Met up for a natter with John Coe the creative director of bone-shaker magazine (lower case helvetica, before you correct my grammar Mick). Like myself he confessed to having had no design education, which I think shows - in a very positive way. Pure and uncluttered simplicity. #1 and #2 have already sold out, #3 is at the printers now. 'shaker is also produced by a micro team with zilch budget, day-jobs and kiddies to support, but the end product is as rounded as anything a big publishing house could manage. Because it isn't corporate or money driven - they dont even have any adverts, it feels very holistic. The matt paper is wholemeal but not too earthy, you feel healthy just looking at it. BP
Long Live Kitchen Table Publishing!
Had to chuckle when I spotted someone in a photo story by Tom Simpson, wearing a Sideburn Tee.
