 A Japanese Air in Venice (subtitled “The Story of a Beautiful Collision”) explores the intersection of two distinct styles of architecture, as seen through the work of architecture student Sungju Lim.

Last year Lim staged a temporary architecture installation in Venice, Italy, inspired by the style and philosophy of self-taught Japanese architect Tadao Ando (who most recently designed Venice’s beautiful Punta della Dogana Museum, in 2009.)

The digital broadsheet newspaper is laid out like a work journal, with sketches, photographic studies, and notes in French and Japanese.  

The newspaper was designed by Paris-based creative studio Faye & Gina, AKA Rocio Ortiz and Helena Kadji.

Kadji tells us: “We discovered Newspaper Club two years ago and found the concept easy and fun. Everything worked out very good, and the delivery was fast. We were very happy.”

Around the world in a broadsheet with Fern

Fern Photography Travel Newspaper by Tom Reinert

When designer Tom Reinert embarked on a round-the-world trip with his girlfriend in 2014, he collected stories from his travels on his beautiful blog, Fernweh.

It’s a German word that roughly translates to “the urge to travel'” or “longing for a place far away.” The blog is written in German, though it gets the meaning of fernweh across quite clearly, regardless of language.

Fern Photography Travel Newspaper by Tom Reinert

Reinert has now published the memories from his blog in a digital broadsheet newspaper, Fern (German for “far”). “Because our friends and families liked our stories so much, and because I wanted to perpetuate the text on paper, I decided to print them,” he says.

Fern Photography Travel Newspaper by Tom Reinert

“I found the newspaper format perfect for that – big trip, big format. To include more pictures I combined the newspaper with a smaller inlay, where photos are printed on a contrasting glossy paper. We’re back home for almost a year now and now we enjoy re-reading the stories and browsing through the paper to revive the memories.”

You can flip through Fern in The Newsagent and keep up with Reinert’s other projects on his website. Thank you for printing with us!

An illustrated travel guide for far-flung adventures

One Day Travel Guide Newspaper by Claudia Castrone of Potpurri Berlin

Some minds wander. Others map out enchanting itineraries and doodle hypothetical luggage. Illustrator Claudia Castrone falls into the latter category, and we love her imaginative take on the travel guide.

One Day Travel Guide Newspaper by Claudia Castrone of Potpurri Berlin

Part of Berlin-based artist collective Popurrí, Castrone created digital tabloid One Day to coincide with Popurrí’s recent exhibition “One Day I’ll Travel The World.” Tasked with imagining a far-flung destination, Castrone chose to evoke the “longing for something or some place, but you are not really sure what or where.”

One Day Travel Guide Newspaper by Claudia Castrone of Potpurri Berlin

“The girl in my illustrations is packing her bag to travel to a tropical island, the moon, an imaginary place, the future, the North Pole. Maybe she went or maybe dreaming about it is enough.”

Adventurous armchair travellers can request a copy of One Day by writing to ccastrone@gmail.com.

Newspaper of the Month: Year in Refuse

Year in Refuse illustration newspaper by Alex Westgate

Our Newspaper of the Month for February is Year in Refuse from illustrator Alex Westgate. Proof that one person’s trash is another’s treasure, this digital tabloid newspaper is a collection of rejected concepts – ideas that were “too weird, unsettling and otherwise unpublishable,” says Westgate. We love them all!

Year in Refuse illustration newspaper by Alex Westgate

When the Toronto-based artist’s work isn’t getting rejected, it’s being used by the likes of the BBC, Reader’s Digest, AT&T, and the Washington Post. Westgate says he enjoys making images that are “both optimistic and irreverent” and word is he’s been working on a new zine.

Year in Refuse illustration newspaper by Alex Westgate

A few copies of Year in Refuse are still available for sale in Westgate’s web shop and he’s throwing in an awesome “Bad Seed” patch with every order. Now, who could say no to that? Thanks for printing with us!

Asphalt Chronicles visits Dakar, Senegal

Asphalt Chronicles Issue 02: Dakar. A newspaper by Kevin Couliau documenting pick up basketball in Senegal.

