Small is beautiful

This is a newspaper. It really is. Well, it was once anyway.

We got a lovely email the other day with the subject line ‘A Year Late, Thank You’. This was from Graham Jones, who last year was a student at Bath School of Art and Design.

For their degree show last year the students had a great idea to transform a humble newspaper into something different.

Their publication, called ‘Checkout’ was designed to look like a receipt. They printed a standard tabloid newspaper, but designed it in such a way that it could be guillotined into two halves, trimmed and then bound (with a fantastically low-fi rubber band) to make a small booklet.

It looks amazing. There are more photos on Graham’s Flickrstream. Thanks to everyone involved.
