Issue 9 Available For Pre-Order

29 October 2015

Sometimes we grow taller.
Sometimes we grow shorter.
Sometimes we grow sideways.


Take a moment to catch your breath, and recall the beauty of our Issue 8. It felt good right? Hold your breath, baited, as Issue 9 is just around the corner, and available to pre-order.

Issue 9, "Growing Sideways" will be released on the 9th November (Orders will be shipped straight after issue release on the 9th of November. We will email you and ask you to confirm which cover you would like). Two winners will be picked randomly from our pre-orders to win an original Behind the Scenes Polaroid from one of our Issue 9 cover stories. Lucky you!


The new issue is all about growing sideways. Featuring over 23 boys, tales of friendship, solitude and family, and for the first time we will be feauturing actors. Including photographers Cecilie Harris, Dani Brubaker, Linda Brownlee, Sophie Ebrard, Sophie Mayanne, Olivia Rose and Georgie Wileman among others, we dig even deeper into the world of today's boys, a homeage to our authentic approach in capturing the contemporary young man.

For those of you that still haven't fallen for Issue 8, we also have a bundle available where you get Issue 8 and Issue 9 for only £15, plus shipping. (That's a whole 25% off). So grab your wallets, clear a space on your shelf for Issue 9, and let your imagination run wild on what decorates the pages of Issue 9.

Just in case you need more convincing, here are 5 more fabulous reasons Issue 9 should be a part of your life:
1. It's kinda like chocolate, but better.
2. You can smell the paper. (Inhale deeply, it smells great)
3. It's perfect bedtime reading, and great for rainy Sundays too.
4. Two fabulous boys are on the cover.
5. Being a part of the BBG Family is cool.
