The other week I had a great time at The Bookhive in Norwich, where Illustrator Richard Horne (elhorno) has installed his Print Vend machine! The vending machine is full of original prints and is loads of fun to use! If you are in Norwich go and have a go! (Plus there are tonnes of brilliant books in store!)
Yesterday I visited London and came across Sotheran’s of Sackville Street, an antiquarian book and print shop, which had an exhibition of Eric Gill prints on. I was able to see a selection of Gill’s wood engravings, most of them printed on delicate Japanese paper. I was glad to find the shop as, not only did it have a great exhibition, it had some lovely books for sale too! I was able to get a copy of the Eric Gill catalogue, ‘Ravilious Wood Engravings’ and ‘An Alphabet of London’ by Christopher Brown! There are also many other prints available to purchase by a variety of artists.
If you are in or planning to visit London it is well worth a visit. The Eric Gill exhibition runs until 10th April 2015.
