Issue 106 January 2017

hanks to everyone who read and wrote for Now Then in 2016. It was a good year for us, but we’re hoping to do even better this year.

If you have something to say, or just want to give us some feedback on the direction of the mag, please get in touch. It’s what keeps us on our toes.

This month we are online-only, with a Best of 2016 art feature, picking out some of our favourite pieces of art from last year.

See you back in print next month.
