The smiles of Printed Pages: A simple pause for a moment of happiness

We wanted to put a smile on the newsstand with the first issue of Printed Pages this year as a defiant riposte to the unrelenting state of news. We presented a one-word brief to our friends and collaborators from across the world: Smile. Here, we publish the responses.

The smiles range from comic to wonky, grotesque to naive, yet they are united in an expression of joy. Some of the smiles actually happened, others are imagined, all of them are a happy act of creativity. Each act as a simple pause for a moment of happiness.

The SS17 issue of Printed Pages is available here.
