Now that the summer season draws to a close, we expect things to slow down in our unit at the The Customs House in West Bay, Dorset.
We are now booking a few indoor events for this autumn and winter and are already looking at potentials for next year, especially good quality events in the South West region. We have quite a few we would like to try out on our list...
Whilst Matt ArtPix has had a successful summer, sales of books have virtually stopped now for a year.
I have had mixed results with my high-quality second-hand books too, and my cupboards are still full of excellent quality, rare and beautiful looking volumes about cinema, fashion, and much, much more!
We still have a few copies of I Am a Muse and The Book of Thoth on the shelves, but we have removed most of my second-hand books. West Bay is not the right place to sell books, and this winter, I will look at alternative ways I could trade in lovely second-hand books - including expanding my online shop to a full-blown "Arcane Books" shop.
This of course will depend on several things, including our availability (managing an online shop can be very time-consuming!)
In the meantime, we have kitted out our unit with promotional posters and flyers for the next event we will attend:
Vintage Somerset in Wells on 22nd September.
Arcane will bring some hand-picked books about Fashion (these were really successful at the Giant Shepton Flea in June!) and a few rare volumes about some gorgeous cinema icons!
Arcane Publishing is a small independent imprint with a passion for beautiful books.
