Our collection of magazines and books is a reflection of our love of heritage style and counterculture. The small set of titles we stock are publications that we read and collect ourselves and each is published by the most authoritative voices in their field. Part magazines and part keepsakes, these titles will serve as points of reference and will look great on your coffee table or bookshelf long after you’ve read them cover to cover. Read more

Based around two main titles, Lightning Japan and Avant Magazine, the magazines we offer feature the world’s finest vintage collections and the stories behind the garments in them. Both titles like to focus on a particular style, or type of clothing in each issues. So if it’s western wear or vintage sweatshirts, French workwear or vintage outdoor wear you’re interested in, you’ll find it here.

Lightning’s expertise extends beyond fashion, with deeply researched titles that cover everything from vintage furniture, to shop fitting, from classic cars to the best place to get a hamburger in Tokyo. We hope you enjoy our collection.
