This week the Second Year Bachelors of Graphic Design and Illustration at Konstfack in Sweden visited It’s Nice That and gave us this excellent newspaper. In large format, with good paper, scrumptious deep blue, lovely illustrations and interesting words half of which I can’t understand, it looks like those students are training at the right place.

British photographer Tim Morris’ heavy little black book of 180 of his favourite shots travel all over the world to capture still moments from coffee rings to wild expanses. Rich colours and an eye for the overlooked detail.
