The Perfect Christmas Gift!

8 December 2012

As you know we have recently released our 4th Boys by Girls issue "A Place Called Youth" which is available on news-stands now! See stockists here. As our proudest publication yet, ‘A Place Called Youth’ balances on the edge between a magazine and a book and includes 24 stunning boys, feature the photography of 6 established female photographers and delves into the topics of youth and innocence. Mixing portraiture and fashion, the issue is heavy with it's thick, uncoated paper and 160 pages of beautiful photography. With original artwork, poetry and writing, this magazine stands out from the crowd.

While the issue is available for the first time in shops, we wanted to make it known that copies are also available from the web shop as with our previous issues. We understand that not everyone would be able to get to one of the many stores selling "A Place Called Youth", and so to make sure everyone gets a piece of the new issue’s goodness, we have kept a number of copies specifically for online orders. As always, we are able to ship both to the UK and internationally, meaning that all of our lovely readers will be able to get their hands on one.

Go on treat yourselves! Or someone else even… we think that the issue would be the perfect Christmas gift for family or friends, so make sure that you order as soon as possible to guarantee delivery before Christmas! Find our online shop here.

Should you want an extra special gift, you can also enter our competition to win a signed copy of the issue or even signed original prints. Here's how to enter that competition that we have called "A Boys by Girls Love Affair".
