Royal College of Art mega-zine (better than a magazine but zine-sized) ARC has just treated itself to a brand spanking new website. The student-run publication exists to provide a platform for the RCA’s top talent to engage in exciting theoretical debate, dip their toes in the waters of journalism and continually refresh and reinterpret the format of printed matter. As an inherently physical work it’s not essential for ARC to have an online presence to ensure its ongoing success, but the small but growing archive is a wonderful reminder of the rich history of this prestigious publication and all the remarkable names responsible for the earlier issues. We’re looking forward to seeing this resource grow and discovering more about the illustrious history of ARC.
They’ve got a new issue out too, which you should probably grab while you’re there.
