Editor(s): Simon Johnston, Mark Holt, Hamish Muir and Michael Burke.
“The editors took a modernist stance – each issue was at the cutting edge of what was possible with typesetting, reprographics and print, produced at a time when the industry was transitioning from analogue to digital. The first 6 issues and aspects of the 7th issue were analogue based. Each of the printed issues was 16pp A4 format with 4pp cover and 8pp semi-transparent jacket. The typeface used throughout was Scangraphic Unica.” Mark Holt, Editor
