‘The London Review of Books
is something new,’ the LRB
’s founding editor Karl Miller wrote in our first issue
, published 40 years ago. ‘This, for the first time, is it.’
for the first time in a decade, the same can be said of our website! As
the final flourish of our 40th anniversary year, we have relaunched lrb.co.uk
with something completely new. We very much hope you like it.

For a full calendar month, there won’t be a paywall of any kind anywhere on the site. This means that not only all 24 of this year’s issues
, but also our entire archive
dating back to 25 October 1979 and containing almost 17,500 articles,
will be free to read, for everyone, without limits, until midday on
Wednesday 15 January. Merry Christmas!
Where to start? Why not on our new subject hub pages
where you’ll find selections of some of the best pieces we’ve
published, as well as other curated collections of brilliant articles
linked by particular themes.
Elsewhere on the site, you’ll find a much-improved selection of interesting things to watch and listen to
Wherever possible, we’ve pulled together information that was previously a bit all over the place, from events listings
and online shopping links
to contributor pages
, which now feature everything written about
a particular writer, as well as everything written by them – by popular demand.
perhaps most important of all, everything, truly everything, has been
comprehensively redesigned better to reflect the austere elegance of the
paper – from masthead and multiple columns through to drop caps and
hope you like what we’ve done with the place and look forward to
reading your responses: use the hashtag #LRFREE or the feedback form in
the bottom right-hand corner of the ‘what’s new?’ page
