The Happy Reader is a new magazine published by Penguin Classics in collaboration with the creators of the award-winning Fantastic Man. For avid readers and the uninitiated alike, it is a chance to reengage with classic literature and to stay inspired and entertained.

The concept of the magazine is excitingly simple: the first half is a long-form interview with a notable book fanatic and the second half explores one Penguin Classics title from an array of surprising and invigorating angles, through fashion, art, lifestyle, history, film and more.

The Happy Reader never patronizes, nor does it seek to baffle its audience with literary name-dropping or pedantry, wearing its bookish curiosity with a playful lightness of touch, delighting in the potential for whimsy and humour.

The magazine is centred on the concept of ‘precious print’, as embodied by Penguin Classics and Fantastic Man. It explores the myriad advantages of the printed word and image: beautiful typography, high dwell time, the matte charm of ink on paper, the calming luxury of being ‘offline’. The magazine is a design object in and of itself.

In this issue:
The cover star for the winter issue of The Happy Reader is the Canadian pop genius Grimes whose new album Art Angels is one of the most important (and popular) records of the winter, and whose expansive reading habits take in everything from Dune to Dostoyevsky.

The book of the season, meanwhile, is Au Bonheur des Dames, Émile Zola’s extraordinary tale of love, Paris and retail, with department store nostalgia, the in-store music of fashion boutiques, dreamy shopfloor images, an interview with an anti-consumerism legend, and much more.
