Issue 68 November 2013

This month we have an art feature from LA-based graphic illustrator Sara Saedi. Sara’s work is sharp and elegant, with a real focus placed on colour palettes and symmetry. As you know we like to mix up our art from one month to the next, so it’s a refreshing change for us.

Loads of engaging articles and reviews this month, but in particular I would recommend reading John Maiden’s exploration of Basic Income, Max Everett and Geoff Mackay’s piece on Don Valley Stadium, and Jay Baker’s article on mainstream media.

We are also proud to feature an in-depth interview with Canadian classical collective Esmerine, who will be playing at an event hosted by us in conjunction with Opus Acoustics at Sheffield Cathedral on Saturday 7th December. Featuring members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Silver Mt Zion, trust me when I say this is not a show to be missed. Tickets are priced at £13 and can be bought on the Sheffield Cathedral website.

If you want to get involved in Now Then or chat about anything featured in the magazine, drop me a line.
