The May/June Issue is Published and Coming Soon!

May 4, 2017



We have an update on our latest issue! Due to an unforeseen mechanical problem at our printer, the issue is being mailed a little bit late. Subscribers will receive their copies throughout the week of May 8. Apologies for the delay but we promise it will be worth the wait!


If you can't wait to see it, make sure you check out our digital edition, which is available now!


This is our highly anticipated Photography & Illustration annual, featuring nearly 100 pages of winning work by talented image-makers in Canada and around the world.


The cover was shot by LM Chabot as part of a campaign called "Still Optimist" created by Sid Lee Collective for Montreal shop PONY, and was a winner in the 2017 Photography Awards.


Some more highlights:

  • Best practices for image makers and creators as they negotiate with buyers
  • An inside look at Advertising AACE Award winner and legendary ad agency BBDO
  • An exclusive case study on the Earls restaurant rebrand by Vancouver branding firm Glasfurd & Walker
  • Highlights from our typography archive, and more!

Thanks to our print partners at Mi5 Print & Digital for their support in producing this issue, and to our paper suppliers at Ariva. Head over to our Subscribe page for digital copies, or contact customer service at assistant[at] for more details and single-copy print sales.
