Newsstand Magazines

Uncut and NME Originals

These were offshoots of the familiar N.M.E and Uncut magazines, with plundered material from both magazines’ long and extensive photographic and editorial back catalogues.

Each issue was themed around a different artist, band or movement. It was fascinating to get the opportunity to explore the extensive, historic picture archives of Melody Maker and N.M.E., and had great fun producing each magazine’s individual-themed identity.
