The Idler is an annual, book-shaped magazine that campaigns against the work ethic.
It was founded in 1993 by Tom Hodgkinson and his friend Gavin Pretor-Pinney. The title comes from a series of essays by Dr Johnson, published in 1758-9 in the Gentleman’s Magazine.
The intention of the magazine is to return dignity to the art of loafing, to make idling into something to aspire towards rather than reject. As well as providing a radical and thought-provoking read, The Idler is also very funny.
The trial issue of The Idler is a joint project with those marvellously polite revolutionaries, the men from QI, John Lloyd and John Mitchinson. It features sixteen fascinating facts from the QI databanks, a quite interesting conversation and QI presents idleness among the animals.
