Iron & Air Magazine / Issue 026
(digital included for SUBSCRIBERS)
We’ve packed this one to the brim with motoring inspired art and design from all over the globe. Grab a copy and feast your mind and eyes on the first Iron & Air Art & Design Issue.
From the paintbrush to the hacksaw, the line between creation and destruction is blurry. The impulse to reimagine our surroundings is as old as time. To make something where once nothing stood. To break it down and to build it back up. This process of destruction, restoration, reconstruction, alteration, creation, and preservation connects us to our past, present, and future and inspired us to create the Art & Design Issue.

Great magazine for motorcycle enthusiasts and people who love motorcycle art
Posted by Kim Moreton on 8th Mar 2017
A masterpiece, an in-the-moment snapshot of enthusiasm and imagination. Painstaking attention to detail, from the spot-varish cover to the typograpy. Bought a copy for my (ex)father-in-law, who is a (retired) designer for GM. He had this to say: "Hi Kim
I wanted to let you know that I received the magazine (it's actually more like a book) yesterday and I love it! It is a high quality publication with fantastic art work and some great designs.
Many, Many Thanks,"
Hope you enjoyed putting it together as much as Im enjoying leafing through it.
