Cyclists’ Special

A great little film about a day out cycling in 1955, made by the British Rail film board.
Wowzers, just look at the space there used to be for bikes on trains back then – whatever happened?!

Worldwide Cycling Atlas out now!

Check out the 2011 Worldwide Cycling Atlas, a collection of some of the most interesting bicycle related projects and initiatives from around the world. We were very pleased to see our pals The Bristol Bike Project featured in there!

Fond (of editorial design) Zine

Three design students from the University of West England (Fanny, Sophie and Naomi) got in touch mid-2011 excitedly talking about their course in design and their passion for editorial design. I met them for a coffee and answered their questions about Boneshaker, how we set up the mag and gave our thoughts on digital publishing and so on. Here is a little more about the project:

“What started as a professional practise project for uni, soon grewinto a full colour zine, selling out at the Handmade & Bound zine fairin London, November 2011.  The content came from three UWE studentseager to find out more about editorial design. Designers responded alittle too well, providing more than enough responses for theirrequired ten minute presentation, and the girls took all that extracontent and packed it into Fond. Fond of Editorial design is hopefullythe first of many issues, with a second planned in a few months time,focusing on typography…because they’ve long since forgotten themeaning of free time!”

To see an online version of the zine, click here. The printed version is lovely, full of ideas and different papers and techniques, well worth a look at if you get the chance…
