BOLT EDITIONS

THE LOOP


A magazine for curious children aged 8 - 12 
that inspires making and critical thinking.



Suggested reading in
‘100 of the BEST INDIE MAGAZINES from
around the World’ published by Prestel.  





In 2011 ELEANOR MEREDITH and I founded
the small press BOLT EDITIONS. We then
developed the concept, commissioned and
art directed the illustrators, worked with
editors, authors, graphic designers,
junior reporters and volunteers to create
The Loop from 2012 - 2015.

The idea behind The Loop was essentially
to create a newspaper for children
that are a bit too young to read a newspaper.

The Loop was stocked in over ten countries. 




Every leaf in this magazine is a song of
creativity and could not be more welcome
in our classrooms.
