Wrap is a publication that bridges the gap between being a magazine and a product – while each themed edition comes full of interviews and features on an eclectic range of creative endeavours, it also includes ten illustrated wrapping papers made especially for that issue, printed on five double-sided pull-out sheets.
So Wrap becomes a magazine you can use, as well as
one to read and enjoy.
Founded by designers Chris Harrison and Polly Glass in September 2010 with the aim of showcasing the work of up-and-coming illustrators, Wrap is published three times a year and stocked in more than 150 shops around the world. These include London’s Tate Modern, Do You Read Me?! in Berlin, Papercut in Stockholm and MoMA PS1 in New York. Wrap also sells direct to online shoppers around the world, and has a growing list of yearly subscribers. Creative directors Chris and Polly are helped by editor Harry Glass, plus regular features writer Sarah Housley. But it is the talented contributing illustrators, as well as other freelance writers and photographers, who help to make Wrap possible.
The Wrap studio also produces a range of illustration-led stationery, including a new collection of single sheet wrapping paper, gift cards and Wrap Packs – designed to happily provide you with all you’ll need to wrap and give a gift.
Wrap magazine and all Wrap products are produced in the UK. Environmentally conscious, we print using vegetable-based inks on, 100% recycled paper and FSC-certified paper.
