After a break Illustrated Ape returned in limited editions of 200. Issue 29 came in a printed Takeaway Gallery bag with a 24 track CD “Torchsongs & Fire Hoses” by Christian David and Noko. Issue 30 is the First Love Issue.
Established in 1998, Illustrated Ape features 100% original creative fiction, pictures, poetry, pop - and never, ever reviews! It has won popular acclaim, most notably the Creative Review 'Best In Book' award for design, and was one of only five British magazines selected for the Jam Anglo-Japanese exhibition. It is widely regarded as the most exciting and influential creative, illustration, graffiti, and writing magazine to come out of the British urban underground, and is a primary resource for anyone seeing insights into popular culture.
