Slightly Foxed Quarterly, Spring 2021

London: Slightly Foxed Ltd, 2021. Niki Bowers (cover art). No. 69. Softcover. NEW. B/W illustrations. Bibliography. 15 x 21 cm. 95 pp. Item #14506

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.
