The first three Le Gun cult magazines reproduced in full as one volume in 2008. Established in 2004, LE GUN is an art collective consisting of five artist illustrators (Bill Bragg, Chris Bianchi, Neal Fox, Robert Rubbish, and Steph von Reiswitz) and two designers (Alex Wright and Matt Appleton) who met as graduates at London's Royal College of Arts. As a team of artists they create idiosyncratic imagery, which blends a punk, occult, pop and surrealist aesthetic. As well as being the producers of their cult self-titled magazine, the group is internationally recognised for their enigmatic installations, design projects and art shows. The particular style they developed, in which the sum is greater than the parts, is what makes LE GUN's group aesthetic so distinctive. Their independent narrative publication provides a common ground for both emerging and established artists, illustrators, writers and poets. (Text by Bronwyn Carter) The spirit of Le Gun. " I fire my revolver early, when I leave the blockhouse broad, wearing a red and brown shirt - the dog barks wildly - and the parrot sings out in Englis."( George Grosz, 1918)
