Dumbo Feather is an iconic Australian magazine. Published quarterly for seven years, and hailed around the world as a design leader, it is a magazine like no other. Our readers are people who want to be told a different story than the one they hear every day. Each quarterly issue features five extended (20 page) profiles of people worth knowing, across enterprise, education, science, sport, politics, fashion and the arts. Whether they’ve touched millions, or just those around them, we take the time to get to know these people, and ask them to tell us their stories.
The Dawn Chorus • Somewhere around the world right now, day is breaking. Should that light touch songbirds across cities and countrysides, nature’s greatest symphony begins: a dawn chorus. One bird sounds, then the next and another… all together! An incandescent crescendo! Fweet-fweet, ooh-ooh, aaw-aaw! As the sun keeps circling us, so too do these birds keep singing us awake.
