Magma-Zine: Illustrated, Collated & Published by Maisy Summer.
A publication celebrating the illustrators, writers, graphic designers, photographers, designers that make Magma be what is is! My practice delves into illustrating, documenting & collating stories of independent venues. This publication took a focus on Magma, which stocks one of the best selections of independently published works! ‘Magma-Zine’ celebrates the creativity of the writers, publishers, illustrators, photographers, designers.. that make Magma what it is! Giving a spotlight to the wonderful small press publishing community. The project resulted in a publication, prints, and exhibition & launch at Magma MCR.
The publication was purely illustrated, showcasing the publications, interviews, & personalities, in a unique & personal way. The illustrations are playful, fun, & cheeky in style - creating a new interesting dialogue between the original & imitation. The publication is printed on a mixture of GFSmith Bier Weizen, Wild White, Natural & Bright White, creating a variety of textures. Shortlisted in STACK awards 2019 & featured in Creative Review. Creative Review: "Maisy Summer’s charming paper cut illustrations are full of character".
