For the month with the longest day of the year—happy solstice!—we've put together an extra long print roundup. Below are 14 newspapers getting us through the dog days of summer, from a typography-inspired activity book to a satirical fashion magazine.

Pitch newspaper designed by graphic design students at Camberwell College of Arts

Pitch

Traditional tabloid printed on 52gsm recycled newsprint

Pitch was a 3-day event in Old Spitalfields Market, organised by design students from Camberwell College of Arts.  Through performance, discussion, workshops, and on-site making—including portrait drawing and tote bag stamping—Pitch imagined how design might respond to the changing shape of public spaces.

The graphic identity, including the newspaper programme above, was designed by a group of first year students: Cara Watson, Lena Yokoyama, Mona Neilson, Sam Moore, Patrick Thomas and Syzmon Pajka.

Digital tabloid printed on 90gsm bright paper

Los Angeles-based shoe company No.One uses a newspaper to educate customers about the process and materials behind their line of handmade, vegetable tanned sneakers. "We feel that printed matter is better suited for us than just sending out an email," says co-founder and creative head Mark Gainor. "And as a designer, I find myself more inspired when I know the work will be printed."

Edward's Fish and Chip Kitchen menu

Traditional tabloid printed on 52gsm recycled newsprint

The motto at Edward's Fish and Chip Kitchen in Yorkshire is "make it sustainable." That extends to the restaurant's menu, which is printed on 100% recycled newsprint (and can be recycled again after use). "We wanted to create something that was traditional but with a twist," says designer Vicki Maher of ALLGOOD. They added an extra fold to a tabloid after printing, creating a neat format that won't take up too much space on the table.

Type Supply's Big Little Activity Book

Traditional mini printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

Event goodie bags can be a great way to get your work in front of an audience—as long as you stand out amongst a jumble of pens, postcards and other branded swag. For the Typographics festival last month, Tal Leming of Type Supply created something to keep attendees occupied between talks: an activity book full of games, puzzles, jokes, and stories about his recent work. One of our favourite spreads is a clever "Spot the Difference" that shows just how detailed-orientated a type designer needs to be:

"Typeface marketing can be pretty monotonous and I'm a restless designer, so I like to try weird things," says Leming, who collaborated with Post Typography on the newspaper. "It's a lot of nonsense but hopefully it's funny and memorable. Maybe it'll even make people want to buy some fonts."

Pinches is a quarterly newspaper for Altatto, where creativity in food meets with graphic design. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Pinches for  Altatto

Traditional mini printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

Pinches is a quarterly publication for Altatto, a creative catering service in Milan. Designer Alessandro Brunetti added an extra vertical fold to the mini newspapers by hand, creating an unusually narrow format. Each spread can be read folded or unfolded (see more photos on Brunetti's website!) and reflects the surprising and meticulously constructed dishes created by the chefs of Altatto.

Christopher Raeburn lookbook fashion newspaper

Christopher Raeburn Spring/Summer 2019 lookbook

Traditional tabloid printed on 70gsm improved paper

Christopher Raeburn is known for finding inventive uses for recycled materials. With his Spring/Summer 2019 collection, which debuted at London Fashion Week last month and is showcased in the newsprint lookbook above, Raeburn again brings sustainable fashion to the runway with pieces made from repurposed military fabrics. For a collaboration with Timberland, the designer sourced vintage pieces from the outdoor brand in thrift stores.

“This collection lives as as sign of our times,” says the introduction to the newspaper. “Our weather is in flux and climate change is real. We're asking you to consider your consumption. Choose well and choose less."

Newspaper about Pan Twardowski illustrated by Przemyslaw Sitek. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Pan Twardowski

Digital tabloid printed on 90gsm bright paper

In Polish folklore, Pan Twardowski is a 16th century nobleman who sells his soul in exchange for magical powers. The designer Przemyslaw Sitek, who was born in Poland and now works in Germany, puts a modern twist on the story in this illustrated newspaper set in a world of dive bars, denim vests and food trucks. Newspaper suited this "punkish atmosphere" says Sitek, and his two-colour palette—the illustrations are all in green and brown—looks clean and punchy in print.

Stitch Bitch zine printed by Newspaper Club

Stitch, Bitch!

Digital tabloid printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

It's been more than 150 years since Thomas Hood wrote "The Song of the Shirt", his poem about a seamstress working "in poverty, hunger, and dirt." But for the editors of Stitch, Bitch!, the conditions Hood describes are "frighteningly relevant." That's why they chose exploitation as the theme for the first issue of a new publication that's "giving fashion the needle". Stitch, Bitch! takes a cue for Punch (the magazine where "The Song of the Shirt" was first published in 1843) with cartoons and essays satirising the abuses of the fashion industry, from unpaid internships to squalid housing.

This newsprint catalogue showcases all 6 editions of their prints—subjects range from fishing lures to monochrome flowers —and was delivered to interior designers and architects around the world.

"It served as a great vehicle for us to place an elegant, playful, substantive object in the hands of prospective clients," say Faust and Mulvihill, who chose newsprint for "the utilitarian and distinctive feel, its timelessness and its materiality."
