Thinkers! Makers! Barbed wire collectors! Smith Journal volume 13 is out today, and packed with sharp ideas.

Volcanoes! Escapologists! Morons! Pick up volume 12 and you’re in for quite a ride.

Lists. Most of us on the internet love them: small bits of info with numbers and plenty of exclamation marks! So in the spirit of this flimsy theory, here is: "Six Reasons This Volume Will Blow Your Socks Off!"

There's nothing like the spectre of death to make you stop and appreciate the wisdom of great minds.

You don't need a mohawk to be a punk. It's the DIY-ethos of creating stuff that's real and raw, regardless of what's in fashion, that matters. They might not resemble The Ramones, but volume eight is full of punks.

The world turns on the efforts of quiet men and women, and there are some brilliant minds on the pages of volume five.

To mark Smith's one-year anniversary we take the time to stop, look around and acknowledge some remarkable tales from the every day.
