WHO WE DID IT WITH:
WHAT WE’VE DONE
Mercy Magazine is where everything began: a self-published ’gallery on paper’, that featured writing and image commissions from below-the-radar creative talent – orginally Liverpool-based, but which soon went nationwide. Having begun life as a crude, photocopied affair -almost exclusively produced by founders Doug Kerr and Joe Bramall- it soon picked up national press, an influential readership and talented contributors from all over the UK. As it evolved and matured, it picked up press from the likes of Dazed & Confued, The Face, the Guardian, BBC Radio 1 and 4 and won influential backing from the legendary broadcaster Tony Wilson.
Shown here are the final three issues (about 5 redesigns later), the last of which (’Anticlimax’) was circulated at the opening of Liverpool’s year as Capital of Culture.
