Print! Tearing it Up

Some of the publications on display at 'Print! Tearing it up' at Somerset House

Print! Tearing it up, is an exhibition about Independent British magazines and their impact. It covers a large range of publications, from the 1914 Vorticist journal ‘Blast’ through to contemporary publications and DIY zines.

There are some noticeable omissions in the exhibition, and the attempt to show connections between publications and some of the people behind them is frustratingly patchy. However the exhibition serves as a way of helping to bring some context to the current indie publishing scene in the UK, and is a great way of discovering new titles.

In amongst the titles on display was Issue 2 of ‘British Values’ by Kieran Yates, and designed by us.
