Wrap is a large format design and illustration publication based in the UK. Co-founders Chris Harrison and Polly Glass describe Wrap as a design magazine with a double purpose. The large format pages are printed with interviews and features on one side, and exquisite prints by independent artists on the other. Once read, the pages that can be pulled out and reused as wrapping paper – providing exposure for the artists and prolonging the life of the magazine.
A smaller, compact version of the magazine as well as an exclusive range of wrapping papers designed by some of Wrap’s favorite independent designers is also on the market.
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.
