ublishing, what a wonderful world to work in, it provides opportunities to meet our idols and to learn and write about the icons we were unable to meet in life. This issue has provided me with the chance to do both. For me there was no doubt that the most interesting person I could have the chance to have on our front cover was Sir David Attenborough. Sir David my hero. He is one of the most powerful voices and faces in television. He has dedicated over 60 years to his work, and I do hope that it continues for much, much longer. We look at his incredible life and work on pages 20-23. From television hero to literary giant – from page 32 we talk to bestselling writer Louis de Bernières, author of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Bird Without Wings and discuss his latest release The Dust That Falls From Dreams. We also take a look at the life of fashion icon Coco Chanel on page 28. Additionally, we have been lucky enough to talk to not one but two inspirational chefs – Pascal Barbot and Claudio Sadler – don’t miss our interviews with them on pages 80 and 84. Finally, as the nights draw in and our thoughts turn to winter festivities, don’t miss our guide to the best Christmas markets in Europe on pages 46-49. So this issue is the last of 2016. It has been a great year with many wonderful changes that have helped H Edition grow across the world. We have a strong distribution, we have a large digital footprint and we have launched H Edition Milan just this month. For 2017 we will be launching Venice and Monaco. I wish you a wonderful Autumn/Winter and look forward to seeing you in 2017!
