We'll be back very soon!
We had an amazing time at Alice's Wicked Tea Party two weeks ago! We will post pictures, etc. on here, but we are just too busy at the moment!
We'll be back very soon!
It has been a while since we have posted on here, but this doesn't mean we are not working behind the scenes!
We are now readying ourselves for next week's event, the first of the year for us!
Arcane Publishing and Matt ArtPix will have a stall at the Alice Wicked Tea Party festival in our new home county of Dorset!
The festival will happen very near the beautiful Corfe Castle in the glorious Dorset countryside on Friday 2nd June and Saturday 3rd June.
On the Friday, we will be in the audience and on the Saturday, we will have a stall selling books, magazines and more! We are really looking forward to seeing all the bands (especially She Made Me Do It, whom we've been trying to see live for a while and of course Black Volition, who played at our event London: Winter Tales in London in February 2016). We are also intrigued by the awesome Crispin Gray's new outfit, Starsha Lee. We will also be there to discover new bands!
Of course, as usual, we will adapt our stock to the type of event and we will have a lot of music-related items as well as books about comics, design, photography, cinema, fantasy and sci-fi... and of course, we will have copies of our very own books for sale, Miss Gish's I Am a Muse and The Book of Thoth!
As usual, we will have a nice selection of books from our friends at Ignite Books and well as copies of Kill Devil Delta written by ex-Devilish Presley Johnny Navarro and designed and typeset by Arcane's very own Matt ArtPix!
Here's a preview of the stock we'll be taking with us to Knolle Farm:
As the summer season has officially started, the Arcane Publishing/Matt ArtPix team is getting ready for what we hope will be a fruitful few months!
If you find yourself in West Bay, Dorset, come and see us on the second floor of The Customs House (next to the East Beach car park, where the now famous Broadchurch cliffs are located!)
We have already announced an event for June: Alice's Wicked Tea Party, a local, grassroots alternative music festival which will be taking place a short drive from the beautiful Corfe Castle.
More to announce!
Arcane and Matt ArtPix are delighted to announce our first event of 2017 in our new home of Dorset!
Find us at:
Alice's Wicked Tea Party - 2nd and 3rd June 2017
At Knolle Farm, Soldiers Road, Wareham, Dorset
A grassroots music festival now in its third year, AWTP is moving to a bigger new venue in the Dorset countryside, next door to the famously beautiful Corfe Castle!
It features a wide variety of acts including the fantastic Black Volition who played our first event in London in February 2016!
Arcane and Matt Artpix will bring a great choice of carefully picked art, books, vinyls and more!

More news soon!
Things have been really hectic here at Arcane/ArtPix HQ after our move and sadly, Miss Gish hasn't had any time to spend on The Right Place draft...
Following up on Miss Gish's previous blog about the fantastic stuff on our doorsteps (read it HERE) - including St George's church and its intriguing churchyard, here is a great new video from local band The Dolmen shot near our house at St George's church and the Tout Quarry Sculpture Park!
Portland is the perfect backdrop for music videos and promotional shoots - with its dramatic coastline, rich cultural heritage, intriguing and often uncompromising architecture... The island and the county of Dorset in general is the inspiration for so many artists and writers...
We do feel at home, here!
We are slowly settling down into our new HQ.
Still loads to do!
But when it all gets too much inside with all the boxes, we can nip out and within 2mn, we are on Chesil Beach.
Perfect for inspiration!
There will be some Arcane Publishing and MattArtPix news in March!
Watch this space!
This colourful little chap adorns the entrance to the new Arcane Publishing/Matt ArtPix towers in Dorset! Yes, we have finally moved!
We still have a lot of things to sort out but we hope to be able to start telling you more about our future plans.
We are now only 20mn away (by car) from Abbotsbury and St Catherine's chapel where Miss Gish's third novel/work -in-progress is set.
We will update you on our progress and future plans and blog about the stunning county of Dorset!
Arcane Publishing and Matt ArtPix will be back in January 2017 with, we hope, loads of news about our move to Dorset, future events and projects.
See you next year!
