Publication: New year, new sexy updates to Printed Pages' Spring 2014 edition. Look alive!

Posted by James Cartwright,

For the Spring 2014 issue of Printed Pages we’re ringing in some changes, the first of which is our brand spanking new spine (just LOOK at it). Which is a direct result of the second big change; that we’ve upped the page count from 76 to 128. Kind of a big deal. We’ve also made our first foray into photographic front covers, inviting Maurizio Di Iorio to create a beautiful still life image that for him, is the epitome of spring. We’ve also used heavier paper stocks throughout, and even thrown in a coated section for good measure.

There’s now three new regular features called Show and Tell, Archive and Essentials that are intended to offer up some lighter, snappier content at the start of the mag, and we’ve included a short story to change the pace again at the end. Our eight big features are still in tact though and you’ll find plenty of articles and interviews that still offer the depth and discovery to which we were committed in 2013.

Inside we speak to designer and illustrator Lotta Nieminen about her favourite design objects, visit the studio of fashion designer Aitor Throup, interview long-term Radiohead collaborator Stanley Donwood about the stories that inspire him and have a good old natter with the team from Modern Toss. There’s features on unorthodox sports photography, gallery invigilators and senior writer of HBO’s GIRLS Lesley Arfin waxes lyrical on the theme of Nice.

We also got Rookie’s Editor-in-Chief Tavi Gevinson to discuss doing things differently with illustrator and long-term collaborator Minna Gilligan, spent a weekend with Richard Turley as he designed a special edition of ’SUP and pestered illustrator Jean Jullien about the ugliest thing he loves.

You’re going to love it!

    Good news everyone, you can now get access to the Printed Pages archive online! It’s been ages since we sold out of the last few copies of our first four issues and if we’re honest, we’ve been getting nostalgic for all those lovely articles we published way back in 2013. There was that interview with Sagmeister & Walsh when they’d only just made Jessica a partner, our racy chat with Dian Hanson about her career in pornographic magazines, the time we found out who put a massive crack down the middle of Tate Modern and our sunny visit to Geoff McFetridge’s LA studio.

    “As the story goes, the young Kenzo Takada left his job cutting patterns at a Tokyo department store in the mid-1960s to try his luck in fashion in the French capital. When he arrived in Paris in 1964 he had no money, little command of French, and no contacts to speak of, but his characteristic wide-eyed wonder served him well.

    Over the past few years we’ve swooned at the beautifully designed, endlessly imaginative work of Studio Swine, whose constant experiments in the field of sustainable design seem to yield nothing but desirable results. We became so infatuated in fact, that we decided to run a whole magazine profile on the duo in the Winter issue of Printed Pages, tracking them down to a temporary studio in east London to quiz them about their process and motivations.

    I don’t get nervous doing interviews very often, but Jeremy Deller was a sweaty-palm-inducing exception. Not only is he one of the UK’s leading artists and someone we’ve targeted for the magazine for years, he’s also one of my personal artistic heroes.

    In November 2014 it was announced that London’s Kemistry Gallery was leaving its Shoreditch home after an astronomical rent rise it was unable to meet. Much of the conversation around the news looked forward to the future, amid ambitious plans for a bigger, better space that could become a UK centre for graphic art and design.

    Carl Kleiner is a man whose reputation precedes him. He’s known internationally for his extraordinary still-life photography and has spawned countless imitators over his career. But his new book (out later this year) is unlike the Carl Kleiner most of us know. For starters this six book archive displays nothing of the pristine, polished studio environment with which we usually associate him, and secondly he’s swapped digital for analogue, using a second-hand Rolleflex and Portra film to capture his photographs.

    For the cover of Printed Pages Winter 2015 we wanted something super-seasonal to mark the end of the year and conjure up some festive wonderment on the newsstands. Of course we didn’t want it just to be any old festive tat, it had to be a little ambiguous, a touch surreal, but also familiar too. So we called in the help of still-life photographer extraordinaire John Short to help realise our ambitions.

    John Short’s cover shoot of an intriguing pair of reverse footprints sets the tone for the Winter issue of Printed Pages – riddled with intrigue and demanding closer inspection. Inside we discuss art, fame and Desert Island Discs with Jeremy Deller, explore Kenzo’s dynamic culture of creative collaboration and go treasure hunting with filmmaker Tomas Leach. Raymond Briggs reflects on growing old and what home means to him, Studio Swine discuss their innovative way of looking at the world and we pick out some of the highlights from counterculture bible The Whole Earth Catalog.
