I think the best thing about going to an independent publishing fair is spending a few days in the company of the editors and art directors who make the magazines I love so much. Of course a magazine should stand alone as an editorial product, but sometimes it’s only when you meet the people who actually make it happen that everything clicks into place and you get a full understanding of what it’s all about.

That definitely happened for me at Indiecon a couple of weeks ago, when we got to spend a few days on the stall next door to The Irregular Times, which bills itself as “India’s first art and design newspaper”. I’d seen copies earlier this year and really liked it, but spending a couple of days alongside editors Vasudhaa Narayanan and Tarini Sethi showed exactly where the newspaper’s energy, passion and abundant sense of fun comes from.

I recorded a conversation with them at the end of the second day, and I think all their enthusiasm comes across in the audio above.
