Wrap issue 2
Wrap's second issue landed on our desks the other day. It's an oversize A3 journal that looks to champion work by contemporary illustrators, but it's also eight sheets of patterned wrapping paper...
Printed on 100% recycled 9 Lives stock, iWrap ssue 2 has the theme of Animals & Creatures and contains work by and interviews with Milan collective Carnovsky (we blogged about their wallpaper in April and also November last year), Dan Funderburgh, Patrick Hruby, Johnna Basford, Tim McDonagh, Elly Strigner, Zoran Pungercar and Thereza Rowe. There's also a rather sweet illustrated day-in-the-life spread by Gemma Correll. Here's a look inside:
Not only is every sheet of paper used in Wrap usable as patterned wrapping paper, but the back cover (printed on a slightly heavier stock) is perferated so you can use it as no less than eight notecards.

Tasty. A cheeky fusion of Nobrow & Itsnicethat? Lovely jubbly.
This looks like a great collection of work. Not sure how many people will actually use the wrapping paper and prefer to keep it looking pristine on their bookshelves... (i.e me). Lovely stuff.
BOTH LOVELY + JUBBLY great job , would not want to use in a wrapping situation,but rather as a design book!
Nice one. To paraphrase, "todays newspaper is tomorrows fish supper wrapping"...but in this case meant in a very good way. Love Patrick Hruby's fish!
Love this! And I would definitely use the wrapping paper as wrapping paper!
Beautiful, and very colourful. Love the heading and logo typography.
The cover really gives a taste of the quality of the artwork inside and the format is great.
I am wondering where I can find the magazine here in NYC?
