We were recently contacted by independent publisher’s Luma Works about their new self-funded magazine called Storytime. I could not possibly attempt to better the words hey used to describe the magazine, so here is what they had to say:
Storytime features classic children’s tales, including fairy tales, poems, folk tales, fables and myths & legends, all written in a fun & accessible way. Our aim is to encourage kids to fall in love with stories and improving their literacy. What really helps to sets the magazine apart is the wonderful illustrations we specially commission. Every month we select talented illustrators from all over the world to create beautiful, vibrant and exciting illustrations to really bring these classic tales to life – there’s no other kids’ magazine out there that commissions so many illustrators on a regular basis.
Over the past year we have commissioned illustrations from over 75 wonderful artists from across the globe, and with a readership of 20,000, that’s a great platform for their work. We have a database of over 550 illustrators which we regularly update. We’re always delighted to receive new submissions as well!
We’re keen to support illustrators with Storytime, and we’d love it if the illustration community could get behind us and help spread the word about us too! We are now offering a special discount for illustrators who want to subscribe to Storytime – either to read with their kids, or simply to enjoy the gorgeous work from our brilliant artists each month.

It is a splendid project with a fervent focus on quality illustration. The list of talent is incredible, which also happens to includes many previous Lounge features, such as Alex Wilson, Aurore Damant, and Gaia Bordicchia. Deffinitly one to pick up for your children (but really yourself).
