Despite being stuffed full of excellent illustration, Limner journal wants to be seen as more than just a showcase. Good then that it’s also got some interesting words in it exploring contemporary practice – and procrastination.

This “wheat-paste adventure” around night-time streets by Edinbrugh-based student studio Tilt is pretty charming. A nicely shot, nicely put together little book. Wish I was in Stars Wars, too.

Off Life bills itself as the UK’s only street press comic magazine. They may say these are comics for a lost generation, but they’ve found a strong generation of talented cartoonists right here. There’s a huge variety of quality comics and an interview with Bryan Talbot. Here’s to many issues more.

Design consultants Hat-trick have produced this little black book to show off ten years of completed briefs. Small but perfectly formed, it fits in your palm and falls open to reveal a rainbow of work for over 150 clients. In defiance of industry jargon, they’ve let pictures do the talking, with only a couple of words to introduce each project.
