They broke the mould when they made this issue’s cover star Jimmy Edgar.
Larry Rostant's portrait of Jimmy Edgar is psychedelic, freaky, funky — and that’s not just his music. With a life well lived that’s reflected in the extraordinary scope of his albums and DJ sets, he’s not afraid to be different — and celebrates that difference.
A celebration of creativity, freedom and diversity is something that dance music should be about, but is something all too often lost in the chase for filthy lucre. Jimmy’s a star like they used to make, someone with something to say, and it seems that now more of us are listening than ever.

Chris Garbutt's long-awaited debut picture book, It's a Groovy World, Alfredo! written by Sean Taylor, is published by Walker on 4th June.
Poor Alfredo is a frog who just can't dance. No matter how hard his best friend Marty (a smooth talking fly) tries to teach him all the fancy dance moves - all he ever does is Jump! Jump! Jump! It's just not cool! Or… is it?
Chris' use of rich colours with subtle washes, combined with his simple yet expressive characters gives this heart-warming story a really unique feel. Here's a preview of his gorgeous illustrations.
Garry Walton was delighted to be asked to illustrate the cover of ‘Channel Shore’ by Tom Fort. Garry worked with the design team at Simon and Schuster to create the cover art for Tom’s previous title ‘The A303 - Highway To The Sun’ and was thrilled to be asked to illustrate this next book in the series.
‘Channel Shore’ takes the reader on a fascinating, discursive journey from east to west, to find out what the English Channel means to us and what is so special about the English seaside. We love Garry’s cover illustration - it conjours up memories of lazy summer days at the beach!
Whilst keeping in line with the same visual language as recent works, Sam produced an experimental series in portraiture that captures the broad achievements of these well known scientists.
After graduating in 2011 Sam has constantly pushed fresh subject matter into his work and for this series wanted to combine both style and substance as opposed to leaning solely on style. Sam’s commissioned work is predominantly non portrait so wanted to strengthen the portfolio and appeal to a wider range of clients.
This is the first book published by the culture magazine; a book marketed as the 'bible of creative advice'. Miss Led's portraits of Alex Gibney and Kalle Lasn grace the inside pages - she says "I really enjoyed working in macro detailing on these illustrations".
Diana Mayo has created some beautiful black and white images for The Owl and Pussycat.
Her lovely illustration work was much appreciated at Bologna and London Book Fairs.
