Here are some more details from WRAP:
'Read Wrap, wrap Wrap - new design magazine showcasing illustration work by up-and-coming talent that can be put to good use as wrapping paper'
Wrap is a new design and illustration magazine with a difference - each sheet of Wrap can be re-used as wrapping paper. Set up last Autumn by London designers Christopher Harrison and Polly Glass to showcase work by talented artists, it is printed on 100% recycled paper using vegetable based inks, and is available to buy online and in top UK design stores including Magma, Beyond the Valley, Mint, The Design Museum, Drink,Shop&Do, and Wolf&Badger.
Wrap are very pleased to announce the release of their second issue
With the theme of ‘Animals & Creatures’, issue two features work by an exceptional group of contributors from all over the world including L.A. based Patrick Hruby, Milan collective Carnovsky (who have created the colourful cover art) and London based Thereza Rowe.
As well as endeavouring to broaden all their interviews with contributing artists, Wrap have also added some new features to their second issue. These include talking to UK print designer Lisa Stickley, Japanese jewellery designer Momo Tamura about her brand Momocreatura, and one of their new regular features, an illustrated Day in the Life - in this issue by the quirky and cat obsessed freelance illustrator Gemma Correll.
Wrap have also altered their format a little since issue one, so it is now bigger (approx.A3) than before with a harder cover. The back cover has been perforated so it can become a set of eight notecards to match all the prints inside and all the sheets are only folded over once, so they're kept as neat and flat as possible, ready for when they’re pulled out and used to wrap up a present!
Being environmentally conscious, Wrap is printed on 100% recycled paper and using vegetable-based inks.
Wrap was co-founded and launched by Christopher Harrison and Polly Glass in Autumn 2010 during the London Design Festival. Their aim is to develop and produce a really exciting and appealing publication that showcases and promotes the work of talented creative people (both up-and-coming, and established) and one that bridges the gap between being a magazine and a product. They wanted to make something that could both be looked at and read, but that the consumer could also enjoy using.
Congratulations to the winners! Tim Bastian in France, Amanda Li in New York, Marianna Pedersen in Denmark, Christoph Blanc in Germany and Santi Savasta in Italy all won copies of WRAP issue two.
