Contents 66 Issue 7 In this issue... Creativity has always been at the heart of Jaguar. From the iconic lines of the E-Type to the 2019 World Car of the Year – the all-electric I-PACE – the brand has believed in being, in the words of the company’s founder Sir William Lyons, “like no other”. It is this spirit of ingenuity and individuality that we celebrate in Jaguar Magazine. Everywhere, creative people are challenging and changing the way we experience and think about the world. Some are doing it in small ways, some at a vast scale. Others are improving the already great or taking huge leaps into new territories. All are using their creativity to move forward, to drive progress. In this issue, we meet inspirational people from the worlds of design, technology, philanthropy, dining and literature, drive to creative hubs across the world and gaze into the future to glimpse what’s coming next. Enjoy the journey.

JAGUAR MAGAZINE celebrates creativity in all its forms, with exclusive features that inspire sensory excitement, from seductive design to cutting-edge technology.
The latest issue features a range of inspiring people: from Luke Jennings, creator of Villanelle, one of the most interesting television characters in recent times, to Marcus Du Sautoy, who ponders whether artificial intelligence is on the brink of becoming creative. Out on the road, we visit the US to explore the foodie heaven of Portland in a Jaguar I-PACE, take a Jaguar XE to the south of France to get a photographer’s viewpoint of the charming town of Arles, and much more.
