CR in Print

Thanks for visiting the CR website, but if you are not also reading CR in print you're missing out. Our March issue is an illustration special with features on Clifford Richards, Pick Me Up, the relationship between illustrators and writers, the making of the cover of the New York Times Magazine and a powerful essay by Lawrence Zeegen calling on illustrators to become more engaged with the wider world and accusing the profession of withdrawing "from the big debates of our society to focus on the chit-chat and tittle-tattle of inner-sanctum nothingness".

The best way to make sure you receive CR in print every month is to subscribe – you will also save money and receive our award-winning Monograph booklet every month. You can do so here.
