You'll Love This Digital Issue If:
- You gotta have vinyl… or just love record stores
- You're ready to have fun!

Print Magazine's April 2012 Issue is The Play Issue, where we have fun with legos, listen to great music and "write" picture essays. This issue will explore the fun side of design and may just inspire you to take on a fun project of your own. Not to mention a showcase of the winners of our 2012 Hand Drawn Competition! These illustrations will blow you away.
The hardcopy version of this issue is available here.
