New independent publishing company Iceberg Press has purchased The Simple Things magazine from Future plc.
Iceberg Press was co-founded in 2014 by three friends and colleagues – Lisa Sykes, Guy Foreman and David Parker – who have more than 60 years publishing expertise between them on magazine brands both big and small, including Country Living, Good Housekeeping, House Beautiful, Prima and Coast. And Lisa is the editor of The Simple Things, so knows the magazine inside out.
Everyone working on The Simple Things is thrilled to have an exciting new home, and delighted to be able to offer subscriptions once again (these had been on hold for a couple of months until the purchase was complete).
The Simple Things will remain focused on ‘taking time to live well’, an ethos that has been at the core of the magazine since the first issue in September 2012. We will continue to write for readers who want to slow down occasionally, simplify their life and remember what matters most, covering eating, growing, making, living, escaping and wellbeing for the cookbook generation. So, expect ideas on how to feed friends and family well, learn something new, explore the outdoors and enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done.
As Editor and co-founder of Iceberg Press, Lisa Sykes, says, we like to think of The Simple Things as a handbook for happiness.
