Nice publications, May edition

A new comic, a handy guide for print designers, a book documenting paper making and a new zine… Yup, it’s time to share some of the smaller, independently printed publications to land on my desk recently.

Nice publications

It’s been a while since we showcased some of the nice publications to land on our desks so here’s a few for you – including the latest from Nobrow, a zine from Wiltshire, and also the first issue of a new bi-annual publication from Manchester menswear store, entitled Pica-Post…

New from Nobrow

We have just, very happily, taken delivery of a fresh batch of hot-off-the-press publications from Nobrow’s East London HQ. They’re way too nice not to share them with you so here’s a look at each of them…

Some nice illustrated print projects

I’ve sifted through recently arrived publications to pick out a handful of projects that each make smashing use of illustration. First up is illustrator Mark Long’s Who Ate All The Pies? – a 28 page, A5 book which features a selection of football chants and illustrations…

CRTV: OPEN Studio / Landfill Editions film

In the first of a fresh series of studio-visit films, we visited London’s OPEN Studio to find out about its residents’ shared philosophy and also to talk to one of its founders, Hugh Frost, about his Landfill Editions publishing project…

A5 joy: some nice new zines

Over the last week, I’ve received various A5 packages, each containing a lovingly made, limited edition, A5 publication, invariably filled with colourful illustrations. Thought I’d share some with you…

Editorial

Illustrations that have commissioned by newspapers, magazines, etc.

Welcome to Dalston-on-Strand

Pick Me Up, London’s new graphic art fair, was a hands-on, inky-fingered success, reckons James Pallister, but will it have a lasting impact?

Thing vs other thing!

We spotted bearded men pitched against muscle-bound freaks, a cowboy taking on a snake, He-Man vs Skeletor, and even a boy scout facing death. These are just some of the subjects of Jack Teagle’s paintings, prints, sculptures and drawings exhibited at the artist’s solo show at Nobrow’s new Shoreditch gallery space…

Some nice books

Some nice books on my desk at the moment so thought I’d share them. First up is Art In Time: Unknown Comic Book Adventures 1940-1980 by Dan Nodel – a compendium of some of the characters that, despite originating from the pens of established comic artists, just never quite made it…

Pick Me Up: Nobrow

In the second installment of our batch of short films made whilst perusing the wares and exhibits of the Pick Me Up graphic art fair currently running at Somerset House, we caught up with Alex Spiro and Sam Arthur, founders of Nobrow…
