Drawing together writers, researchers, academics, enthusiasts, designers, artists and curators, each issue of Paperweight takes a timely theme related to visual and material culture, and uses it as a starting point, or an end point, or something in-between, to explore the territory from differing vantage points.
Due for publication in Autumn 2011, the third issue of Paperweight: A Newspaper of Visual and Material Culture is themed around Texture. The newspaper’s editors are keen to hear proposals for contributions from designers and design historians who work with and around texture – from the smooth and the shiny, to the rough and the hairy; from fibre and fabric, to the waxed and the lacquered; and everything else.
Deadline for Proposals: 15 July 2011
Deadline for Submissions: 15 September 2011
