Thesiger's Silence The Cold Issue
A 208-page monster of a publication celebrating all things cold. From dog-sledding in the Yukon territory in Canada to driving heavily modified four-wheel-drive trucks across Iceland’s mountainous interior in the winter, we celebrate the joy of being out in sub-zero temperatures, whether that’s relaxing in a hot-tub, fat-biking in the snow, building an igloo, choosing expedition clothing, running Arctic ultra-marathons, reading inspirational books, cooking Nordic recipes and much more.
Printed on high-quality 170gsm uncoated paper wrapped in a 350gms cover, there are no adverts either, just high-quality writing and beautiful photography.
The COLD Issue is, like all of our ARCHIVE Editions, limited to 1,000 copies and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
Thesiger's Silence Adventure Magazines
Wilfred Thesiger was in the midst of his second crossing of Arabia’s Empty Quarter in 1947 when he stopped in the Jilida area in the south-west corner of the country and wrote: “It was very still with the silence which we have driven from our world.”
Haunted by that line for decades, I think it’s more important than ever to take the time to search for that same silence and while this might seem an impossible task in an era defined by its relentless noise, non-stop news and creeping industrialisation, those places are still there. They just take a bit more finding.
Please join Carlton as he travel to some of the world’s most desolate and inhospitable places on foot and by bicycle, canoe, and four-wheel-drive in search of Thesiger’s spirit for his magazine.
All lovingly documented in print. Just like Wilfred did, half a century ago.
