PRINTED PAGES #6: the summer issue


PRINTED PAGES is made by the team of the very succesful and extinct art magazine It's Nice That.
Printed Pages is more about design, illustration and photography. It is very much loved by readers and magazine makers; in the interviews we publish here on the blog with editors from magazines Printed Pages is often mentioned in their list of inspiring magazines.

In this summer issue the incredibly beautiful drawings of biologist Ernst Haeckel, an interview with the "Michelangelo of custom decorative lettering" Marian Bantjes, the existence or non-existence of children's illustrators and much more.

Here is a flip through video we made of this issue:



This is what other people say:

Michael Bojkowski (Magpile.com): It’s Nice That re-engineered their existing title with a new format, new team, new cover price and spanky new name to become instantly 110% more accessible—matching thoroughly engaged editorial with a suitably flexible design aesthetic. A worthy match to the website, podcast and assorted activities It’s Nice That have become cherished for.

Roman Ruska (Magpile.com): We really like the extroverted, slightly ironic (or just plain funny) personality of it. It has an uplifting and inspiring character that is highly contagious. Especially for designers and illustrators. And the interns love the fair copy price!

Steve Watson (Stack Magazines): Printed Pages is one of those magazines that knows exactly why it’s in print. I think it comes in part from having a vast digital reach (via the It’s Nice That blog) so in a sense there’s no real *need* for them to be in print. That must focus the mind in editorial meetings and the result is a magazine that makes the most of its form with beautiful big images and an effortless pacing of stories from long, in-depth opinion to quicker, lighter Q&As, all suffused with a distinctly Printed Pages sense of fun.
