About us


The essayist Alain de Botton wrote, “Foreign news should offer us a means by which to humanize the Other.” Latterly has taken up this cause, bridging gulfs of distance and culture through narrative form, deep personal connection and arresting photography. Our monthly editions may shuttle our readers from a river barge in Laos to a living room in Cairo to a union meeting in Bolivia. With each compelling story, foreigners become less foreign, our readers are enriched and their commutes fly by.

In exchange for just $3 per month, subscribers receive full access to new and past issues and unlimited use of Latterly’s iOS app. Plus, Latterly pledges to remain ad-free, independent and transparent. On our subscribers-only community page, we post updates and seek fresh ideas. Virtually all of our revenue goes directly to our far-flung correspondents, enabling their craft and this important magazine.
