craft&design supports the aims of Anti Copying In Design
I buy your magazine from my local newsagent, as I like to support my local shops.
I have been reading it since day one when it was a simple few pages affair and I've watched it develop into a brilliant and inspirational magazine which helps me in my work and design a great deal.
