Ernest | Issue 11

Regular price $13.00

Healing waters in the Westfjords; Java’s volcanic rituals and industry; in conversation with Stanley Donwood; nature and artifice on St Kilda; a new era of bio-design; the allure of pylons; Hvaldmir the Russian spy whale; seeking the wild west in the wild east.

Ernest is a journal for inspiring minds. It's made for those who value surprising and meandering journeys, fuelled by curiosity rather than adrenaline and guided by chance encounters. It is a repository for wild ideas, curious artefacts and genuine oddities, replete with tales of pioneers, invention and human obsession. Ernest is founded on the principles of slow journalism. We value honesty, integrity and down-to-earth storytelling - and a good, long read every now and then.

Issue 11 includes:

ECHOES OF THE EIGER
Revisiting his father’s pioneering route up the north face of the Eiger – famous for being one of the world’s hardest rock climbs – Mike MacEacheran ruminates on the power of memory and mountains, and why we push ourselves to the ends of the Earth in pursuit of the unknown.

NATURE & ARTIFICE
Ministry of Defence domes, tanks and radar towers may seem incongruous with the wild and craggy landscape of St Kilda, but as Bethany Rigby discovers, a military presence can often have beneficial consequences for conservation in remote areas.

WILD EAST, WILD WEST
Trigger fingers at the ready, the sound of a whipcrack ringing in his ears, Nick Hunt seeks traces of the Old West in unlikely corners of Europe.

A NEW ERA OF BIO-DESIGN
Our material consumption has long been out of control. But could developments in biodesign be part of the solution, bringing us closer to a sci-fi 1960s vision of a sustainable ‘Spaceship Earth’?

IN WORSHIP OF THE HUM
Pylons have radically transformed our landscapes for almost a century. Gareth E. Rees explores the often-haunting symbolism of the metal monoliths that power our world.

RIVER OF TIME
Mudlarking on the Thames

TECHNICOLOUR CHALKSCAPES
Radiohead album cover artist, Stanley Donwood and his block colour landscapes of Southern England.

HEALING WATERS IN THE WESTFJORDS
Iceland’s oldest geological outcrop – known for its runic sorcerers and herbalists, fathomless fjords and weather-beaten mountains, hot pools and cold water surf scene.

REFLECTIONS ON THE RIVER TEIFI
Jack Smylie Wild meanders to the source of Afon Teifi, weaving keen observation with childhood recollection, while sounding a clarion call to love and protect our waterways.

OH HELLO, HVALDIMIR
A cetacean spy or therapy whale? Joly Braime gets to know this big-hearted beluga who just wants to be friends with humans.
 

Ernest is a biannual printed journal for curious and adventurous gentlefolk. It is a guide for those who appreciate true craftsmanship and the care that goes into making, who are fascinated by curious histories and eccentric traditions and who care more for timeless style than trends. It is a periodical of substance created for folk who love to build fires, embark on road trips, camp under a canopy of stars and run full pelt into the sea. Ernest appeals to those of us who appreciate a craft gin cocktail as much as a hearty one-pot supper, who love the grain of wood and the smell of paper, who’d like to learn how fly fish, brew beer in their shed and name all the constellations of the northern hemisphere. It is for people who like to whittle.
