Frankie Magazine – Issue 85
frankie magazine is a national bi-monthly based in Australia, aimed at women (and men) looking for a magazine that’s as smart, funny, sarcastic, friendly, cute, rude, arty, curious and caring as they are. We cover design, art, photography, fashion, travel, music, craft, interiors and real-life stories – we aim to surprise and delight readers with every turn of our beautifully matte pages, and have a good old laugh while doing so.
if you’re wondering why there’s some extra pep in our steps this morning, it’s probably because issue 85 is officially on sale in australia – hurrah! inside, you’ll find all manner of things to keep your eyes and noggin happy, like some gaudy wedding ‘chariots’ direct from southern india; a crochet artist doing things a little differently; and enough cuddly cushions to build one epic pillow fort. also within its pretty pages: four young and talented playwrights currently bursting onto australia’s theatre scene. we take a trip to alaska to meet the locals, and visit a ‘boozy bakery’ in melbourne’s west. (you’ll find a history of aerobics – complete with leotards, astronauts and hollywood royalty – tucked away in between, as well.) some frankie friends tell us how they look after their brains; others ponder the public holiday we really need. plus, there’s a non-scary guide to creating political change; a road test of face masks, good, bad and goopy; and a fashion line inspired by childhood wobblies. all that, on top of the usual frankie good times – what more could you need?
