Actual Size Magazine

If you’ve ever browsed through a ‘women’s magazines’ section and realised there’s little there that interests you, then Actual Size might be able to remedy that! This thoughtful, independent magazine aims bring women (and men) interesting content outside the perimeters of the usual women’s mag, showcasing inspiring individuals and their equally inspiring careers, along with amazing locations, art, food, culture and creativity. Refreshingly, it does this without judgement or comment on lifestyles, body types or appearance!


The latest issue of Actual Size (Issue 5) includes a wide range of topics, from fascinating matchbox art, to the fight to save Saltdean Lido, and an article in defence of physical music in a world gone digital. The cover art was designed by Danielle of Brand13, and the magazine features an interview with her. Issue 5 also contains articles about:

  • Guides to Venice and Geneva for the travel-curious.
  • The virtues of recycling to create home decorations.
  • The craft of furoshiki (Japanese fabric wrapping).
  • The life and legacy of Nico.


If Actual Size sounds like a magazine that appeals to you, you can pick up the latest issue in store now. Also – we stock back issues! Find issue 1 – 5 online and in-store.
