The Lagos edition will absorb, fascinate and entrance. Featuring some of the biggest names in Nigerian journalism and literature—including an original essay from Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka—the guide offers an intimate portrait of modern Lagos. Experience the extraordinary breadth of this megacity, from its booming arts, music and film industries to its political struggles and poverty. This is an issue that will truly transport readers, challenging stereotypes and offering new perspectives on a city with much to teach the rest of the world.
Stranger’s Guide is themed around a single destination—Russia, the Great Plains, Mexico City or Shanghai. By choosing to concentrate on just one place, Stranger’s Guide will allow us to stop, be still and delve into each location’s complexities. Readers will save these objets d’art on their bookshelves, lend them to friends and continue to page through the issues for years to come. Stranger’s Guide consists of intelligent and luminously written essays by noted writers. Its sleek design emphasizes art and photography.
Each issue is packed with maps, fiction and unconventional travel tips alongside beautiful, serious storytelling that takes you around the world. Our e-newsletter will offer a weekly mini-magazine, examining different themes across cultures. Throughout everything, beautiful, thoughtful narratives will guide you around the world.
“Stranger’s Guide is ideal for its luscious photo spreads, and its features go deep into subcultures that, until now, only the luckiest of strangers might discover.”
“…a one-of-a-kind travel magazine, with a literary vibe that calls to mind Lapham’s Quarterly and McSweeney‘s”
“A stunning magazine”
