The Passenger: Greece (Europa Editions 2020)

Neil's picture

The Passenger is a new journal, started in 2020, and publishes 3 or 4 titles a year, each featuring a different country, city or region. It's a little like Granta in that it carries new writing, photography and art, and reportage in each issue, mostly by local writers. It's always very nicely produced, with textured cover, generous format, well reproduced photography and lively design. I loved the Greece issue. It covers issues like a controversial mayor, the rise of Greek oligarchs, rebetika music, the state of the classic Greek taverna, and carries statistics and infographics on the current state of the nation. An excellent series.
