Print Roundup: April 2019


Every month, we print hundreds of exciting, creative, well-designed newspapers and put together a roundup of our favourites.

In this edition: a peek behind the runway at Oscar De La Renta, a cookbook inspired by Cuban history, a playful ode to the hand dryers of South London and more. See them all below.

The South London Review of Hand Dryers newspaper

The South London Review of Hand Dryers

Digital mini printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

Pseudonymous creators Wedgley Snipes and Charlie Tollemache are introducing the “thriving online subculture of hand dryer criticism” into the real world with the South London Review of Hand Dryers. A playful spoof of the London Review of Books, the first edition was published last month featuring poetry, illustrations, photos and essays all dedicated to hand dryers. “It brings a tangible analogue beauty to a digital existence,” they say of the newspaper. Hear them talk about the project in a recent interview with Stack Magazines.

Revolt newspaper published by Ricardo Hernandez and printed by Newspaper Club


Digital broadsheet printed on 55gsm improved paper – then trimmed and bound by hand by Ricardo Hernandez

Inspired by the imagery of Cuba’s cultural revolution in the 1950s, this cookbook from Cuban-American artist Ricardo Hernandez is designed to "promote the sharing of immigrant stories, specifically Cuban-American immigrants and the food that shapes their culture."

Looking to midcentury poster artists like Eduardo Munoz Bachs and Rene Mederos, Hernandez designed a bright broadsheet filled with recipes that "put Cuban history into a context easily accessible for non-immigrants and immigrants alike." After printing, Hernandez trimmed and bound the newspapers by hand. The result is a totally unique and personal publication. (Photo above taken by Lindsay McAleavy)

Life is Short

Digital tabloid printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

“Good things come when you loosen your grip.” That’s how photographer William Eadon sums up the experience of printing his tabloid, Life is Short. He’s using it to share recent work with creative directors and art buyers. “I just wanted to create a leave behind that was fun and lighthearted,” he explains. “This format allowed me to play a little...with a spirit that may not be present in a more formal book.”

Beachside Film promo printed by Newspaper Club

Beachside Films

Digital tabloid printed on 90gsm bright paper

Beachside Films is an independent production company based in Venice, California. Their most recent film, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, won the Grand Jury Award at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. That film and other past and future projects are featured in this newspaper, designed by Caspar Newbolt of Version Industries and printed to distribute at the 2019 Berlinale.

“Beachside approached us to see if we could make this pamphlet a little different from everything else out there — something fresh that clients would want to keep and take home with them," Newbolt tells us. “The tendency with so much space was to fill it to the gills and to make everything as brightly coloured as possible [but] we realized that letting the stills be the biggest thing, and the type often the very smallest thing, really amplified the films and gave the whole piece a refined quality.”
