Stumbling across new magazines that keep you glued to every page start to finish is pretty rare these days, but a local discovery at The Spoonbill & Sugartown bookstore


led me to The Great Discontent
The triannual print publication (because everything comes in threes right?), is a tightly curated bundle of inspiring conversations among a myriad of creatives. For issue three, these included musician Iron & Wine, Alison Sudol, Clayton Cubitt, and Tei Shi. So you don’t have to flick through the entire magazine (although it’s strongly recommended!), here are our favourite quotes from ‘The Possibility Issue’:
