We're happy to report that June was one for the record books: it was our busiest month, ever! While we've managed to whittle things down to a bite-sized roundup, we've also held back a few extra special projects to take a closer look at on the blog later this month. Stay tuned! Until then, pore over some favourite finds piping hot off the press:

Shengnu illustrated newspaper by Elise Miniaïlo. See more from our latest print roundup. Make and print your own newspaper with Newspaper Club.

Shengnu

Digital broadsheet printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

Design student Elise Miniaïlo used a newspaper to explore (and challenge) "sheng nu" – a controversial term for unmarried women in China. The digital broadsheet forms part of a "protest kit" that also includes branded pin badges, stickers and a tote bag. Through bold visual language, Miniaïlo makes a case that, regardless of marital status, "women should be proud."

RCA Jewellery and Metal Department catalogue. Make and print your own newspaper with Newspaper Club.

RCA Jewellery and Metal degree show catalogue

Traditional tabloid printed on 70gsm bright paper

Manipulating age-old materials is second nature to students of the Jewellery and Metal course at Royal College of Art, so trust their newspaper to break the mould. This catalogue, printed to accompany the 2017 degree show, feels fresh and modern thanks to playful typography and pared-down design. RCA worked with design agency Omnigroup to create a simple but striking exhibition programme. The result is both artful and functional – a thoughtfully-designed memento that doubles as a map and directory of contact details.

A Foraged Feast tells the story of Farmdrops producers and customers. Make and print your own newspaper with Newspaper Club.

A Foraged Feast by Farmdrop

Traditional broadsheet printed on 52gsm recycled newsprint

Farmdrop's customers love photographing their veggie boxes, and lately a newspaper's been popping up alongside the weekly #farmdrop haul. The farm-to-table delivery service is introducing local producers in A Foraged Feast, the traditional broadsheet they're sending with their carefully sourced groceries. "Having something physical is a nice expression of our brand," says designer Georgie Nash. "Because we're a small and personal business, it's also an opportunity to show staff faces and their picks on everything from food to podcasts."

The foraging guide (pictured above) has been a big hit, with edible plants, photographed by Natalé Towell, printed true to scale.

No Paradise is a collection of short writings and photography by Joe Granato. Printed as a broadsheet newspaper by Newspaper Club.

Artist Jelle Solemé confounds (and intrigues) readers with her juxtaposition of seemingly unrelated objects. Read more about her newspaper on the Newspaper Club blog.

ik had er beter naar gekeken

Digital broadsheet printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

Belgian artist Jelle Solemé presents a confounding procession of objects (potato, coffee filter, hair pin) in her digital broadsheet. Intrigued, we asked her to tell us what it's all about: "On one hand, the project is about daily objects and their beauty. On the other hand, it's about how our brain works. When we see objects combined with other objects, we always search for the link between the two. In my newspaper, you never know what will appear next – each time you read the newspaper, you will read it differently."

Traditional mini printed on 70gsm bright paper

We can't read much of this topsy-turvy programme for La Reine Blanche, a science-centric theatre in Paris. But the layout by design studio Atelier Papier makes clear there's an exciting jumble of events in their 2017 - 2018 calendar.

Christopher Raeburn newsprint lookbook. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Christopher Ræburn Spring/Summer 2018 lookbook

Traditional tabloid printed on 70gsm improved paper

Extreme landscapes, from the Gobi desert to the Himalayas, inspired the latest collection from fashion designer Christopher Ræburn. In this Spring/Summer 2018 catalogue you'll find anoraks constructed from "pre-flown kites" and hoodies patterned with jerboas – a hopping desert rodent that's this season's mascot – plus a sneak peek of an upcoming collaboration with fellow Newspaper Club customers Instrmnt.

The Rise of the Millenial Lawyer: 14 Ways A Generation Is Changing the Rules by Jordan Furlong. Printed by Newspaper Club.

The Rise of the Millenial Lawyer: 14 Ways a Generation Is Changing the Rules

Traditional mini printed on 70gsm improved paper

We admit it: sometimes we judge a newspaper by its cover. But the substantial report behind this bubbly design from Lawyers on Demand (LOD) is more than meets the eye. Inside, award-winning legal industry consultant and blogger Jordan Furlong considers shifting attitudes in law practice as a new generation of lawyers enters the workforce.
