There was some great coverage of the day by friends of FFF including Rob Alderson for wetransfer which you can read here, and a great little reflection by Its Nice That available here. For those of you who prefer to listen to other people chat about events you can listen along to the lovely Steve Watson of Stack Magazines in conversation with ModMag organiser Jeremy Leslie on the Stack podcast here, or delve a bit deeper with this special episode of Monocles ‘The Stack’ featuring Tony Rushton from ‘Private Eye’ and the editors of ‘The Happy Reader’, ‘MacGuffin’ and ‘Empire’.
We’re already looking forward to the ModMag 2017!
