Arcane Publishing and Matt ArtPix had a brilliant day yesterday at the always lovely Bridport Vintage Market.
The weather was perfect and we met and chatted to interesting people, which is always a bonus!
I have posted below a few pictures of our stall.
Some of the books will now find their way to our unit at The Customs House in West Bay (on the second floor!).
Our Russian posters attracted a lot of attention! Unfortunately, we had forgotten the labels for them - and therefore couldn't give people the full details! These are pretty special posters from the 1930s which had been reprinted in the 1970s. Find the information below (and those labels are now safely stuck to the posters so we do not forget them ever again!).
It has been a while, but finally, we can confirm that Arcane Publishing will be attending the fab Bridport Vintage Market with Matt ArtPix this Sunday 30th June. We will bring a few bundles of Miss Gish's books, and also a limited amount of stock, mostly some of our latest finds!
Her here the books we'll be taking on Sunday:
Tomorrow, Friday 30th June, we will be delivering our big basket full of beautiful children's books to our unit at The Customs House in West Bay, Dorset!
We've got classics, vintage books, poetry books, books about animals and others about pirates, a few books from Australia and New Zealand... There is something for everyone...
And our prices are very low!
Tomorrow, I will be paying a visit to our unit in West Bay, Dorset (the one we share with Matt ArtPix).
The summer season has now started and the number of visitors to The Customs House is growing, therefore it is important to keep the unit looking fresh and attractive - hence numerous visits over the next few weeks!
I will be taking a few books out and put some new ones in...
Here are the volumes that will take pride of place on our shelves tomorrow!
Classic glamour, classic cinema, classic rock'n'roll...
If you are one of those people who think that the best music ever was created in the 60s and 70s, then these are for you!
Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Velvet Underground...
I still need to research them and spruce them up a bit, but they are all in a very good condition, and some of them seem to be pretty rare!
You will find them on our stall when we start doing events again as Arcane Publishing in a few weeks' time!
In the meantime, I will be helping Matt ArtPix (and selling some clothes I want to get rid of) tomorrow at the fantastic Shepton Giant Flea!
Even though it is going to be a few more weeks before I can attend events again, I have been hunting for yet more stock. Finding interesting, rare and beautiful books is becoming more and more difficult, but when I see then, I get them!
This week's finds:
American publication, 1976
This is an Australian volume, 1989.
Most of my stock is made of rare second-hand books which I cannot risk putting in our unit at The Customs House, West Bay, Dorset.
But now and again, I put on the shelves some books I think might be of interest to the varied audience that visits us there!
Today, I have added a few action-packed books, and Matt ArtPix has put a few new colourful additions to his shelves, ready for the Easter weekend!
Arcane Publishing is a small independent imprint with a passion for beautiful books.
