The European Review of Books – Issue 04
The European Review of Books is a magazine of culture and ideas in English and in a writer’s own tongue.
The European Review of Books is a new magazine of culture and ideas, in English and beyond. It’s distinctive layered design (rip its pages open!) grabbed the eyes of the magazine world when Issue One appeared in June 2022. It featured writing from Ali Smith, Adania Shibli, Rem Koolhaas and more.
Issue Four of the ERB is blue – sky blue – and within its covers are some first-rate forays and unlikely excavations.
Ali Smith on Virginia Woolf. George Blaustein on Schwarzeneggerology. The most important unreviewed books of our times (all four volumes of Xi Jinping's The Governance of China), reviewed. You also won't want to miss Issue Four's inquiries into peripheral Europe, Paleolithic art, ancient mining practices and medieval darlings. Nor its stories about Jim Jarmusch, a Polish graveyard, a Greek island, Italian post-pandemic life and Ukrainian longing. Plus: some truly bad writing advice.
All with the ERB’s remarkable print design: turn the pages to read, but cut the pages for a second layer of depth and digression.
192 pages, French fold binding design.
