It’s been a good few months since we released the Winter 2014 issue of Printed Pages, but we’ve been busy little bees in that time making a magazine that’s bigger and better. It feels nicer in your hands, appears prettier to your eyes and is still unfathomably cheap. It towers at a whopping 156 pages of art and design-related goodness; that’s over 20 pages more than we’ve given you before.
The only thing you might have to grumble about is that we’re only publishing it twice a year now, but we’ve made up for that by giving this issue TWO COVERS! Aren’t we nice? Our sun-kissed cover stars come courtesy of Lithuanian photographer Tadao Cern, who snapped them unawares on a beach in eastern Europe. You can choose which one you’d like to grace your mag.
Inside you’ll find interviews with advertising royalty Dan Wieden, comics legend Charles Burns, photographer of the moment Viviane Sassen and Gail Bichler, design director of The New York Times Magazine. There’s also features on nudie drawing, private views, some of the strangest design studio names and an in-depth exploration of rock’n’roll tour photography through the ages.
Wait, there’s more! For the next two weeks you can pre-order the latest issue and the first 500 orders will get an exclusive screen print from the archive of graphic design legend Alan Fletcher, all delivered to your door before it’s available in shops. Choice!
