Cover Story: New Year Edition

New year magazine

Hurtling towards 2014 without a clue where the past year has gone? Relax, The Big Issue has got your back. The New Year Edition looks back on the year that was, provides plenty of great reads and even has a bumper crossword.




Also in this issue:

Patrick Witton recounts the ups, downs and in-betweens of 2013; Koren Helbig reflects on a silly season detox attempt; new columnist, Ricky French, describes the stupefying Australian summer; the Big Issue arts editors deliver their top 10 books, films, DVDs and albums of 2013; and, in ‘Roving Eye’, we present extraordinary images from the People and Planet International Photography Competition.

This edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Sean from Perth. And we have ‘Streetsheet’ contributions from Carlos L, Ken and Owen D in Melbourne; Mark W, Glenn F and Robert in Sydney and Gino in Brisbane. We also have a great photo of Brisbane vendor Brad posing with one of his favourite authors, action/thriller writer Matthew Reilly, at a recent book-signing event.
