The Late-Victorian Little Magazine

Most late-Victorian little magazines were published from London, but elsewhere in Britain relevant journals were also produced, often functioning as the periodical organs of localised organisations that wanted to engage with the local communities in which they operated. The Arts & Crafts journal the Quest (1894–96), issued by the Birmingham Guild of Handicraft, ‘resisted any structural differentiation between the worlds of production and consumption, preferring the unified ideal of a community of producers meeting common needs through mutual cooperation’. Outside of England, writers of the budding Celtic Revival wrote for several little magazines, but few notable little magazines were set up before the early twentieth century. One notable exception was the Edinburgh-based Evergreen (1895–96), perhaps the late Victorian era’s best example of a conceptually integrated periodical, this time not only inspired by a local variant of the collaborative spirit characterising the Arts and Crafts journals, but also meant to exemplify an advocated ‘organic’ unity for the city where its producers lived and worked, and from there for Scotland and ‘North Britain’ at large.
