Located on the corner of Pitfield Street in the heart of Shoreditch, Bookartbookshop is both a retail outlet and platform from which to showcase artists’ work. Set up by Tanya Peixoto in 2002 as a space dedicated to the promotion of artists’ books and independent art presses, the shop has since gained a stellar reputation. Aside from the ‘zines, workbooks, posters, poetry and graphic novels, Bookartbookshop hosts exhibitions, lectures, book launches and educational activities demonstrating the virtues of the artists’ book. Dealing solely in small press runs and limited edition work, the shop feels fresh and relevant – supporting only current artists keeps it that way. From miniscule ‘zines filled with breathtakingly intricate illustrations to underground, artist produced catalogues, Bookartbookshop is a lair of creativity. If the galleries are out of your price range then turn to the book – you won’t find such a range of affordable, original, artists’ work anywhere else in London.Show lessRead more
