Ernest | Issue 7

Sale price $9.00 Regular price $13.00

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.

BREAD MAKING IN SPACE

A team of engineers, scientists and food researchers are striving to bring the simple pleasures of bread back to homesick astronauts. Their mission: to bake crumb-free bread in space. 

THE EVOLUTION OF SEA CHARTS

Today we rely on GPS devices to navigate, but it wasn’t so long ago that nautical charts told of coastal topography, off-lying islets and even mythical islands – and of course, guided us safely through the high seas. We navigate the history of nautical cartography, from tactile maps to medieval charts. 

ROUTE 500

Journey with photographer Sarah Mason as she finds a tonic for her anxiety in the wild landscapes of Scotland’s north coast.

MAPPING ANTARCTIC WOMEN

Women have played a vital role in shaping our understanding of the Antarctic, but their role has not been celebrated on continental maps. Humanitarian Carol Devine set out to change that; to create a map with all the places named after females on it, and in turn discover the history of the frozen continent. 

THE KEARTON BROTHERS

Meet the Victorian duo who developed the photographic hide through a series of absurd devices.

PRINCE PHILIP: VOLCANO GOD

Travel to the Melanesian island of Tanna where residents worship Prince Philip as a volcano God.

THE CLOSET OF SIR KENELM DIGBY

Sir Kenelm Digby: courtier, swordsman, alchemist and home brewer. We explore a life less ordinary. 

 

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.
