Print Roundup: October

Newspaper Club Print Roundup: October

We're eyeing our hot water bottles and getting ready to settle in for the winter ahead with a big stack of newspapers for company. From a zine exploring the power of character in animation to a topsy-turvy portfolio of puzzles, this month we've got a roundup of print we'd be happy to hibernate with.

La Gazette Newspaper Menu

La Gazette

Digital tabloid printed on 90gsm bright paper

At Au Nom du Pied in Ghent, you can order a cappuccino and try on a pair of snakeskin boots at the same time. The cafe-slash-shoe shop worked with creative agency Rhye to design a functional menu that serves up plenty of personality.

Minor Voices 2

Digital broadsheet printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

To accompany her latest video installation, currently on view at Secret Dungeon in Brooklyn, French artist Anouchka Oler printed 100 numbered editions of Minor Voices.

The newspaper, designed by Roxanne Maillet, provides context for the more obscure sculptures, props and images that appear in the video.

Relate Live by Zendesk

Traditional tabloid printed on 55gsm recyled newsprint

In October, Zendesk took their expertise in digital interactions offline with Relate Live – a conference series exploring the complicated nature of customer relationships through workshops, interactive sessions and talks by industry leaders.

Illustrations by Marcus Oakley pop up throughout the event newspaper, which includes the weekend's agenda, interviews with speakers, tips for getting around NYC and articles about making the most of the conference experience (Don't post group selfies without permission!)

Famines Newsprint Single desinged by Raymond Biesinger. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Famines: The Complete Collected Singles

Digital broadsheet printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

Canadian band The Famines released their first “paper single” in 2011 – a newsprint poster with a code to download the music. (Chart Attack called it "the solution to vinyl’s 'format gentrification.'")

Now The Famines have reprinted that first newspaper, Complete Collected Singles 2008-2011, with 2 unreleased tracks and artwork by the band’s singer/guitarist, illustrator Raymond Biesinger.

The Power of Character: Animade Studio Newspaper. Printed by Newspaper Club.

The Power of Character

Digital mini printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

The Power of Character started life as a talk by Animade creative directors Tom Judd and Ed Barrett.

"The talk seemed so spot-on in summarising our beliefs and our passion,” says Animade, the animation studio behind Dropbox’s delightful new illustrations. “We decided to turn it into an online article and then produce a printed tabloid version."

This isn't the first time Animade have turned a blog post into a newspaper – last year they chatted with us about The Seven Steps of Animation Production. "Online articles are great in that they're accessible for anyone," says Animade. "But a physical object is much nicer to hand to our clients and friends in person—or by post—as a gift, and hopefully as something they'll read, keep and return to.”

Terra Nullius Newspaper by Vera Gomes. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Terra Nullius

Traditional broadsheet printed on 52gsm recycled newsprint

"Terra nullius” means "nobody’s land” in Latin. Artist Vera Gomes explores the modern use of the term – which has been applied to celestial bodies, the high seas and sometimes the internet – in a newspaper. Through intentionally low resolution images and digital glitches, Gomes presents a "voyage through nullius territory."

Deluxe: Drift Record Shop newspaper. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Deluxe Issue #14

Traditional mini printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

Published by Drift Record Shop in Totnes, Devon, Deluxe is one of our longest running newspapers – we’ve been printing it since 2012! – and the self-described “world’s best free independently distributed quarterly periodical newspaper about independent record shops."

Issue 14 features interviews with artists This Is The Kit, Julia Jacklin, Katie Von Schleicher and Washed Out about what record shops mean to them (with some confessions about embarrassing first record purchases). Read it on ISSU.

A Portfolio of Puzzles

Digital mini printed on 55gsm improved newsprint 

First a coloring book – last year’s Washed Out, which supported mental health charities – and now A Portfolio of Puzzles. Illustrator Jamie Kirk knows how to get people to take a closer look at his work – who can resist mazes and word searches?

Creature broadsheet newspaper poster. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Creature Poster

Digital broadsheet printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

And finally, and fittingly spooky poster for the month of October. Los Angeles-based artist Christopher Payne, who co-founded visual arts mag Fine Print, turned his “Antlered Creature” illustration into a big newsprint poster.

“Newsprint is a medium that takes on a life of its own,” says Payne. "There's a place for creating art that will be around long after the artist who made it is gone, but there is an equal importance in creating work that, at least in some sense, you will outlive."
