In the throes of Olympic fever, I have been a negligent editor and blogger to say the least. Although arguably it is my personal support that led to Team GB's stomping victory (you're welcome guys). BUT Issue #4 is on its way AND there's lots of news.
Back in July 'The Hairy Issue' the debut zine project of art collective Dupe was released. Beautifully printed and curated, it mixes writing, photography and illustration on the theme of 'Hair' with humour and poignancy. Personal highlights include the photography of Jorge Antony Stride (who I used to work with at a bowling alley) and 'A Ginger Childhood' by Benedict Le Gauche (who also has red hair).

Dupe have now rolled this out to become a multi-media platform, including an online TV channel, interviewing voices from across the creative spectrum in a way that is as fun as it is evocative.
