The World Doesn’t Require You, an upcoming short story collection by Rion Amilcar Scott, is set in the fictional town of Cross River. Using our traditional minis, publisher Liveright created The Cross River Review to transport readers to this world.

“We loved the idea of creating a publication from Cross River and including 2 of the stories from the book,” says designer Steve Attardo. “I wanted it to be part literary journal, part New York Times Magazine inspired.” The newspaper will be distributed at bookstores across the US to promote the book.

To accompany a talk and exhibition at  Brookhaven College in Dallas, Texas, illustrator Rob Wilson created a newspaper for students to take away. "It gives a quick visual read of my recent illustrations in a bold, fun way," says Wilson. "My work is diverse in style, and I wanted to show that collectively—and conceptually—it works together. I hope students will find some inspiration in my creative efforts as they pursue their design education."

WORD PLAY!

Dutch designer Guido de Boer recently had his first solo exhibition, WORD PLAY!, at Alley Gallery in Belgium.  Using hand lettering, de Boer Guido creates visual puzzles that bend the rules of type and play tricks on the eye. "I took this momentum of my exhibition to make a newspaper and combine the content of the exhibition with some previous projects," he tells us. "It serves two purposes: gives visitors to the exhibition some background on the works on display and provides an overview of my projects over the last five years."

Since graduating from Middlesex University  in 2012, freelance illustrator Dionne Kitching has worked for clients like Urban Outfitters, End of  the Road Festival and CICO Books. "It can be hard as an illustrator to stand out from the crowd and to get art directors to notice you," she says. "I loved the idea of sending out a newspaper portfolio—something other than an email, that would be fun to open and that people might even want to keep! It’s always amazing seeing your work in print and I really like the quality of newsprint."

Black Monday

Black Monday is a university project from Tom Astbury, a graphic design student at UWE Bristol.  Using a combination of text and archival imagery, the newspaper examines "illusions of value" by looking at the stock market crash of 1987 known as "Black Monday."

"A newspaper fit the style and time of the photographs really nicely," Astbury says. "The publication will accompany another project, where I've imagined what a physical stock share would look like. The idea is to attach some physicality to the value that stocks have."

Raw Power illustration newspaper by Grant Kratzer printed by Newspaper Club

Raw Power

Digital broadsheet printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

Illustrator Grant Kratzer, AKA Cheatin' Snakes, created this newspaper as a souvenir from a fictional race track. It's inspired by a track in the small Wisconsin town where he grew up, but Kratzer hopes people will create their own stories around the zine.

"I primarily design for screen printing and Risograph printing, which both limit the amount of color you can use," says Kratzer. "With a newspaper I could use as many colors as I wanted which I felt was a huge plus. And I loved being able to work really large and add a lot of detail to the center spread."

Kratzer took the title "Raw Power" from a 1973 album by The Stooges."I felt like that album would be a fitting soundtrack to the scenes from the newspaper."

Depending on who you talk to, failure can either be seen as a necessary stepping stone on the road to success or viewed as a crippling obstacle that must be averted at all costs. This zine aims to better understand the duality of failure by exploring how taking risks and fearing failure has affected successful people throughout history.
