1st Anniversary Issue: Paper Runway + Way Cool Tech

As many of you may know, Paper Runway launched last year on May 1st which means their latest issue released tomorrow (30 April 2012) will be their first anniversary issue! They tell us it's not only going to be their biggest and best issue yet, it's going to include a world first for print magazines of this kind, using iPR (Intelligent Print Recognition), so it's not to be missed!

Simply put, Documobi is a smart phone app that utilizes “intelligent Print Recognition,” (iPR). iPR creates a ‘digital’ version of a printed file and uploads it into the cloud. It allows users to scan any print with a smart phone and then be transported to videos, websites, and other rich content. Is this not exciting? Can't wait to see!

The new issue features Stuart McLachlan, who has created the hand cut paper boat wrapped around actress Sophie Lapin's shoulders for the cover, titled ‘Aurora’s Night” (image credits Simon Cardwell Photography, Sophie Lapin model/actress and Yvonne Savage Hair and Makeup). Inside you will be greeted by A Happy Death, Anthony Peters, John Murphy, BĂ©atrice Coron, Damian Barlow, Peter Callensen, Lauren Clay, Chris Gilmour, Marsha Golemac and more!  Bookmark this page for tomorrow - and remember (they're downunder) so I think we'll be able to order it a little earlier here than tomorrow)!  Yay!

Pssst! They also reveal the details of their event, The Paper Trail, a weekend celebration of all things paper – which will be held in Byron Bay, Australia from May 25 – 27, 2012. Curated by Liz Orrock of Newtown Fine Art Gallery for Paper Runway, the event will open with a paper-centric exhibition at Art Park on Friday May 25. Artists showcasing their paper wares including Beth Emily, Emma Gale, Christine Wilcox, Barry Goodman, Rob Ryan, Damian Barlow, Helen Mussellwhite, Mr Yen and Erin Petson (to name a few). All artists will contribute a portion of their sales to NAPCAN, which works to eliminate child abuse.
