The Leopard Issue 2

by The Leopard


The Leopard is a new limited edition annual magazine from Alister Mackie, art director Jamie Andrew Reid and editor Liam Hess.

A scrapbook of archival material, new photography and rare interviews, The Leopard covers cult artists from generations past that might otherwise be overlooked, alongside emerging creatives working in their tradition today. A celebration of queer life in all of its creativity, sensuality and DIY glamour – from political activists to painters, poets to pin-ups – the features and photo stories are linked by the recurring presence of the magazine’s mascot, the elusive creature of the leopard.


The second issue delves into cult cinema with an epic tribute to Brideshead Revisited, shot at Castle Howard and starring Lucian St Aubyn. The Leopard journeys to Rome to La Posta Vecchia, the former home of the Hearst family, where Jordan Barrett seamlessly and sensually plays the role of Helmut Berger. The magazine is also proud to present a beautiful portfolio of Salman Toor’s paintings, which depict a day in the life of his heroic characters.

Contributors to this issue include Alex Foxton, Francis Bacon, Kenneth Anger, Alasdair McLellan, Brett Lloyd, Malick Bodian, Ed Marler, Nikolai von Bismarck, and Jet Swan.
