For the Spring 2014 issue of Printed Pages we're ringing in some changes, the first of which is our brand spanking new spine. Which is a direct result of the second big change; that we've upped the page count from 76 to 128. Kind of a big deal.

Inside we speak to designer and illustrator Lotta Nieminen about her favourite design objects, visit the studio of fashion designer Aitor Throup, interview long-term Radiohead collaborator Stanley Donwood about the stories that inspire him and have a good old natter with the team from Modern Toss. There’s features on unorthodox sports photography, gallery invigilators and Lesley Arfin waxes lyrical on the theme of Nice.

We also got Rookie's Editor-in-Chief Tavi Gevinson to discuss doing things differently with illustrator Minna Gilligan, spent a weekend with Richard Turley as he designed a special edition of 'SUP, and pestered illustrator Jean Jullien about the ugliest thing he loves.

Italian photographer Maurizio Di Iorio gave up a career in advertising to become a full-time photographer. He’s shot repeatedly for VICE Italy where his penchant for beautiful women in a state of undress has served him well. He’s also set up his own photography magazine, Disturber. We sought him out for his beautiful still-lifes and asked him to shoot our first photographic cover.
Patrick Kyle is an illustrator we’ve featured incessantly on the website having found him through his self-published zine Wowee Zonk. The Canadian image-maker has a knack for creating surreal images riddled with irony and bursting with colour that have found him fans at The New York Times and Bloomberg View. We asked him to illustrate Lesley Arfin’s thoughts on Nice.
Once upon a time Lesley Arfin worked for VICE, until she decided to write a book, work in retail, go to India and then sign on for a while. Now she’s a senior writer for HBO’s wildly successful Girls, where she pens some of the wittiest scripts on modern television. She told us all about her deeply personal experiences of High School, slang and the word Nice. They’re funny.
Brooklyn-based photographer Laurel Golio has a degree in Visual Anthropology from Smith College, New York which means she’s got a pretty good handle on the evolution of creative types throughout history. She’s also great at documenting creative types in the here and now, which is why we sent her to photograph designer Lotta Niemenen in her studio habitat.
We first started to follow Robert Hunter when we read his comic, Luna, in Nobrow’s A Graphic Cosmogony. His sensitive storytelling and beautiful image-making had us hooked from the start. Since then he’s gone on to produce several stunning works of graphic fiction and some excellent editorial illustration. We can’t get enough of him, so asked him to illustrate the history of the Eames' for our new Essentials feature.
Luke Stephenson is a photographer famed for shooting winged creatures and his self-published book The Incomplete Dictionary of Show Birds won him fans both inside our offices and across the world at large. When he’s not photographing flashy wildlife he’s on the hunt for the UK’s best 99 ice cream or, in this case, snapping the portraits of invigilators in some of London’s top museums and galleries. He’s also a lovely chap.
Dan Wilton is as fast-living as photographers come, regularly jetting off for weeks on end to hang out with some of the world’s most exciting musicians and document their rockstar antics. That said he’s also good at finding subjects that aren’t quite so wild, like American Football fans, and turning them into objects of curiosity and intrigue for the rest of us to marvel at. For us he shot fashion designer Aitor Throup in his east London studio.
When Bruno Drummond and Gemma Tickle get together the results are always arresting. They’re the perfect pairing of set designer and photographer, creating images with a strong, focussed aesthetic. We’ve yet to see them collaborate on anything we weren’t big fans of, and letting them loose on 12 pages of the magazine seemed like a no-brainer. They’ve done some lovely work on the theme of repetition.
Roy Kesey was raised in northern California and lives with his wife and children in Maryland. His short stories, essays, translations and poems have appeared in more than a hundred magazines and anthologies, including Best American Short Stories and McSweeney’s, so we’re honoured to welcome him for Printed Pages’ first piece of short fiction.
If you’ve read Printed Pages before you’ll already be familiar with Jake Green and you’ll know why we love to work with him. It's always a pleasure to collaborate with such an interested photographer. In fact we enjoy it so much that we got him back for this issue to photograph artist and long-time Radiohead collaborator Stanley Donwood down a dark alley in Fleet Street.
Jean Jullien is an illustrator par excellence whose work continually delights us. He’s worked with almost every editorial client worth drawing for to the point that he’s become the number one go-to-guy for satirical imagery. For this issue of Printed Pages we didn’t ask him to draw anything, we just pestered him about an ugly object he’s fond of.
