Inspire Adventure, Reconnect with Nature

Life is too short not to fill it with adventure.

Our unique subscription will inspire more memorable experiences and help you reconnect with the natural world whilst you're out there.

Each month you'll receive a new book or journal featuring writers, photographers and illustrators who really 'get' the great outdoors.

Carefully Curated

Every issue comes with a handwritten letter from our founder Tim, sharing the story behind its selection.

Each month is chosen with care.  No twee Country Living chic. No old fashioned, nature conquering macho adventuring. Just great publications packed with outstanding writing, photography and illustration.

Many of our subscribers love it so much they have been with us since the start, here's what they have to say...

"When I can’t be outdoors I can pick up a book and transport myself somewhere else." John H, Wales

"Thank you so much for the time, thought and effort you've put in to deliver treasure through my letterbox every month this past year." Lucy C, London

Inspiring Adventures Since 2017

Our community of inspired adventurers has been growing since 2017.

Each month they enjoy a proper read about the great outdoors and share their thoughts in our Facebook group.

We painstakingly preserve the sense of anticipation, so each month's Ink remains a mystery until it arrives.

They love it...

"I was over the moon when I opened this month's!" Ewan C, Newcastle

"It's a constant source of inspiration and escapism." Hollie H, Wales

This Month's Ink

'Diary of a Young Naturalist' documents a year in the life of autistic teenager Dara McAnulty, as his connection to the natural world helps him deal with the upheaval of moving home and school.

Hailed by Robert Macfarlane and Chris Packham as bright new voice, Dara's intense connection to the natural world reveals it's essential nature to the rest of us.

10 ways nature can help you stay healthy and happy during lockdown

The pandemic provides an opportunity to hear Mother Nature’s voice as she reminds us “I am everywhere. We are all connected.” This is a great time to connect to the nature you never normally notice.
We need to stop treating the natural world as a weekend retreat. Nature is everywhere, we just need to be better at tapping its benefits.

Some doorstep miles are longer than others

A life-affirming, personal reflection on Jennifer's own doorstep mile as she keeps up the her adventures, whilst coping with chronic illness.

How to shit in the woods (or the moors, mountains, seashore etc)

We try not to over-do the poo-puns whilst dealing with topic that puts many people off wild camping, with Tirio Packrafting founder Jason Taylor.
It turns out the most essential kit for wild camping isn't sold in outdoor stores, you're much more likely to find it at your local garden centre...
