Wrap Magazine is a publication that bridges the gap between being a magazine and a product – while each themed edition comes full of interviews and features on an eclectic range of creative endeavours, it also includes ten illustrated wrapping papers made especially for that issue, printed on five double-sided pull-out sheets. So Wrap Magazine becomes a magazine you can use, as well as one to read and enjoy. Founded by designers Chris Harrison and Polly Glass in September 2010 with the aim of showcasing the work of up-and-coming illustrators. Wrap is published three times a year and stocked in more than 150 shops around the world. reative directors Chris and Polly are helped by editor Harry Glass, plus regular features writer Sarah Housley. But it is the talented contributing illustrators, as well as other freelance writers and photographers, who help to make Wrap possible.
