Old Light is an ever evolving project featuring the work of artists, illustrators, writers, poets, designers and human beings who stand out in a society overburdened by faux-humility and false beauty.

Old Light #1 is a compilation of illustration, lyrics, real life experiences and embarrassing lists exploring the inescapable role of unrequited love and crushes in the life of girls and women.
Featuring arty contributions from award-winning illustrator Hannah Simpson, the off beat editor of Dry Mag, Daisy Davidson and literary goddess, Jo Davey amongst kind-of sickening tributes to Quentin Tarantino from Charlotte Prichard, lyrics from London Straight Edge's most perceptive participant, Kai Stone, reminiscences from Rosie Wolfenden of Tatty Devine, creative musings from post-punk queen Gina Davidson and countless words from myself, Emily Prichard, regarding the thorny barbs of empty adoration.
