E.W.T.M, Adbusters, Aperture Mag and More Rumlad Zines!
Wednesday 30th May
True to good form, the postman has made frequent visits to the No Guts No Glory shop over the last week! Most notably to deliver this awesome bunch to us - E.T.W.M (a brilliant Photography Zine), the latest issues of Adbusters and Aperture Magazines and a load more epic RUMLAD zines!
First up, our very good friend and awesome photographer Samuel Bradley sent us a few copies of his collaborative zine, Escape To Which Mountain...
The first thing to note about E.W.T.M is that the print quality is superb! Inside the 140gsm Recycled Card cover you'll find no less than 76-pages of full colour photography, featuring work from nine contributors that explores outdoor and travel related themes.
E.W.T.M showcases photography made in the UK, Europe and as far as Alaska, with accompanying text and a short article about the nostalgia that comes with owning your own Black Widow slingshot.
Volume one of what is destined to become a regular collection of photographic works features a grand total of 9 photographers! So not only is it a fantastic visual treat that'll get you planning your own summer adventures, it's also a great reference tool for budding photographers!
Next up, the mighty Adbusters Magazine!
Adbusters is a global network of culture jammers and creatives working to change the way information flows, the way corporations wield power, and the way meaning is produced in our society, this reader supported magazine offers incisive philosophical articles, and world wide activist commentary addressing issues ranging from genetically modified foods to media concentration. In addition, their annual campaigns like Buy Nothing Day and Digital Detox Week have made them a key activist networking group.
Ultimately, though, Adbusters is an ecological magazine, dedicated to examining the relationship between human beings and their physical and mental environment. “We want a world in which the economy and ecology resonate in balance. We try to coax people from spectator to participant in this quest. We want folks to get mad about corporate disinformation, injustices in the global economy, and any industry that pollutes our physical or mental commons”
This is quite simply put, a great magazine. This Issue explores the power of autonomous spaces and is packed with serious food for thought as well as some awesome photo-journalism and graphic design.
Keeping up with the apparent photography theme, allow us to introduce Aperture Magazine to No Guts No Glory.
For those of you that don't know - Aperture is brilliant! Another not-for-profit magazine, the Aperture Foundation was founded in 1952 by the likes of photographers Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange and to this day remains dedicated to promoting photography.
The latest issue includes photographic works by the great Martin Parr, as well as Carol Naggar and some rather intriguing animal portraits by Daniel Naude.
Our most recent package, which arrived just as I was taking the snaps of the above items was sent our way by the adventurous Steve Larder, aka Rumlad
We've been stocking various issues of Steve's zines here at NGNG for almost a year now, and find ourselves regularly pestering him to send us more! Each issue and variation of Rumlad is literally crammed with stories of Steve's often humorous adventures, accompanied by his awesome bold black and white illustrations!
This particular parcel saw us back in stock of issues 4 and 5, as well as Rum-Muffel, Steve's collaborative zine with Morgen Muffel.
On it's way to NGNG, a top up of Sam Clifford-Harding's photography zine, Beside The Point, as well as an eagerly anticipated bundle by Mr Jack Teagle and Miss Donya Todd !
Come on down to Handmade Arcade on Saturday and be sure to take a browse through the ever - changing world that is No Guts No Glory!
