things magazine was originally founded in 1994 by a group of writers and historians based at the Victoria & Albert Museum/Royal College of Art in the belief that objects can open up new ways of understanding the world.
Now an independent magazine, things has built a reputation as a home for new writing – essays, reviews, short stories and poems – about objects and their meanings. The website contains a weblog, photography galleries, special projects, searchable archives and the occasional on-line only article.
Our printing schedule used to be biannual, but now it's just occasional. This means you can't subscribe any more, but if you'd like to be notified of new issues, drop us a line and we'll keep you up to date.
