In addition to film, Smith was interested in using publishing as a tool for presenting WilliWear collections and values. In 1986, he worked with his friend Kim Hastreiter, co-founder of Paper magazine, to produce two issues of a playful publication dubbed the WilliWear News. The newsletter unfolded into a poster that presented short articles on lifestyle, fashion, and the arts, often through personal references to Smith’s art collection, friends, and his bulldog Rufus.
