    Very sweet. Do you know if they sell the magazine or is it just a PDF?

    I’m not sure actually, was wondering that myself. Would love to see this in print.

    Me too man. It would look sweet. I can’t even find a contact for who did it.

    I started the magazine at KCAI.
    We’re in the process of making a website for the magazine, and photographing the print version.
    Ampersand was printed in a limited run of 2,000 copies for the school and kansas city community.
    Issues are available for sale. Details will be posted on the website, once it is up and running.

    Ramzy Masri, myself, and a few other students at the Kansas City Art Institute put this publication together to connect our student body, our faculty, and our surrounding community. We published this in actual newsprint, and Ramzy is putting together a website for it, and future issues to follow.
