The Idler is undeniably old-fashioned, a publication that celebrates independence and liberty and scoffs at the idea of hard work. This excellently presented publication features an eclectic mix of diversions – revealing and fascinating conversations with persons of note, cultured and intelligent essays on all manner of things – though each edition has a central theme – and extracts from excellent works of fiction from throughout history.
