Lost in London is an independent magazine all about the natural world in the city, and was co-created by myself and the designer Tina Smith.
When we launched it we had no idea just how much it would resonate with its new audience of readers: the magazine was recently listed in the Guardian’s top 10 quirky guides about London.
We make Lost in London with the help of many other writers and artists, and we publish whenever we have enough resource to do so.
Our first book, Lost in London: adventures in the city’s wild outdoors, was published by Portico in March 2013, and is inspired by the landscape of the city; its ancient woodlands, rivers and heathlands.
Written as a travelogue, it is a collection of stories of unscripted places, creatures and characters that live in the gaps of the urban environment.
