The Paris Issue

Following the huge success of LE GUN Nr.1, the magazine that brought budding artists work together in an extraordinary display of illustrative and narrative talent, a second edition (LE GUN 2) was released in 2006.

This edition comprises of not only new artists work, but also pieces by established artists such as Sir Peter Blake and Alan Kitching. Described by the editors Robert Rubbish, Bill Bragg and Neal Fox as “a spattering Uzi of narrative illustration and absurd wordage, combining art from the old guard with an explosive smorgasbord of emerging international talent”, it was an eagerly awaited sequel.

Included in the second edition is previously unseen work by
Sir Peter Blake, as well as submissions from Glen Baxter, the Brothers Quay, Richard Cork, George Melly and Sara Fanelli. There are also more pieces from emerging new talent, including selected submissions from art students at the RCA where at the time of publishing the editors were completing their master’s degrees.

128pp B/W & 4 colour sections. Published at the Royal College of Art by LE GUN Publishing 2006. Printed in Holland by Lecturis on 'Cyclus' 100% recycled paper, rubber-stamped fold-out front cover.
