News from Islands Catalogue
The catalogue cover referred to the ‘refugee bag’, a cheap, plaid square sack with handles made from woven nylon fibres. Disposable luggage. The text is a combination of courier and stencil. The former looks at the telegraph as a mode of communication, an exchange of information. The yellow paper stock represents the Pacific, a sunny destination for tourists. Beneath the shiny exterior is news of what happens to others; military coups, civil strife and natural disasters. The glossy artist pages feel more like a fashion magazine than something found on ‘the islands’.
