  1. We’re working on some letterpress prints for our friends The London Bookshop Map.
If you don’t know already, The London Bookshop Map is a fantastic project that aims to support the diversity of publishing represented by independent bookshops in London. The London Bookshop Map is available for free at your local independent bookshop (and at LCBA). Each issue of the map includes a commissioned text-based work by contemporary artists. The current edition features work by Dora García. We’re working on some letterpress prints for our friends The London Bookshop Map.
