Incoming: The Big Picture Issue 12 now available to download!


Ahead of the print edition being available to purchase online from Magcloud, you can now download issue 12 of The Big Picture to enjoy in its full small screen glory. Ok so it doesn’t smell as nice as the print version, but is still rather tasty.

The January/February 2011 issue of The Big Picture Magazine is entitled ‘The Big Society’ and is themed around ideas of Oppression, Uprising and the Cinema of The Masses.

Along with the usual roundup of classic film posters, features include a look at Ralphy’s prized Red Rider BB Gun as an evocative cinematic object, a location focus on Beijing, 1000 words about The Everlasting Influence of Night of the Living Dead, and a profile on Lisbon based painter and illustrator Luis Melo.

By Gabriel Solomons

Gabriel's earliest cinematic memory was believing a man could fly in Richard Donner's original (and best) Superman. Following numerous failed attempts at pursuing a career as a caped crusader (mild vertigo didn't help), he subsequently settled down into the far safer – but infinitely less exciting – world of editorial design. A brief stint at the Independent newspaper in London sharpened his skills but cemented his desire to escape the big smoke forever, choosing to settle in the west country. He set up the arts and culture magazine 'Decode' in 2003 and currently edits and art directs the Big Picture magazine. When asked by mates what his favourite film is he replies The Big Lebowski while when in the presence of film afficianados he goes all poncy and says Fellini's 8 1/2.
