making the cover

This year’s competition yielded more eager entrants than ever, and it was a delight to see so many imaginative and varied executions.

editor’s letter

BEREN NEALE EDITOR A devotee of me time, the ed had the best day in Bristol’s Saint Andrew’s park in scorching solitude this June – Wolf Hall in hand, a couple of cold cans within reach, wistfully getting burned to a crisp. Glorious. MARK WYNNE ART EDITOR Mark asked Cliff to write something for him here, and all he got were a couple of rows of Occae vere que parum rest, optiisq uident que quo quia porepudae omni tem quiscim laborest incil [That’ll teach you – Cliff]. CLIFF HOPE OPERATIONS EDITOR The first-person shooter and cultural phenomenon Fortnite finally made an appearance on the family’s games console.
