Matt ArtPix has been hard at work on Part I of The Book of Thoth, trying things out... It does look good... A few tweaks required but we're there, really!
Busy weekend here... Matt ArtPix and Arcane Publishing are preparing their stocks for our next fair, So Vintage London at Old Spitalfields Market in London on 5th July! For this event, we are concentrating on Entertainment, Fashion and glamour, with a few surprises thrown in... And of course, we will be selling our first published novel, I Am a Muse, and promoting our next one, The Book of Thoth!
We will have flyers and a little press file, including issue 2 of fab vintage mag V&OAK featuring Miss Gish and Matt ArtPix!
Great Music from The Movies (Reader's Digest, 1968), boxset, 5 vinyls!
From Gone With The Wind to The Third Man, from Casablanca to East of Eden... You name it, it's the ultimate classic soundtrack!
This amazing item will make an appearance at our next event, the So Vintage London market on 5th July at Old Spitalfields...
We are delighted to confirm a second event for Arcane Publishing and Matt ArtPix: we will have a double stall at the Southend Book and Arts Fair at The Forum on Saturday 4th october 2014 as part of our new swanky library's first anniversary celebrations...
We are really looking forward to it; the event taking place a mere 10 minute-walk from our house is an added bonus!
We have just acquired a few items for our stock, just on time for our next events (news just in this morning!): Arcane Publishing and Matt ArtPix will be trading at Old Spitalfields Market as part of So Vintage London on 5th July. We are very pleased to have been selected and we hope that this will become a regular spot for us... Maybe not every months, but several times in the year would be good! We have some more exciting events lined up for you for the rest of the year, but we need to confirm them first before announcing them. Watch this space!
Below are a few new acquisitions from this weekend. I would like to concentrate on fashion, music and classic cinema icons and glamour for So Vintage, so I was really thrilled with some great finds!
80s fashion with some great illustrations!
The book itself is not vintage, but it features reprints of some of most outrageous pages from Cosmo 1970s and 1980s! Super for fashion students and fashion history nuts! 100% perfect condition!
And now for the gents... Really wonderful book, and 100% perfect condition!
I have also acquired some cute books!
Bod was apparently very well known... This is a first edition, 1966! This goes for £50 in ebay, by the way... What a find!
This is just lovely... 1972 edition.
And always popular on our stall...Peanuts! A lovely 1980 set of five!
Now we have to get ready for our stall on 5th July! We will post about our stock in the forthcoming days!
Apparently, the French town where Miss Gish grew up was a big centre for alchemy ! This series of intriguing symbols are located in a cul-de-sac named "l'impasse du chat" (the cat's cul-de-sac).
Sign 3 shows John Dee's Monas Hieroglyphica, which features in our second novel, The Book of Thoth.
Miss Gish is really proud to present her interview with poet and publisher Steve Pottinger, founder of Ignite Books. Steve Pottinger has given us some great tips about indie publishing and has even typeset our first novel, I Am a Muse!
You will find the interview HERE... We promise, it's a great read! There are also a couple of videos to watch! Enjoy...
And remember, on the same page, if you scroll down, you will find the cracking interview we did last month with the fabulous Jordan Reyne!
