Ernest Journal Issue 5


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 5 includes 

  • Stand aside Esperanto: explore the unruly world of made-up languages
  • Conduct your own experiments with time using the theories of JW Dunne
  • Meet the small but dedicated cryonics community, operating in the high-tech laboratories of Arizona to the sheds of Peacehaven in Sussex
  • Learn how to make your own wild first aid kit
  • Meet the man capturing every RNLI lifeboat station in Britain using Victorian photographic techniques
  • Explore the geological map that changed the world
  • Seek simple shelter in the mountain bothies of northwest Scotland
  • Set sail with New Dawn Traders as they establish slow cargo routes across the Atlantic
  • Tuck into the history of the vindaloo
  • Pick up the path of a modern-day journeyman, who plies his trade on the open road in return for bed and board
  • Explore the practice of solargraphy, a long exposure technique that records the path of our sun
  • Finally, we team up with experimental flavorists Bompas & Parr to reimagine the strange, unsettling, yet magical recipes of Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, founder of the Futurist movement.
