ode to motherhood in all its glory and grossness, and a bunch of bath ‘recipes’ using natural ingredients. and of course, we have our usual shedload of lovely photography, pretty arty-crafty stuff, music, travel and mildly hilarious opinion pieces. enjoy!