We first featured photographer Kevin Couliau on our blog last year, when the debut issue of his stunning basketball zine, Asphalt Chronicles, won Newspaper of the MonthSince then, Couliau has made two trips to Dakar, Senegal to document a playground culture where he says “the competition is tough – tough enough to generate NBA caliber athletes such as Makhtar N’Diaye, the first Senegalese player who reached the NBA.” Beyond that, it’s a culture where love for the sport has generated incredible projects like SEED, which launched the first basketball student-athlete academy in Africa.

Asphalt Chronicles Issue 02: Dakar. A newspaper by Kevin Couliau documenting pick up basketball in Senegal.

The latest issue of Asphalt Chronicles is a thoughtful exploration of the game as it is played on the courts of Dakar, with stories from players (including NBA athletes Makhtar N’Diaye and Gorgui Dieng) alongside 36 beautiful photographs by Couliau. The publication is a powerful tribute to a playground culture that will, Couliau says, “impose [itself] as the future of basketball, and maybe faster than you think.”

Every purchase of the the magazine comes with a free screen print of one of Kevin Couliau’s photos from Senegal, by French artist Olivier Marescaux. Pick up a copy soon – the last issue of Asphalt Chronicles sold out and we’ll bet this limited edition run won’t be available for long, either.

It’s Makeup Time!

Amy Lesko It's Make Up Time Activity Book Newspaper

Newspapers aren’t just for reading. They’re also for drying shoes, wrapping giftssharpening knives, and wearing on your head. So there’s no reason why you couldn’t put makeup on them, too. It’s Makeup Time! is a digital tabloid that’s designed for just that – though crayons can stand in for lipstick and eyeshadow.

Amy Lesko It's Make Up Time Activity Book Newspaper

It’s Makeup Time! was created by Amy Lesko, makeup fanatic and graphic design student at De Montfort University in Leicester, UK. Newspapers are always fun to scribble on, but Amy’s wonderful illustrations make the experience extra joyful. She tells us more about her project:

It’s Make Up Time! is a disposable activity book for a younger audience. It features playful imagery with spaces for the reader to join in. From drawing on a funky hairstyle to coloring in a lovely big face – it’s a make up adventure!

Amy Lesko It's Make Up Time Activity Book Newspaper

The process began from a university brief – “dot dash”. I have always loved illustrating cosmetics and beauty items and considered the way people apply make up. The way we dash on mascara and dot on our blusher all seemed to fit with the initial brief.

Amy Lesko It's Make Up Time Activity Book Newspaper

I chose a newspaper format out of pure intrigue– I have always wanted to see my work in newsprint! The activity book quality worked hand in hand with the size of a tabloid.

Amy Lesko It's Make Up Time Activity Book Newspaper

Printing with Newspaper Club has been an absolute pleasure (never a chore). The site is easy to use and the InDesign templates make everything straightforward.

Pick up a copy of It’s Makeup Time! in the The Newsagent and get doodling. You can also spy on Amy’s works in progress on her blog and find her on Twitter and Instagram. Thanks for printing with us!

Newspaper of the Month: Places and Unknown Faces

Newspaper of the Month January 2016: Audrey Krako Photography Newspaper

Our Newspaper of the Month for January is Places and Unknown Faces by photographer Audrey Krako. She printed a digital tabloid newspaper to accompany her very first photography exhibition, currently on display at The Capitol Horsham.

Newspaper of the Month January 2016: Audrey Krako Photography Newspaper

It features a mix of fashion and documentary photography from her travels along the historic Route 66 highway, where as everyone knows is the place to get your kicks. Even better if you can do so with a wardrobe from emerging designers like The Whitepepper, Lorelai H, Rakel Blom.

Newspaper of the Month January 2016: Audrey Krako Photography Newspaper

Audrey chose newsprint because it “adds to the timeless feeling of the Route 66 series.” With her eye for the pastel-hued details of motels, laundromats and ice cream shops, she has us longing to hit the open road.

We’re sure Audrey’s work looks even better in real life, so catch “Places and Unknown Faces” at The Capitol Horsham through 14 February 2016.
