It's a wrap!

Could this be the most interactive print magazine ever? London based is already on it's third issue. They work with talented illustrators and provide interviews about their process and inspiration. The added delight to this magazine is that it's printed in a large format without any fixed bindings so that it can all be recycled guessed it, wrapping paper! Brilliant!
