Its good to get out, and sometimes we struggle to find the time but we have managed to bag up some mags and book our train ticket to Takeover 2015. So, come and say hello and maybe pick up some of those missing back issues.
Saturday 9th May, 12pm – 7pm, FREE
In the second event of our Takeover Series, we’ll be taking over 47/49 Tanner Street with a day that champions all radical publishing – from its independent bookshops and publishers to its DIY-ers; the small press, self-publishers, and zinesters.
A collaboration between Alternative Press and The London Radical Bookfair, the inaugural Takeover event took over Bishopsgate Institute in 2014. Spread over three floors, this was the first event of its kind to bring together U.K’s radical publishing and self-publishing communities.
Takeover 2015 will see us take this event to a new height by taking over an entire Victorian warehouse.
We aim to showcase the depth and breadth of the U.K small press scene. We welcome all exhibitors – from zinesters, comic folk, book artists, and illustrators; those who use a photocopier or a printing house; have been doing it for years or just starting out. And we are very excited to present this year’s Takeover Exhibitors and our First Publications Corner - a space dedicated to those new to the scene.
Saturday 9th May will see us literally takeover 47/49 Tanner Street – from the very top with our AROOO on the Roof to The Yard with our programme of screen-printing, game-playing, soap-boxing and zine-making.
Full details of the all the Takeover 2015 workshops and talks here.
Alongside this programme, we will also be hosting the second AP does Bread and Roses – an exhibition with 21 small press artists responding the books in this year’s B&R award shortlist.
Takeover 2015 is a free event – open to all.
