The Lifted Brow (also known as TLB and/or The Brow) is a publishing organisation from Australia that makes magazines for both Australia and the world, as well as publishing books, producing events, and more. Its flagship publication is a print magazine which is also called The Lifted Brow.
Established in 2007 by Ronnie Scott, and run since early 2012 by Sam Cooney and a large and young team, The Lifted Brow's magazines are also available online in website form, and in digital as an iOS app. Online articles are published on demand, the digital version is published fortnightly, and the printed version is produced every two months.
