Does the future of art and design actually lie in the past? It’s the subject we are exploring in our current issue the ‘Gone but not Forgotten Issue!

In 'The Gone but not Forgotten' issue we explore traditional crafts (such as macrame, automata, embroidery, papercuts and letterpress) and show how contemporary artists are using these crafts and their skills to create and influence modern art and design.

Read below for what else is in this issue!

• Our Blanket cover artist, Katherine Beefheart, hand embroidered the image for our front cover (it took a staggering 50 hours to complete!)

• Blanket's Featured Font "Redis' by designer, Vanessa Zoydberg, was inspired by the lettering found on an old, metal sugar box. (and it's a FREE download included in this issue!)

• Also included is a FREE song download called ‘Saving Grace’ by We Are Willow.

• We talk to Australian designer, Alischa Herrmann, from Bespoke Press and her 77 year old mentor Robert {Bob} Read.

• Crafter and macrame extraordinaire: Tamara Maynes

• Papercut artist: Jonathan Chapman (aka MrYen) -
• Automata (mechanical toy maker): Tory Fiterre

• DIY tutorial on Lino cuts compiled by Richard Brittain and Rebekah Nathan – the crafty duo behind Bliss In A Teacup.

And we uncover more emerging artists!
