Cheese magazine is an independently made and independently minded publication from the UK, but with global roots. Created by Holly Catford, Anna Sulan Masing, Apoorva Sripathi and Jean-Baptiste Beroud, Cheese aims to “put people and produce at the heart of the stories,” their shop page notes. “The content ranges from engaging and thought provoking essays and personal histories to photo stories: it is fun, researched and personal, and explores the unique all through the wonderful lens of cheese.”
With the release of issue two in late 2021, Cheese saw four covers released which ranged from illustrative pieces to photography, following their creative art direction throughout the inside spreads. The interlinking theme remained the same with the brand new issue three sitting within the same diversity range as the first two issues. “It would be fair to say that this issue gets close and personal with the wonderful animals that make the cheeses we love,” Papercut shop notes.

The cover for issue three was released earlier in August via social media. It features a near side profile photo of a sheep, setting the tone for the issue. A few spreads have been released on their main website; it features an interview with writer Georgina Hayden, a piece analysing cheese within pop culture, sheep photo-journalism and insight into queer inclusivity within the cheese industry. On Instagram they write, “Gaze at chonky sheep and playful cows, read about goats in the hills of France and the countryside of Thailand, and camels in Australia that tell a story of halloumi.”
