London: Slightly Foxed Ltd, 2019. Seren Bell (cover illustration). No. 64. Softcover. New. B/W illustrations. Bibliography. 15 x 21 cm. 95 pp. Item #11428

The independent-minded quarterly that combines good looks, good writing and a personal approach. Slightly Foxed introduces its readers to books that are no longer new and fashionable but have lasting appeal. Good-humoured, unpretentious and a bit eccentric, it’s more like a well-read friend than a literary magazine.
