Cover Story: Summer Edition

The thongs, sunnies and eskies have all come out for summer; and so has The Big Issue Summer Edition! We take a lazy warm-weather journey from happy dogs on the beach, to rising sea in Kiribati, to sheltering from scorcher’s in Mt Isa. So kick back, relax and read away.

Also in this issue…

Paddy Garritty digs deep, into his garden; Michelle Mclaren discovers the therapeutic benefits of setting your favourite books free; Nina Butler extols the virtues of awkward conversations with kids; and in Roving Eye, Francis Reiss gives a glimpse of his life through the lens.

Starring in the Vendor Profile this edition is Ruth in Adelaide. We have Streetsheet contributions from Helen in Sydney, Gary S in Melbourne, Adrian and Jai J in Sydney, De in Tasmania and Pat in Perth. We also have a great photo of Melbourne vendor Erik selling, rain hail or shine. But mostly rain.
