If you can believe it, It’s Nice That’s spring issue – a contemplation on the impossibly huge theme of ‘space’ – is even bigger and better than our last. It’s available to pre-order now, and the benefits of doing so are simple – you get your copy before anybody else, delivered straight to your door; you’ll receive our biggest, most beautiful print ever (it’s a corker, trust us); and you get it all wrapped in an extra special, not-for-newsstands cover. What more could you ask for? More details you say? Sure, after the jump…
It’s Nice That No.8 is crammed full of content, and features some of the most fascinating creative masterminds on the planet.
Minimalist architect John Pawson talks about the non-perfect; Paula Scher talks women and education in design; Slavs and Tatars emphasise the importance of information sharing; and quietly hilarious art double act John Wood and Paul Harrison talk… well, art and comedy.
This issue is also packed-to-bursting with some very special features. Tung Walsh reveals the secret exoticism of the Barbican conservatory; Bompas and Parr take us on a journey through London, via smell; and Michael Landy reveals an Olympic plan that could, and perhaps should, have been. There’s more too, but you’ll have to wait until we release further details in the next few weeks.
