This distinctive quarterly is a formulated antidote to our modern, throwaway media and proclaims to be ‘proud to be the last to breaking news’ which it does ‘after the dust has settled’. Each issue carries long-form articles, cartoons and infographics on the leading stories of the past four months, with the cover of each issue designed by a different artist.
Delayed Gratification first appeared in 2011 and is published by the Slow Journalism Company – managed by former Time Out magazine writers Marcus Webb and Rob Orchard whose views run like this: ‘Like the Slow Travel and Slow Food movements, Slow Journalism is dedicated to taking time to produce something of quality. Unlike most media organisations, we don’t spend our days trying to beat Twitter to the chase. Instead, we allow journalists and editors the time to do what they do best: canvass expert opinion, sift evidence, gain perspective and deliver the final analysis on stories.’ Ironically it sells out in no time at Magalleria so if it grabs your fancy don't hang about!
