Two quarterly magazines a pleasure to receive - Illustration and Printmaking Today.

This week it has been a pleasure to receive two magazines which I subscribe to. Both come out quarterly and the Summer issue of each arrived in the post this week.

For anyone interested in printmaking, illustration, art, design and finding out about related events and exhibitions, both magazines are thoroughly recommended.

Printmaking Today is the quarterly magazine in the UK for printmakers and those interested in printmaking. The magazine features profiles on printmakers as well as news on events and exhibitions and articles about the practical side of printmaking.The Summer issue features an article and interview with
Emma Mason who has recently opened a gallery in Eastbourne, East Sussex. Emma Mason British prints specialise in original prints from the post war to present day and the article explains how the business began and talks about the printmakers they represent and the decision behind now opening a gallery. Emma Mason have regularly exhibited at the Brighton Art Fair.

Illustration Magazine, also out quarterly is a beautifully produced magazine full of features on illustrators and their work. The Summer issue, just out, has a feature on illustrators who are turning their hand to make patterned fabrics and toys and other hand made items and includes work by Sussex artist, printmaker, and illustrator
Sarah Young who exhibits both at the Brighton Art Fair and at MADE the Brighton design and craft fair.

Both Printmaking Today magazine and Illustration magazine are stocked and available to buy at the Emma Mason Gallery in Eastbourne (t. 01323 727545 or see details below).
Both magazines also take subscriptions.
