Issue 12 of our favourite petite publication Extra Curricular is printing away as we speak. You can secure your copy by ordering now, and it will wing its way to your letterbox hot off the press on July 27.
Extra Curricular is all about people getting creative in their spare time. Whether they have a nine to five job, a fledgling business or children to keep them busy, the folks profiled in Extra Curricular like to keep the right side of their brain busy in their off-hours.
The Tall Tales edition centres around storytelling, with cover art by children’s book illustrator Erica Harrison. There’s an interview with Erica inside about her day job and her sideline – screenprinting using hand-cut paper stencils.
This issue also features three people who have created their own dream day jobs, a chat with Sally Greer at Beatnik Publishing and a peek at the work that goes into one of Louise James’ hand crafted books, as well as Emma Kidd’s mystical creatures and interviews with illustrator Patti Andrews and artist Rachel Walker. Make gingernuts and a cuppa with Martha Goes Green and indulge in a cosy winter’s afternoon reading.
With 72 pages printed in full colour with vegetable based inks on recycled stock, Extra Curricular is a pocket-sized treasure trove of inspiration. Order your copy now!
