I very excitedly tore open the package to reveal my copy, screen print by Rob Ryan and a lovely postcard which to my eyes appears to be a handwritten ‘thanks!’ from editors, Will Hudson and Alex Bec. I almost hope it was printed though, because I am going to recommend that everyone get themselves a copy – I’m not lending mine out, so tough – and if they have to hand sign too many they will be exhausted before they get to Issue 3!
That is a risk we will have to take because, believe me, you NEED a copy of It’s Nice That to restore your faith in publishing with proper paper, gorgeous illustrations and clever words. From first flick-through I can’t wait to read George Hardie on rulers, the interviews with photographer Peter Finch and genius accessories designer Fred Butler, not to mention spend all of a hungover Sunday morning gazing at the beautiful photographs and illustrations.
So while I am doing that, do yourself a favour and head over here to buy a copy. The limited edition screenshots are available until midnight on 30 September.
