Berry Bros. & Rudd – the return of the world’s first wine magazine

Twenty-two years after it was last published; Berry Bros. & Rudd has re-launched its No.3 magazine. Hailed as the first magazine entirely dedicated to the subject of wine, No.3 was first printed in 1954.   Named after the Company’s address at No.3 St James’s Street, the magazine was initially designed to make the company “better known to its customers”.   The content is very much in keeping with the original title, albeit with a fresh look. No.3 will be published twice per year and is available to pick up from Berry Bros. & Rudd now.   www.bbr.com

STEPHEN HAWKING BOOK SIGNED BY EDDIE REDMAYNE

Glazier Design and The Isle of Man Post Office have released a special book to mark Stephen Hawking‘s 75th birthday. Each of the 100 numbered copies is signed by Eddie Redmayne, who played the professor in the film The Theory of Everything.

The book is a special edition of Albert Einstein to Stephen Hawking, 100 Years of General Relativity, the book that accompanied the General Relativity stamp issue from the Isle of Man Post Office. It contains two full sets of the stamps, which feature Einstein, Hawking and illustrations of Hawking’s work.

The books are £250 each and are available at www.iompost.com/hawking – a large proportion of the proceeds will go to the Stephen Hawking Foundation to further the study of Cosmology and Motor Neuron Disease, particularly ALS.

Glazier Design created the Stephen Hawking Foundation branding, and as they design stamps for IOM PO, put the two clients together to produce the Gravitational Theory issue, working with Professors Hawking and Perry and Astrophysicist Sasha Haco.

Ben Glazier, who has been a Council member of the Association for many years, said “This is perhaps the proudest moment in our eighteen years. To work with one of the greatest minds of all time, on a project that will benefit people for years to come, is truly an honour; and as a childhood stamp collector, I don’t think I ever expected to be listed in Stanley Gibbons“.
