Varoom 41 No Narrative

From feminist medical illustration to infographics on the scale of gun crime in the USA, the latest issue of Varoom magazine finds new illustration that goes beyond traditional storytelling.

Illustrator Matthew Richardson responded to the issue with a bold cover design, clashing elements from natural history, science and maths in four vivid colourways.
With art direction by Fraser Muggeridge studio, Varoom’s ‘no narrative’ issue presents projects including the revival of Buenos Aires’ typographic poster tradition and the first effort to map the shadowy floor of the seabed.
Editor Olivia Ahmad says: “Illustrators are brilliant at telling stories, but they do so much more besides. For hundreds of years they have worked at the cutting edge of science and technology – making maps and diagrams and sharing new discoveries –and they still are. Today, illustrators are helping us making sense of our world with individual voices that we can trust in our post-truth climate”.
