Issue 1478 - The Connor Brothers

Sure to be a highly sought after collector’s item, we’ve teamed up with The Connor Brothers for a special art edition.

The renowned artistic duo have pulled together a compelling guest edit, entitled “This is Britain”, which features Greentea Peng, Jamal Edwards, Noga Levy-Rapoport, Amika George, Professor Green, Slowthai and Ryan Lanji. There’s also an exclusive Letter To My Younger Self from tennis superstar Andy Murray.

As part of the collaboration, The Connor Brothers are auctioning a unique set of artwork and selling a limited-edition print to raise money for The Big Issue.

There’s much more inside too. We climb aboard with the Big Issue vendors who voyaged to the Isle of Wight and Reg in Bangor tells us why he likes selling the magazine. He says: “Without The Big Issue I don’t think I’d be alive, or I’d be locked up”.

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.50 and sell it on to the public for £3.00, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
