The spring issue of Printed Pages was such a blast to produce we thought hey, you know what? Let’s ruddy well do it all over again. And so like that bit in The Lion King where the monkey holds up the newborn Simba for the animal kingdom to see for the first time, we dangle the summer issue of Printed Pages over a rocky outcrop for your delectation.
And we’re ringing in the summer with another jam-packed publication full to bursting with interviews, features and specially-commissioned creative work. Once again we sat down with creatives at the top of their game like photographer Nadav Kander and artist Geoff McFetridge to find out what informs their creative approaches and we sought out lesser-known stories like the British Museum’s extraordinary braille guides for blind visitors.
We asked three of the magazine industry’s top design talents to tell us about the titles which first inspired them, delved into the world of creative crowdfunding platform Kickstarter and tracked down the engineer who made the infamous Tate Modern crack a reality. We commissioned Ryan Hopkinson for a still-life series exploring the inter-sensory condition synaesthesia and asked Patternity to explain why recognising the patterns which underpin our lives is so important.
Artist Kate MccGwire revealed why a filthy, industrial shed wall near her studio has been an ongoing inspiration for her work and Stuart Heritage harangues a biscuit he believes has unfairly claimed the word Nice.
And at just £4 we hope that as many of you as possible are able to enjoy the fruits of our labours. Happy summer!
