Avaunt is an award-winning journal dedicated to documenting and celebrating human endeavour, from the wildest, highest, deepest, coldest and hottest corners of the Earth and beyond.
Each issue provides the chance to feel the adventure in your hands and read exclusive features. Featuring an extremely high calibre of editorial and photographic contributors, Avaunt magazine is unlike anything else on the market – appealing to those interested not only in global exploration, but also exploration of the mind. With expansive editorial range the magazine assembles a stellar cast of writers – the world’s most authoritative figures in science, philosophy, technology and literature – punctuated by accessible and timeless examples of adventurous fashion and some of the most pioneering photographers working today.
As ever, Avaunt is dedicated to documenting and celebrating the pioneers chipping away at the unknown, adding to our knowledge of ourselves and the universe we inhabit. Our fifth issue – featuring a special report on Bolivia’s landlocked navy, a fashion story on Ireland’s rugged Atlantic coast and a chilling essay on the effect of digital media on society – sees the magazine’s award-winning team collaborate with some of the best writers and photographers working today to offer insight and inspiration.
The fourth issue of Avaunt is our largest and most diverse yet, and as ever is driven by a fascination with endeavour across adventure, style, innovation and culture. From a fashion shoot in the Icelandic tundra to exploring underwater Mexican caves, we’ve covered a lot of ground in this issue, collaborating with some the best writers, photographers and illustrators along the way.
