We’ve dubbed it the Digital Decade, the era when we started to view the world – and ourselves – through smartphones. So, who better to be our cover star than the queen of memes, Grumpy Cat? After all, cats owned the internet this decade, and none more so than Grumpy.

The 2010s saw a huge change in the way we consume entertainment, from streaming services to podcasts and e-readers. This edition will remind you of all the decade’s best moments, as our arts editors bring you the Ultimate 2010s Entertainment Guide – they give us their picks for best books, films and songs (check out our Spotify playlist:, as well as those binge-worthy shows and podcasts you might’ve missed.
