Ernest Journal Issue 4


Ernest is a biannual printed journal for curious and adventurous gentlefolk.

It is 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.

Ernest appeals to those of us 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. It is for people who like to whittle.

Ernest is brought to you by a passionate troupe of writers, editors and designers who love tactile design, show-stopping photography and slow journalism.

Issue 4 includes 

  • Listen to mysterious transmissions on short wave radio
  • Delve into the darker side of tintype photography
  • Investigate an anomaly in the North Sea, a micro-nation owned by a tenacious band of radio buccaneers
