Flicking Glass Snails is a 2012 Nieves publication composed of improvised drawings by Rob Churm. In this zine, Churm uses layers to create black and white drawings that are filled with movement. It arises the question of what effect do these motifs and patterns have in our everyday lives and…

I have a book of images being published by Museums Press in May. 
Museums Press are the same people behind Good Press Gallery and I’m thrilled to be working with them on this new book. 
Phasing collects 25 new images plus reprints of my now out-of-print zine “Don’t Break the Oath” and the “Untitled Mini Comic” I created for SPX 2013 which was also collected in New Comics #2. 
Look for it later this spring. 

We’ve been working on a book with the amazing Patrick Kyle for our publishing imprint Museums Press. Get ready, it looks GREAT!

WEBSHOP UPDATE - Books

The heaviest part of the website, literally. Big books in this week. First pictured, Third Reich by Erik Van Der Weidje. We’ve got a range of titles in from his imprint 4478zine, always great to get a package from him. Next, a really, really impressive book, Thought Experiments In Graphic Design Education from Books from the Future. This books is massive, 330 pages, all riso, all amazing. Some big hitting contributors too.

Totally out of the blue we’ve receive Lacunas by Jasmine Isa Pugh, a lovely prose and image book, very subtle, very nice.

And finally, pictured here at the bottom is These Days by Michael St John, an amazing book, one of a few from KARMA we have in. Others are from Brice Marden, Paul Schumann and Joshua Abelow.

WEBSHOP UPDATE - Zines

Plenty in here this month, all pretty black and white! Top we’ve got Nathaniel Walpole’s new comic ‘Isaac’. It came straight from the printer, into his hands, into the shop, its fresh! Next, we’ve got copies of Noel Freibert’s The Hole. This is solid stuff. Great printing, great comics. This guy knows what he’s doing. Glasgow dweller Tom Joyes dropped off his abstract photozine ‘Wish You Were Where?’, we saw a preview of this a while back and urged him to print it, its not disappointing in the slightest!!

Fiiiiiiinally, from GP staffer, Nick Lynch. Nicko! Lynchy! Its a good one, a slim little 12 page funny one, with collages and compositions, purple and red, really great, super cheap!

WEBSHOP UPDATE - Periodicals and Other Goods

Not a lot added to these two sections on the website this week, but what has been added is up there with the best!

The top two images are of Glasgow prose, poetry and art magazine, The Burning Sand Vol.3, always, always great! Bottom we have an artist edition from a performance by Morgan Cahn. Titled The Onion Cellar, this little guy is a letterpress postcard with a wooden shard in a vile. Rrrrrreal nice feel to it.

ACT QUICK SHARP!

A new show from Glasgow based artist Scott Caruth opens next week at The New Glasgow Society. A really incredible project from a great photographer AND its at one of the most underused venues in Glasgow - we can’t wait!

*

'Molatham' is a new solo exhibition which looks at the role of studio portraiture photography in occupied Palestine by Glasgow-based artist Scott Caruth. 'Molatham' literally translates as “to cover ones face” and the term is used to describe those fighting both violently and non violently against Israel's occupation of Palestine.

“Documenting resistance to the occupation can be problematic and anybody hoping to do so must be careful not to photograph anybodies face, as proof of a demonstrators participation could lead to their imprisonment or worse. As a result of this, images of balaclava-clad, faceless entities have come to dominate the aesthetic of this conflict. Examining Palestinian studio portraiture opens up a fresh perspective of a people whose identity is too often abstracted by outsiders’ images of conflict. Furthermore, looking at found studio portraiture creates a unique opportunity to look at the subjects in ways that they have chosen to be depicted. One use of Palestinian studio portraiture takes the form of Martyr posters. The only time a resistance fighter’s identity is made public is when he or she is killed or imprisoned. In this instance their faces appear all over the city walls in the form of martyr posters or murals. Posters are also made for civilians killed in the conflict. The posters represent studio portraiture’s direct social function and political purpose and their depictions of their subjects highly contradict the images of them that we have been accustomed to by the western media.”

The show will present work from a Nablus based graphic design company who specialise in martyr and political prisoner iconography alongside a collection of studio portraits collected throughout the West Bank.

Exhibition preview at 7pm on Thursday 10th April .

The show will run between 10th - 24th April and will be open each day between 10am and 5pm.

New Glasgow Society , 1307 Argyle Street, Glasgow.

HERE IT IS! On Friday 4th April 2014, we recorded created The Paper and recorded The Paper FM LIVE! at The Lighthouse in Glasgow, as part of the excellent exhibition ‘It’s Not Very Nice That’ curated by Neil McGuire. OK, so, we’ve done our best, you’ll soon see why rather than fumbling with technology, we stick to photocopied pamphlets and bits of paper bound together. Anyway, welcome Alex Synge to the fold of guests on The Paper and you still have a regular reading from Nicholas Ainsworth. We’re also joined by Hill52, a new radio station at the GSA.
Two computers, two sets of speakers, one microphone, PEOPLE, lots of fun. Thats the sound quality you’re looking at here. Above is the zine we made with visitors on the night, and the Hill52 radio gang. Give the recording a whirl, get a zine in your mailorder. Be quick though, this guy is limited to just 30 copies!
