Received my copy of issue five of Eight:48, an 80-page colour newspaper published by the online Art & Design bookstore Counter-Print.
Each issue focuses on a different theme relevant to the current creative scene. Previous themes include contemporary poster design, a look at new design companies and illustration collectives and a discussion of the future of print. Issue 5, ‘Counter-Print: Cover to Cover’, is all about books: the bulk of the magazine is given over to a lovingly catalogued archive of all the art & design books that have appeared on Counter-Print; there are also essays on the design, collecting and storing of books.
Issue Price: £6 (including p&p to UK)
