That's a Wrap

On thursday night I travelled down to London to attend the launch of Issue 3 of Wrap magazine at the Dezeen Space in Shoreditch. I was greeted by Polly, Chris and Harry, the team who've spent many long days and nights lovingly putting together the issue and readying new products including Wrap packs (illustrated wrapping packs including a greeting card/envelope, a sheet of standard sized wrapping paper and 4 vinyl stickers) and Tape Shapes (cute shape based alternatives to sticky tape).

Above: The magazine showing off Lesley Barnes' "Kings of the Forest" and Ruth Munro's "Frozen Berries".

In the middle of the magazine was my own spread and interview. My piece was entitled 'Where Snow Comes From' and is an enchanting tale of two yetis, who are sitting up late at night trying to catch fish for dinner, whilst decorating the scene below with some lovely snow. The image can be seen below:

There are contributions from a range of exciting illustrators and designers from the UK and beyond, including Ben Javens, Tom Clohosy-Cole, Jack HughesIker Spozio and a delightful cover by Josephin Ritschel. If that isn't enough, there are features on ceramicist Stephen Bird, design boutique Smug and much more.
If you'd like to buy it, you can do so here. And after you've bought it and you have seen all the amazing artwork and read the wonderful insights into the work of some great artists, you can take it apart and use it to wrap your presents. You can't say fairer than that!
