Print Roundup: November

Newspaper Club print roundup: November

Every month, we print hundreds of fun, inventive, well-designed newspapers and put together a roundup of our favourites. Welcome to our November edition. (This is technically our last roundup of the year – up next will be a review of standout newspapers we printed in 2018!)

Below, some of the newspapers that caught our eye amidst the holiday furor: an offbeat journal juxtaposing art and politics, a zine exploring the black British experience and patterned posters inspired by quilts. Scroll on to see them all.

Yam and Other Hard Food is “a love note....to self” with text by artist Georgina Johnson, who works under the name Saint Lov’ie, and photography by Adama Jalloh. Produced as part of NOW Gallery’s exhibition "Another England: Human Stories", the free zine is a collection of “wranglings with the contemporary black British experience.” The publication is a follow-up to a zine Johnson published with photographer Tyler Mitchell in 2017, also examining themes of identity. “I like editing my thoughts and giving them physical life on printed matter,” says Johnson. “I get to choose how to embrace mistakes or blips and glitches by having a relaxed attitude about it all.”

There was no shortage of work for London-based photographer Will Sanders to feature in his latest promo. “I shoot loads and the prospect of editing it all down was overwhelming!” says Sanders, whose editorial work has appeared in The New York Times, Wired and Esquire. In the end, he used our digital tabloids to showcase Roadworks, a series of images he shot on a road trip through the American West. “I really love the paper and am already thinking of other projects to print.”

As the TEDxLondon team is entirely volunteer-led, the content for this newspaper was created by volunteers. Design by Rebecca Menzie and Sabrina Russ.

Critical Practice is a series of conversations initiated by students and alumni from the AA School of Architecture in London. They created a visual identity using archival imagery and simple colour lines to design 3 posters that complement each other but also stand alone. The students, part of the AA Print Studio, chose newsprint for its “generous format, but also as a reference to actuality.”

In YOU THERE, book designer Katerina Hazell presents a series of hand-coloured patterns inspired by quilts. “The big pages of the tabloid format remind of blankets!” she says. “I like how the geometric patterns interact with the hand-drawn lines and textured coloring. At first glance it looks very uniform, but there are discoveries to make.”

Hot Potato is a new arts and politics magazine, printed in English and French, and published “twice a year or so.” Founder Naoise O’Keeffe explains the concept: “A creative team and a journalist are both given the same topic. Without meeting or having a discussion beforehand, they are asked to respond accordingly.” The result is an offbeat juxtaposition of text and imagery – in the first tissue, on topics of Brexit, gender, gun control and and climate change. Design by Maud Vervenne.
