NEWS SPLASH! Inkpot & Pen Press

This is the time of year when the Inkpot & Pen Press gets particularly busy, creating new books, going to book fairs and pop ups.

I shall be exhibiting at the Anna Lovell Jewellery Pop Up Shop in Shoreditch on 8th, 9th and 10th June. Along with Anna I'll be with Lagar de Senora organic olive oil and wines and Hackney Honey. I can vouch for both of these products having tried them many times! We'll also be selling ceramics and cards, but the thing that draws most people in is that we'll have twiglets!

This weekend I was at the wonderful Turn the Page Artists Book Fair in the Forum in Norwich. It's such a friendly fair and I always meet such interesting visitors and book artists. My map of Norwich went down very well, so I'll be fulfilling the orders for this during the week. Soon the Tittle Tattle of Tufnell Park and Noodling in Norwich maps will be on the site for you all to see.

Dates for next year's Turn the Page 2019 are May 17th and 18th, put it in your diary now!

NEWS SPLASH! The Corridor Pop-Up Book Squeeze

Following our success at Turn the Page artists’ book fair in Norwich back in May, (where we won the book fair prize), Harrington & Squires and Inkpot & Pen Press have decided to put on our own artists' bookfair in Tufnell Park, London called The Corridor Pop-Up Book Squeeze. Along with Mike Nicholson of Ensixteen Editions and Mette Ambeck of Ambeck Design we’ll be opening the doors of Harrington & Squires from Thursday 5th October to Sunday 8th October 2017.

We’ll all have work on show, and for sale, with some of these being exciting collaborative projects we’ve worked on, including Inkpot & Pen Press's latest book, 'Holly'.

Holly is a collaboration with writer and journalist Sandra Lawrence, who I also worked with on the artists' book, Columbia Road.

I hope you’ll be able to come along and look forward to seeing you.
