Counterpoint is a quarterly independent magazine featuring original writing and beautiful illustration. Each issue has a unique theme which contributors respond to with their own ideas, resulting in an eclectic array of quality content.
We pride ourselves on showcasing brilliant illustrators alongside the work of the best new writers and journalists. Counterpoint was recently shortlisted for Stack's Best use of Illustration award.
Each issue of Counterpoint is hand bound and risograph printed in Edinburgh using soy-based inks and recycled paper, with quirks of printing that mean each copy of the magazine is unique. All our profits are shared equally between contributors.
Counterpoint is edited by illustrator and printmaker Bethany Thompson and journalist Sam Bradley. We founded Counterpoint as an online project in 2013, and began printing as an independent magazine two years later.
