Celebrating local business with the St James’s Correspondent

The last time the St. James's neighborhood in London had a local newspaper, Oscar Wilde was writing letters to its editor. After more than a century without its own news source, St. James's can now boast  The Correspondent as its trusted man on the ground.

The traditional tabloid publication, beautifully designed and art directed by creative agency dn&co, is part of a project commissioned by The Crown Estate to rejuvenate the identity of St. James's. Now in its ninth edition, The Correspondent champions a vibrant local community, showcasing the many independent retailers and restaurants in the area.

As the The Crown Estate explains: "Global news is very much big business, but often the important local news, exciting events, and the individual voices and stories of our immediate surroundings get lost."

This latest issue features articles about the Sunspel factory in Derbyshire, the Portland Stone quarries of Dorset, a day in the life of the kitchen at The Ritz, Canadian outdoor clothing company Arc’teryx and more. There's also photography from Ivan Jones, Josh Shinner, Patricia Niven, and Tian Khee Siong.
