Wrap Magazine Issue 12 ‘The Nude’ is out now. Inspired by our theme ‘The Nude’, there are five unique pull-out prints to discover in issue 12, along with in-depth interviews with the contributing artists who made them – Kelly Anna, Lilian Martinez, Joe Cruz, Daiana Ruiz and Jonathan Niclaus – giving insights into their creative lives and practices. ‘The Nude’ as a subject in art is nothing new of course, but what would it inspire – both aesthetically and conceptually – in a time when there are important ongoing conversations around gender, equality and women’s rights? How they’ve each reflected and reacted to this is fascinating to see.
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.
