8 Faces: very, very soon

Article illustration for 8 Faces: very, very soon

I realise it’s been quite a while since I announced the coming of my magazine project 8 Faces, and I thought it was time to post a quick update. It’s taken a long while to come together (which is inevitable for a side project that only receives the odd week here and there) but the wait is almost over: it’s being printed as we speak and will be released in around two weeks from now.

I haven’t got an exact date yet because I’m still sorting out a few logistical things with the printer, like packaging materials and shipping costs. However, once all that has been finalised, you’ll hear about it first here (or if you follow me on Twitter).

In the meantime, and to prove that this is actually happening, here are a few photos of the final proof:
