Magazine of the Week: UC Quarterly
Barely a week goes by without another blog publishing a print edition, but not all are as successful as this example from the Austin-based Under Consideration network of blogs. U.C.Quarterly reproduces material from Speak Up, Brand New, Quipsologies, The Design Encyclopedia, Word It, and FPO in 48-page summary form.
Printed using one of the Newspaper Club’s new small magazine-type formats but still on newsprint, each copy is finished with a unique cover created from printers make-ready sheets and bound with a rubber band. The title is printed across the make ready sheet (above).
As an avid reader of blogs and social media links much of the work is familiar yet long gone, having disappeared down the blog lists. So U.C.Quarterly is a handy record of recent graphics work, with careful curation from founders Bryony Gomez-Palacio & Armin Vit.
