Our first print issue, Strike #9 is a celebration of the sparks that fly when creative minds meet and conversations set synapses firing.
Revisiting ideas and friends from past issues to find out what’s new, as well as seeking out fresh perspectives and stories to sate our curiosity about the world and where it’s going, this issue looks both backwards and forwards for inspiration.
Printed by Roots Press in eye-popping two-colour risograph, using soy based ink and with custom illustrations, Strike is not only a stellar read, but also a thing of beauty (even if we do say so ourselves).
There are only 100 copies in this very special limited run.
