CR May features an extra 102 pages of great work in The Annual, plus we have features on how designers can help Japan, David Byrne, Penguin's Great Food series, the late Ron Collins, and Andy Rementer. Our 'A' is rendered from data from the blog...

If you would like to buy this issue and are based in the UK, you can search for your nearest stockist here. Based outside the UK? Simply call +44(0)207 292 3703 to find your nearest stockist. Better yet, subscribe to CR for a year here and save yourself almost 30% on the printed magazine. If you subscribe before Wednesday April 27 you will receive the May issue/Annual as part of your subscription.

Minivegas created this month's cover using a specially created app that stripped out every story and image featured on the CR blog over the past year and rendered the data into an 'A' (the project was produced by Nexus Interactive Arts). CR readers will be able to download the app for themselves and we'll post more details about this, how the cover itself was made, plus a film of the process in action, later in the week.

 

Inside the May issue we have The Annual, our showcase of the finest work of the year, which includes 12 Best in Book projects and over 100 pages of great work.

 

In the regular issue, Mark Sinclair looks at the ways that designers can help in times of crisis (and we set a special brief for some students at Kingston University); while Rick Poynor meets David Byrne, a man of many considerable artistic talents.

We talk to Penguin's Coralie Bickford-Smith about the Great Food series covers.

Gavin Lucas meets up with illustrator, Andy Rementer.

While Eliza Williams looks at the life and work of uncompromising ad-man, Ron Collins.

In Crit, we have an extract from Four Corners' brilliant new book, Beauty Is In The Street, a collection of posters from the May '68 student protests in Paris...

 

Jeremy Leslie looks at Colors magazine as it reaches its 20th birthday; while Eliza Williams wonders why ad agencies invest in graduate recruitment for account managers and planners, but creatives rarely get the same opportunities.

 

Also, Andy Cameron examines the rise of the location-based app technology, and where it's going next; and Mark Sinclair writes about Candy Chang's Before I Die installation.

 

In this month's subscriber-only Monograph, we have a selection of the prints available from the Designers for Japan initiative, which CR has been involved in setting up.

CR May/The Annual is available from April 21.

So your "nearest stockist" tool as a great idea but it is completely wrong. I know for a FACT that at least 3 of the places listed do not, and never have, stocked CR. Infact I am finding it harder and harder to find copies of CR and DW anywhere.



Shame – I would of bought it

@Dancer Thanks for bringing this to our attention and sorry that you are finding it hard to find copies of the magazines. Please could you tell me exactly which stores you are referring to and will take this up with our newsstand provider?

Can I just clarify one thing about the tool finder which has confused some people - the left hand side are stockists and the right hand side are stores where you can order a copy.

You can also buy a copy directly from us by calling 020 7292 3703. Thanks,
Laura
