Illustrated Ape launches its A-Z issue this week, with guest art direction by New Future People creative director Marcus Walters. The group has commissioned work from many previously unpublished young illustrators and ‘let them run free’, says Walters. The illustrators’ ‘freehand, purist’ approach prompted him to ‘disregard the Apple Mac and focus on more traditional production methods like Letraset, hand-drawn type, stickers and glue’, Walters adds. The A-Z issue is available at Borders, Waterstones and Magma, priced £3.50.
