One day they put together a plan to start a magazine. They were uninspired with what was being offered on newsagency shelves and felt nothing could relate to them. Both firm friends with similar tastes, they wanted a magazine that spoke directly to the reader, contained great affordable fashion, sweet art, interesting reads, real people and pretty photography. With the support and encouragement of youth lifestyle publishing house Morrison Media, their dream became a reality.
Time for a small, celebratory bout of interpretive dance as there's a new frankie on sale!
Inside you'll find Australia's newest (and ace-est) comedians, precious hand-me-downs with tales to tell, fake legs featuring real art, The Shins' James Mercer's teenage crush, untranslatable words, sisterly love, cute jumpers, the story of how we got the vote, an awesome chair prettification project, a trip to Spain, a bunch of lady writers with male names, and – most importantly for nerd lovers – Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch.
Plus there's all the usual laughs and arty bits and nice people doing cool stuff as well. Hope you like it, frankie nation.
