Editor's Note Welcome to issue four of Télégramme Magazine. Six months since the last issue and we’re moving quickly into Autumn here in the UK. It’s nice to come back and showcase more incredible artists while the days get cooler and the air starts to take your breath away. We’ve featured long time favourite Sarah McLean (who also took our cover image) wonderful illustrator Amy Walters, and the intriguing photo of Ben Jones. This issue is all about exploring cities, skylines, hidden pathways. So go forth, find something new and do a little exploring of your own. Love from

Sarah Special Thanks Jen Dary, for pushing me when I needed to be pushed. 3
