Ernest Journal – For the curious and adventurous

When we first heard about the Ernest Journal – a new blog, iPad magazine and biannual printed journal for curious and adventurous gentlefolk, we knew it was going to be right up our street. Described as a “guide for those who appreciate true craftsmanship, who are fascinated by curious histories and eccentric traditions and who care more for timeless style than trends”, the team behind the journal love tactile design and show-stopping photography, such as the images below from iPad Issue One of the journal.

Ernest Journal is brought to you by a passionate troupe of experienced journalists. Editor, Jo Keeling has been a journalist for ten years, launched two independent magazines, written for various BBC magazine titles, as well as the Guardian and the Independent, and worked on an Indian city newspaper. The team, led by Jo, have created a journal 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 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 to fly fish, brew beer in their shed and name all the constellations of the northern hemisphere.

To give you an idea of some of the fantastic content you will find in the journal, the first issue of Ernest has articles about:

  • meeting a community living in humble wooden homes on the edge of Dartmoor;
  • looking inside a converted railway carriage in Dungenes;
  • telling the stories behind old barbering tools;
  • following The King’s Trail, a 400km route across Arctic Sweden;
  • treading in the fateful footsteps of Mawson, Mertz and Ninnis as they endure the worst of Antarctic journeys;
  • meeting the sour beer brewers experimenting with wild yeasts, foraged ingredients and seasoned oak barrels; and
  • embracing the tradition, science of sorcery of curing meat.
