Counterpoint is a beautiful magazine of original journalism and illustration, produced and printed in Scotland. It's risograph-printed, a Japanese mechanical printing technique which layers up colours one at a time. This means every copy is slightly unique and makes the pages even more strokeable than usual.
Issue 23 looks at Failure and the "defeat, despair and defiance in the face of loss."
