It's always good getting free stuff*.

Graphic designer Patrick Fry dropped the first three issues of his new project No.Zine through our door the other day, and very lovely they are too.

No.Zine is an idependent arts zine, released in a series. The first collection, 1 to 3, features a variety of young artists, writers, photographers and illustrators. Each issue is conceptually centred around its issue number.

Pick them up at bookshops and art spaces all round London, or grab them online.

*Wonder if anyone at Phaidon, or Thames & Hudson or Laurence King reads this blog? Or, what the heck, anyone at Apple, Rapha, or Lazarides... not that we're begging. Much.
