Illustrator David McMillan documents a bike trip from Cork to Derry, along the West coast of Ireland. Through this journey, David comes to question these parts of Ireland and his own personal connection to them, in a post-Brexit environment which has left many Northern Irish people considering their 'Irishness' in a new light.

Belfast-based photographer Billy Woods caught our eye through his self-published zines capturing the faces of Belfast DIY music venues. With the same energy behind the camera, Billy found himself in Reykjavik, Iceland, where he came to learn through conversations with locals, of genetic ties between Irish and Icelandic people. From behind the camera, this trip saw Billy documenting the architecture, landscapes, and people of Reykjavik, delving in to their city and gaining an understanding of the ways that these two cultures have been interwoven, be it through shared DNA or shared experiences of the harsh economic struggles. The resulting zine, ‘Papar’ is a beautifully crafted and considered photo book that we were delighted to have produced.

Ross Carvill’s illustrations possess an energy and personality that stands out amongst the best of them. In April of 2020, we invited Ross to do some live drawing on our instagram, where Ross drew creations that merged animals and objects based on viewers’ suggestions, and we loved them so much that we thought they needed to be printed! “Mystical Magical Maths” collects some of our favourites, in this zine that’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

'1-900-660-GALS' by No Bad News Risograph zine. Edition of 75.
About the Project ‘1-900-660-GALS’ celebrates 80s women's wrestling phenomenon 'GLOW' the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Through the combined visuals of the four talented artists of No Bad News, colourful characters, strong women, and over-the-top comedy sketches are brought to light in this once-off publication packed with action.
Famously, most of the performers on the television show’s all-women roster of wrestlers were actresses, models, dancers or stunt women hoping to enter show business. The zine captures their larger than life characters and memorable moments by visualising several of the choreographed bouts seen on the show.
A huge, stylistic spectrum of typography, graphics and illustration, with fluorescents and overlays capturing the 1980’s aesthetic that was so integral to the show, and considered finishing details added to the zine which embrace the risograph print process wholeheartedly.
