- following pathways into the past -
Thistle Magazine is an atlas of intricate avenues and rivers within the hearts and limbs of growing souls. We are in the here and now, yet remain intrigued by what ties us to the past. We are interested in the overlooked and unexpected, the long-lost and unknown, the footnotes and etceteras. We seek your art, your words, your dreams and constellations; the memories and visions of your curious heart. Thistle is for those who long to be reminded of the beauty and wonder that we have today. Thistle is for those who long to explore where it comes from.
Founded in 2012, Thistle Magazine was named after the humble and prickly purple flower family. The different types of thistle, like the milk thistle or the melancholy thistle, all have their own uses and nuances. We too are a beautiful and distinguished collection of selves. Rooting from a nostalgic appreciation for history and its place in all of our lives today, our magazine showcases relevant artists and submissions in order to offer an intimate variety to its readers. From the minds of a handful of people around the world, Thistle releases its issue in alignment with the seasons.
