Print Roundup: October

Roundup of the best newspapers we printed this month.

Soil studies, type specimens, football tournaments, crowd-sourced recipes – and more!

Here's a glimpse of some newspapers that caught our eye coming off the press in October. Thanks to everyone who printed with us – we can't wait to see what's in store for next month.

Le Grand Tourni du Balloon football zine. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Le Grand Tournoi du Ballon

Traditional mini printed on 70gsm improved

This gorgeous zine was produced by Paris's most stylish football club –  Le Ballon FC, which is made up of artists, photographers, designers and writers (aka the "branché" sector, as Le Ballon's Qays Zeroual calls it). Earlier this month, Le Ballon's eight teams met to kick off the first tournament of the season – Le Grand Tournoi du Ballon. Their zine, designed by creative studio Nutmeg, introduces the players and shows off the bespoke crests created by each team (with some beautiful artwork thrown in, too – see above).

Soil City

Traditional mini printed on 70gsm improved

You wouldn't expect a publication about soil to be one of this month's most delightful reads. But then that's exactly why the Soil City project exists – to reveal the fascinating, overlooked world beneath our feet. Initiated by Glasgow-based Open Jar Collective, Soil City calls on citizens and a community of scientists, artists and activists to "reimagine the city as if soil matters." The Soil City zine, which launched at the Radical Independent Bookfair Project in October, documents the research and conversations so far. Design and layout by Design by Zag.

It’s a way to share the work and events they’ve delivered over the past six months and celebrate the people that made it all happen.

It Pays to Advertise

Traditional tabloid printed on 70gsm bright

Illustrator Andy Smith is a longtime friend of Newspaper Club – he's been using newsprint to show off his work since 2012. "It's much better than yet another email newsletter," he says. "A printed newspaper arriving at the office cannot be ignored!" Smith's latest portfolio is packed with exciting new projects, from book jackets for Penguin to a splendid poster for V Festival, printed as a double-page spread.

This year, he's upgraded to our thicker and whiter 70sgm bright stock, to give his colourful illustration extra punch. You can flick through all of Andy Smith's newspapers in The Newsagent.

This winter, photographer Matt Georges followed the Vans Snow Team to Japan – across the deep backcountry of Hokkaido Island  and through the streets of Honshu. He collected his favourite snowy shots in a 48-page newspaper, which will be available soon (for free!) in Vans stores across Europe. "We're all super fans of newsprint at VANS," Georges says. "We're really happy with how it turned out."

A quote from Karl Lagerfeld ("I'm very much down to earth. Just not this earth") is translated into different languages to showcase each typeface – above, his enigmatic words written in Le Jeune in Swedish.
