1843 magazine is The Economist’s sister publication, named for the year The Economist was founded. At 1843 magazine we tell extraordinary stories from around the world, long-form, narrative journalism that covers the enduring issues of our age from the ground up. We also report on design, food and culture.

1843 tells stories that enlighten and entertain, with all the rigour and independence that readers expect of The Economist. Each one is accompanied by specially commissioned photographs and illustrations. The Economist is a weekly news magazine based in London, first published in 1843.
