If you’re wondering why there’s some extra pep in our steps this morning, it’s probably because issue 85 is officially on sale in Australia – hurrah! Inside, you’ll find all manner of things to keep your eyes and noggin happy, like some gaudy wedding ‘chariots’ direct from southern India; a crochet artist doing things a little differently; and enough cuddly cushions to build one epic pillow fort. Also within its pretty pages: four young and talented playwrights currently bursting onto Australia’s theatre scene. We take a trip to Alaska to meet the locals, and visit a ‘boozy bakery’ in Melbourne’s west. (You’ll find a history of aerobics – complete with leotards, astronauts and Hollywood royalty – tucked away in between, as well.) Some frankie friends tell us how they look after their brains; others ponder the public holiday we really need. Plus, there’s a non-scary guide to creating political change; a road test of face masks, good, bad and goopy; and a fashion line inspired by childhood wobblies. All that, on top of the usual frankie good times – what more could you need?
