  • Issue Eight of Ernest Journal, a treasury of artefacts, specimens and curious tales. A smörgåsbord of photography, apparel and wild food.

    NAMED WINDS - Our named winds have whipped up deserts, rained ‘blood’ and plagued people to insanity.

    A BITTER HISTORY - Tracing the humble bottle of bitters’ journey from the medicine cabinet to the cocktail bar.

    NEWSPAPERS AT THE ENDS OF THE EARTH - Expedition ‘newspapers’ momentarily lifted the spirits of lonely and isolated polar explorers.

  • Ernest biannual printed journal is for curious and adventurous gentlefolk. It is a guide for those who appreciate true craftsmanship and the care that goes into making, who are fascinated by curious histories and eccentric traditions and who care more for timeless style than trends. 

    It is a periodical of substance created for folk who love to build fires, embark on road trips, camp under a canopy of stars and run full pelt into the sea. Ernest appeals to those of us who appreciate a craft gin cocktail as much as a hearty one-pot supper, who love the grain of wood and the smell of paper, who’d like to learn how fly fish, brew beer in their shed and name all the constellations of the northern hemisphere. It is for people who like to whittle.



Ernest Journal Issue 8 has a rating of 5.0 stars based on 3 reviews.
