Wrap Magazine Issue 7 is available now. For the Spring edition – ‘Drawn Together’ of our Wrap Magazine, we focus on illustration and design ‘collectives’, celebrating the fantastic things that come from people power!
A beautiful and inspiring issue with unique prints on our theme by 10 of the most exciting and original illustration collectives of the moment, including Nous Vous (issue 7‘s cover artists), Peepshow Collective, Edition Biografiktion and Hvass&Hannibal. And, as always, the contributors designs come printed within the magazine and on 5 double-sided pull-out sheets of wrapping paper – a perfect way for readers to share their favourite illustrations with others. We meet and photograph some of the team behind Dalston screen-print studio Print Club London / Graphic designer Anthony Burrill introduces Wrap to the old letterpress printers in Rye that he collaborates with to produce his famous posters / Wrap explores the highs and lows of collaboration through some of London’s most inspiring and eclectic team enterprises / We talk to illustrator and picture book maker Chris Haughton about his fair trade rug project ‘Made by Node’ / Wrap pairs up six illustrators to work together to design three notebook covers, and documents the production at Hato Press.
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.
