Souvenirs of a James Jarvis art adorned skate park

All Aboard For 100 Minutes Of Havana

Regular readers of CR may recall we showcased a selection of art pieces created for the 100 Pieces of Havana project curated by design studio Intercity (co-founded by ex-CR art director, Nathan Gale) in our August issue last year.

There suddenly seems to be loads of eye-catching record sleeves and CD packages pouring into Creative Review’s office. And hooray for that!
