New to the iPad

Since launching our iPad edition earlier this month, we’ve added plenty of new CR iPad-only content, including a feature on photographer Roger Ballen, a new short film soundtracked by Radium Audio, a closer look at the work of Pick Me Up illustrators Kristjana Williams, and Michael Kirkham, and an intricate animation, inspired by a 16th century Dutch painting…

Since launching our iPad edition earlier this month, we’ve continued to add plenty of new CR iPad-only content, including a feature on photographer Roger Ballen, a new short film soundtracked by Radium Audio, a closer look at the work of Pick Me Up illustrators Kristjana Williams, and Michael Kirkham, and an intricate animation, inspired by a 16th century Dutch painting.

Amongst our new additions to the April iPad edition, we take a look inside the pages of Woodcut, a new publication collecting together the large-scale prints of Bryan Nash Gill.

Short film, Micro Empire, visits the world of the microscopic, soundtracked by sound design studio Radium Audio.

Rob and Nick Carter bring a 16th century Dutch painting to life in painstaking detail, in an animation that took almost 4,000 hours to complete.

Quayola and Memo have created an intricate, generative animation for the Cultural Olympiad programme at the National Media Museum.

Colin Buttimer looks at the latest release from Second Language, which includes a CD, cassette and a beautifully illustrated accompanying book. Colin will be contributing to the iPad each month, and you can read more from him over at Hard Format, a site dedicated to exploring music design and packaging.

Illustrator Michael Kirkham talks us through some of his most significant pieces of work to date, including a pop-up forest book.

And in an iPad-only feature, we catch up with Roger Ballen by phone from Johannesburg, to discuss his first major UK exhibition, and his work in general.

We also preview some of the original works from Andy Rementer’s solo exhibition, at the Ship of Fools gallery in the Netherlands.

And we look in detail at Russell Bell’s meticulous technical illustrations and maps.

The app can be downloaded from here, and includes a free sample issue. Expect more updates throughout April, and a brand new issue of the iPad app in May.
