In Retrospect is a quarterly lifestyle publication, celebrating and supporting the international retrospective community.
While we’re big fans of tradition, we are, uniquely, not a traditional magazine, but rather a not-for-profit, self-published, community interest publication, entirely staffed, produced and featuring volunteers from the retrospective sub-culture across the globe. We are also the only publication of its kind aimed at both men and women equally.
Every penny we make from sales and advertising goes into the printing and distribution of the magazine, we exist to support and promote every aspect of the lifestyle (including all its individuals, small businesses, events, performers, meet-up groups, you name it) and the principles behind the retrospective community as a whole: to tell the stories of past generations so that they are not lost and to help keep history alive for future generations.
In Retrospect covers varied topics including 20th century fashion and style, music, dancing, history, culture, furniture, design and transport. As Katie Olive from The British Belles commented, “What I love about In Retrospect is that there is literally something for every kind of vintage lover. Whether you’re into the fashion, dancing or old-fashioned dating, or more interested in WWI vehicles, ration recipes or vintage home decor – In Retrospect has it all.”
