Be ‘QUICK ON THE DRAW’ – it’s issue four!

North America is the theme for this Spring edition of Wrap, the magazine where every sheet can be whipped out once read and reused as wrapping paper thanks to the original prints on the reverse side of each.

We hunt high and low for brilliant illustrators who design prints to our theme, and we’re very proud to present the work of ten more talented individuals – six from the US and Canada, and four from further afield. All have captured something of what this vast continent means to them.

As well as the ten pull-out sheets, plus their corresponding note- cards and interviews with each designer, Wrap issue four is packed with features exploring creativity and design in North America, including:

  • Grace Bonney interview, founder of hugely successful interiors blog Design*Sponge
  • portfolio sample of brilliant New York photographer Simon Biswas
  • resurgent popularity of letterpress printing in North America
  • magCulture maestro Jeremy Leslie on curating design show
  • visit Primitive Press founder Louis Vincent

Collaboration: 100 special edition covers

Wrap is proud to be offering 100 special edition copies of issue four featuring hand-pulled screen printed covers by Primitive Press, in collaboration with founder Louis Vincent. Each one comes with a print on the back that can be framed, and all are signed and numbered by Louis. These are available to buy from our online shop at
