THE MUSHROOM is a biannual print and digital magazine for everyone - artists to herbalists, ecologists to engineers - interested in or inspired by fungi.
Created by a team passionate about all things mycological, THE MUSHROOM is a beautiful, critical and informative print space for mushroom enthusiasts and all those working with mushrooms to connect, share and be inspired.
Bringing together essays, interviews, clinical reports, photography, illustration, research round-ups and more, each issue is designed to be a unique object and a valuable addition to any mycophile’s library.
THE MUSHROOM is published by Mycology Press as a not-for-profit undertaking with all profits donated to charities, especially those using mushrooms to uplift, empower and address some of the challenges we face at this time.
