Really excited to have received my copy of The Inkling today! 

'This limited edition of twenty-one of our favourite pieces from the last year is a celebration of the essay form. Straddling topics as varied as ash trees, orgasms and the communist politics of Daylight Savings Time, The Inkling 2012/13 is a thought-provoking and enjoyable review of our first twelve months. Featuring original pen and ink drawings by young British illustrator Sophia O'Connor, the Annual is printed on high quality matte paper with an eye-catching embossed cover in a bright yellow mustard. We think you'll agree, good writing has never looked so smart.'
